How Can Your Expertise Help a Business?
What Makes Your Local Community Special?
North Mississippi is home to me, but I think it's a very special place. We've got a diverse range of people here. We're not metropolitan. We're still very much a rural market, but Northeast Mississippi here is one of the largest micropolitans in the United States. We've got a variety of manufacturing, education. We have two division one universities roughly within an hour of here. You've got metropolitan markets in Memphis and Birmingham close by. You want a vacation, you can be at the mountains relatively easily or the beach, and along with that, we've got the healthcare system here locally. They are one of the largest rural hospitals in the country, two-time Baldrige Award winner. We've got manufacturers such as Toyota, Cooper Tire, Mueller Copper Tube, I'm leaving a lot of those out. Furniture industry's huge here. We've got two banks headquartered here, top Fortune 500 companies. It's a pretty cool place to live. So we're spread out, we've got a lot of rural communities. We've got big town amenities, but small town flare. It's a good place to raise a family.
