Strasburg and Stewardson to welcome Peace Corps Fellow, Strasburg village-wide meeting planned for Jan. 9

Eric Sutton of Macomb will be the new Peace Corps Fellow for Strasburg and Stewardson. Sutton will assume the position in January.

Sutton recently received a Master’s of Business Administration from Western Illinois University. He will work for Strasburg three days per week and Stewardson two days per week with the villages splitting the costs of his services, which will be focused on economic development.

Strasburg is planning a strategic planning meeting from 2 to 4 p.m. on Jan. 9 in the Community Building with Brian Moody from Tuscola. The meeting will be the official welcoming for Sutton, but interested community members are invited to attend to help prioritize Sutton’s duties during his tenure at the village. Refreshments will be served.

He has worked for the Illinois Institute for Rural Affairs as a Peace Corps Fellow and Graduate Assistant with the Rural Economic Technical Assistance Center. While there he Assisted with research and analysis of economic development activities in rural Illinois and provided technical assistance to rural communities. He has also worked for the Peace Corps Fellow and Graduate Assistant at the WIU Volunteer Services Office.

From 2007 to 2008 he worked for the United States Peace Corps in Niger, West Africa. He worked on infrastructure and agricultural improvements for small business education and formation.

The upcoming meeting will help Strasburg refocus priorities and goals.

“Through the Mapping in 2008 and then creation of the Strasburg Community Action Network in 2009, Strasburg has set several goals and accomplished them,” said Gary Kull, president of SCAN. “Now the village needs community input again to set more goals and generate support for upcoming projects.”

More information will be posted at for more information or follow the village at “I know where Strasburg, Il is!” on Facebook.
