Morris has a background in finance and a vision for growth and will continue to focus on the mission of Main Street Siloam Springs to revitalize downtown, according to a news release.
“I am excited to step into the role of executive director,” Morris said. “I’ve enjoyed leading the farmers market and watching it grow into a thriving venue for local farmers and vendors and a fun gathering place for our community. It will be an honor to lead the organization into a new season, serve our downtown stakeholders and community and promote our historic downtown district as a destination you don’t want to miss.”
Main Street Siloam Springs was established in 1985 and is focused on downtown economic development, the cooperation and leadership of the businesses downtown and the continued improvement of the historic character of the area.
