CCCRA President Paul Price was born in Copperhill TN, raised in Cherokee Co NC and Hart County GA, and lived in Murphy NC, Hartwell, Peachtree City and Senoia GA, and Bowling Green KY. Paul's entire career was in the Automotive industry in quality control, production and manufacturing engineering. After retiring from the GM Doraville Assembly Plant, he and his wife Ann moved to Hayesville in 2013.  They have one son, Scott, and three granddaughters. Paul started volunteering for CCCRA in 2015 because he "saw a good organization trying to do great things for the community and a group of people with a passion for making Clay County a better place." His hobbies include golf, volunteering, building "stuff" and restoring old cars and buildings.  Paul led the restoration of the Historic Courthouse that was completed in 2018, and continues to lead the Courthouse Committee.  Paul said "I have always been interested in historic preservation and have worked with historic preservation commissions in my previous hometown, and was pleased to have worked with CCCRA on the historic courthouse. I always strive to leave a place better than I found it, and so far, I think I have accomplished my goal."
Born and raised in Hayesville, board member and former president Rob Tiger attended Western Carolina University, majoring in Social Science and Anthropology, with a focus on Archaeology. His continues his work in those fields by networking with WCU professors Jane Eastman, PhD and Brett Riggs, PhD, and David Moore, PhD at Warren Wilson College. With wife Holly, whom he met at WCU, and physical therapist daughter Lauren, Rob owns and operates Tiger's Store & Chinquapin's Ice Cream and Soda Bar, popular hangouts for locals and tourists alike! Rob is an accomplished songwriter and musician; through his Songwriter's Showcase at the Peacock Performing Arts Center, he supports other musicians and brings great entertainment to Hayesville.  His other "hobbies" are history and volunteering. Rob co-chairs CCCRA's Cherokee Culture committee, and is involved with the Clay County Historical & Arts Council and the Hinton Center. He started with CCCRA at its inception, when he saw the need to revitalize a struggling town and to save its history.  Rob notes that many events and activities in the town can be traced back to CCCRA or other close partner organizations in Hayesville/Clay County.  "The grass roots efforts have provided economic benefits through culture, heritage and recreation."
