Fritsche Elected as Newest PCDC Board Member
13 Mar 2023
Community service has been a major part of Allison Fritsche’s life for the past 10 years, and now she is giving her time as the Phelps County Development Corporation’s newest board member.
“Economic growth is important to me so our county can remain relevant and attractive for professionals to come and stay and to appeal to our youth to come back and build their lives here someday, too,” Fritsche said.
She has worked at Glenwood Technology for 10 years, and her current title is Sales Engineer/Public Relations.
“My profession is centered on constant growth and development,” Fritsche said. “I feel I can be an asset with the relationships I have developed over time as well as with the necessary understanding that growth never stops.”
Fritsche said she will bring to the board strong networking and relationships, open-mindedness, a solid work ethic, the ability to have an honest discussion in all circumstances, and experience on previous boards.
She currently serves as the membership chair/past president of the Holdrege Rotary Club, is a Holdrege Area Chamber Ambassador and youth group leader at the First Presbyterian Church in Holdrege. She previously served on the Holdrege Area Chamber of Commerce board of directors and the Concrete Solutions Committee.
Fritsche said Phelps County has many great assets including short commutes, safe communities, excellent schools and access to health care, a network of skilled professionals willing to work together daily, a sense of belonging and ample opportunities to give back.
“There’s also a never-ending focus on growing, becoming better and being open-minded to new opportunities for growth,” she said.
She sees the county’s biggest economic development challenges as housing, access to daycare and access to people for employment.
She said she is “honored, humbled and excited to work with such a highly distinguished group of professionals” on the PCDC board. She is filling the shoes of long-time board member Tim Rehm, who retired from his board position as his current four-year term ended.
Allison is married to Ryan Fritsche, a third-generation business owner of S&W Auto Parts – NAPA in Holdrege, Lexington, Oxford, Arapahoe and Alma. They will be married nine years in July and are parents to three daughters, Madylin Fritsche, Morgan Fritsche and Alexis Gill.
