Voices from the Community

Water Valley Mayor Donald Gray agreed the economic, social, and physical components of this project is going to be a great change” for the city. The physical part is going to make our city much better. The economic, I can’t even start to imagine. …Hopefully a lot of these students will come back and build houses and become taxpayers,” Gray said. People can make a good living and these kids make a really good living starting out. They feel better about themselves … about their families. https://mississippitoday.org/2020/02/03/5-million-tech-center-expands-effort-to-close-skills-gap-as-tech-firms-step-up-investment-in-mississippi/
