I have known and worked with Terri for over 25 years. We worked together in her capacity as Morgantown Main Street Director and my duties as Design Consultant for the WV State program. We have also worked on other ventures, both in and out of the Main Street community. She has always maintained the utmost professionalism in all of her undertakings. But most of all, her ardor underscores the professionalism and her enthusiasm pervades all she undertakes. There is no better advocate for your project. Working with Terri is always a pleasure and enjoyable. I am proud to call Terri a colleague and friend.

Terri's considerable downtown revitalization experience made her an invaluable partner in developing an economic development plan for Friendsville, MD. She worked with my firm to create innovative strategies that tap into the surrounding tourism based economy, including marketing opportunities to attract new residents and visitors. She has a great understanding of how small towns can reinvent themselves into places that represent the best of what an area has to offer.
For eighteen years, as the City Manager of Morgantown WV, I was pleased to work with Terri Cutright in her capacity as Executive Director of Main Street Morgantown. During that time, I knew her to be a talented, creative administrator known to get things done that otherwise would not have happened. She was also very effective in forming short and long term partnerships that very well served the City. As a result of her many good works, Downtown Morgantown today is a prosperous, economic hub of the City while retaining all the features of its rich heritage. Terri's contributions to Morgantown are very much appreciated.
I have worked professionally with Terri for over 25 years. She is a dedicated community development, economic development, marketing, planning and preservation professional. Recently I had the pleasure of contracting with Terri for our Planners R Us project and a young talent research project. Her work exceeded our expectations and met our tight timeline for completion.
I met Terri at Certification Institute in 1998. She was outgoing and friendly, and I immediately learned the extent of her Main Street knowledge. Terri and I have often brainstormed ideas or run things by one another. She is a critical thinker, and her commitment to success is unwavering.
While I was State Coordinator for the Ohio Main Street program, I had Terri speak on her Town/Gown experience at our State Conference. The attendees gained valuable insight from her and left with new ideas to move forward.
I consider Terri Cutright to be one of the best Main Street Directors in the country. She is someone that knows Main Street forward and backwards and is a fabulous resource. Her work ethic is unmatched and she will get the job done.
I came to work for the City about 8 months ago and have had the privilege to get acquainted with Terri and her work. She has become a great resource for the City. I love her energy and passion and willingness to help us address tough issues. Thanks Terri!
