HATTIESBURG, MS. (WDAM) - Dr. Angie Godwin, President of the Area Development Partnership, announced on Wednesday that she is stepping down from that position at the end of the year.

Godwin has led the ADP for nearly five years. She says her next move will be to work with the Nicolette Company, a family business. That company owns several Hub City establishments including Blooms Garden and Gift, Blooms home and Hearth, the Depot Coffee House and Sweet Shop, University Florist and the Dunn House Bed and Breakfast.

She also plans to write a book about her father's battle with Alzheimers disease, and advocate on behalf of those affected by the illness.

"Really it's kind of a personal journey, and I've loved my work at the ADP and all of our businesses are members of the ADP and we want to continue to be a part of just taking on a different role," said Godwin.

A search committee is being established by the ADP to select a new President to lead the organization. Dr. Godwin says the committee will possibly conduct a nationwide search and announce their choice by the first of the year.
