Terry Wegman, Executive Director of the Big Spring Economic and Development Corporation, was recently announced as the Chairman of The High Ground of Texas.
The High Ground of Texas is a marketing coalition made up of over 75 members with economic development interests in the region. Developed in 1988, the High Ground represents cities, counties and organizations in the West Texas region. The main purpose of the organization is to create jobs and increase the tax base of the region. The organization works to have a strong presence on the regional, state, and national level with an emphasis on marketing the region to prospective new industries, networking, economic development, education, and providing a common voice on issues that affect the region.
Although Big Spring has been a member of The High Ground of Texas for many years, Wegman has been with the organization since 2007. As Chairman, Wegman will be working closely with the Executive Director and other officers of the organization, as well as conduct meetings. He noted that he’ll also be overseeing planning for upcoming events over the next year.
