Each installment of Community Spotlight – with host Carolyn Smith – features a short interview with someone currently involved in a community oriented project that contributes to Making Grant County a Great Place to Live.

Community Spotlight airs on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays following News @ Noon and Community Calendar
