What's in a name? Nash County residents are about to find out.
The Rocky Mount Telegram reports that county commissioners plan to choose a new slogan Monday to adorn welcome signs along major highways leading to the county.
In August, the commission voted to spend more than $27,000 for new signs, and held a countywide contest to come up with a new slogan for Nash. Staff members had proposed "Your Gateway to the Triangle," but commissioners wanted to hear from the public.
Residents made around 35 suggestions, with possible slogans touching on everything from hospitality to the local sweet potato industry.
The new slogan will adorn signs that also include the phrase "Welcome to Nash County" and the North Carolina state flag.
