MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Every physician graduate has dozens of opportunities to practice medicine. Recruiting them to our region is a challenge. It is an easier challenge when they visit and find citizens who believe in our community. 

Exciting needed physicians, companies who employ hundreds and potential job applicants in a cross section of businesses to live and work in our region is key to our growth. 

Perception problems of our area as a great place to live and raise a family go away when those being recruited see and hear first hand that it is but that is not always the case. 

It serves no helpful purpose to bad mouth your home town.  Constructive criticism to improve the quality of life is always welcome but to tear down your home town hardly welcomes others to come and participate in making it better.      

The reality is the assets and resources our community offers are the envy of many communities.  Appreciating those assets and resources must come from within. 

Open your hearts and minds to the reality of what we have and dwell less on what we lack.
