Elizabeth Valla took over as Scribner’s Economic Development Director in February 2020. Elizabeth obtained her Bachelor of Science degree in Mass Communication from the University of Nebraska at Omaha in 2012.
She completed Nebraska’s Economic Development Certified Community Program, certifying Scribner as one of 40 communities in Nebraska. In March of 2021, Scribner was recognized by Lt. Gov. Mike Foley on its accomplishments of the certification.
