Kylie McCrory joins Shelby County Chamber of Commerce as New Events And Special Programs Coordinator

The Shelby County Chamber of Commerce has created a brand new full-time position, Events and Special Programs Coordinator.

This position was created so that the Chamber team can devote more time and attention to community events while continuing to build relationships with members.

The Chamber is delighted to announce its decision to hire Kylie McCrory to fill the newly created position.

After graduating a semester early from the Early College program at Center Grove High School in Greenwood, Indiana, McCrory received academic honors, technical honors, and graduated early from Center Grove High School before attending college at the University of Miami in Oxford, Ohio. After completing her freshman year on campus, she returned to Shelbyville and transferred to Penn State University’s World Campus to pursue her bachelor’s degree in marketing.

“I want to make an impression on this city that will survive my time here,” McCrory said.

She is thrilled to win the opportunity to start a whole new role in the Chamber and come up with new ideas for the Chamber so it can continue to thrive.

“My goal is to try to achieve a broader, more diverse membership here in Shelby County, without alienating established business members. I’m especially excited about a fall fundraising event that we’re currently working on. I can’t wait to announce it to our members and the community – it will be a very popular event,” said McCrory.

Her father is well known in the county, Johnny McCrory, the news and sports director at GIANT fm radio.

“I constantly hear about how everyone loves my dad and the things he did for this community,” she said. “It makes me proud to hear all the positive feedback.”

She sees him as her role model as she begins to navigate her position as Events Coordinator.

“Kylie is a wonderful addition to our Chamber family,” said Donna Christian, Executive Director of the Shelby County Chamber. “I look forward to seeing her thrive in this position. With her intelligence and passion for detail, we will see many great things come from her work here at the Shelby County Chamber.”
