Washington has a reason to celebrate after being named the North Carolina Rural Center’s 2019 Small Town of the Year. The award recognizes one town in North Carolina each year that has embraced the values of citizen engagement, diversity (The old 'D' and 'I' words surface again) and strong partnerships to help the community move forward through economic development. During the award presentation, N.C. Rural Center board member Lige Dautridge cited a few items that made Washington stand out, including efforts to create inclusive community events, positive economic development and mitigation plans to make the city more resilient during major storms
