Iredell County, North Carolina
In the north and some southern parts of Iredell County farming/dairy farming is the major economic focus. Central and southern Iredell County has its major focus on industry and booming industry at that. With its close proximity to Charlotte, major transportation crossroads of I-77 (north/south) and I-40 (east/west) and 80,000 strong in skilled work force Iredell County is vibrant and growing.
Iredell County is also the heart of NASCAR being home to many race drivers, NASCAR Technical Institute and NASCAR related businesses and shops.
The people of Iredell are in great hands with Iredell County Sheriff Phillip H. Redmond who has done an outstanding job of protecting and serving the county with innovation. The major crossroads, mentioned above, also bring illegal transportation of contraband, alcohol and illegal aliens. However, Sheriff Redmond has aggressively gone after this type of criminal by creating the "Interstate Criminal Enforcement Team." This highly specialized team has apprehended not just the criminals but their contraband and Sheriff Redmond has used it to build offices throughout the county to better protect its citizens, improved the crime lab technology and purchased new patrol cars also with upgraded technology. Kudos to Sheriff Redmond!
Another kudos goes to the Iredell-Statesville Schools which in 2008 received the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award which was given for performance excellence! The Iredell-Statesville School District covers most of the county with the exception of the city of Mooresville which has its own Mooresville Graded School District. Both districts have excellent and innovative schools and serves their students well.
For location, quality of life, work, education and recreation you cannot beat Iredell County!
