Bedford, VA - Amanda Adams takes over as Executive Director of Bedford Main Street, Incorporated Tuesday.
Adams has been on the job the last few weeks, learning the ropes from outgoing director Sue Montgomery, who is retiring.
Adams says she's excited about the opportunity to continue to grow and preserve Centertown Bedford.
"Everyone just has this amazing love for Bedford and just wants to see it sustain itself. Reverting back to the town, I think people were a little afraid what the future held for Bedford but everyone is still just so invested and just wanting to see it grow and be sustained," Adams said.
Adams has jumped right into her new role.
One of her first duties was assisting with the planning of the Centerfest community festival, which took place over the weekend.
