Honor ceremony for Laurel housing authority executive director

LAUREL, MS (WDAM) -

A ceremony was held Tuesday at South Central Place to honor Kay Guy, the Laurel Housing Authority Executive Director, for her 40 years of service.

Many speakers, including the mayor and fellow employees, praised Mrs. Guy's positive attitude and respect for all.

"She's been a joy to work for," said Ailrick Young, Assistant Executive Director of the Laurel Housing Authority. "She's one that values your ideas, your input. Her mark is certainly visible because you can see the changes physically."

One of Guy's most recent projects involved the development of over 120 low-income, tax-credit homes and townhouses.

 

"It's been a great career," reflected Mrs. Guy. "I've really looked at it like it was a mission in helping the people of Laurel. I'm going to miss all the people the most, the ones I've worked with and the residents."

 

Mrs. Guy is looking forward to relaxing and spending time with her grandchildren during her retirement but she said she will still be around.

"I wish her well in her retirement," says Mr. Young. "We're all going miss her and we just wanted to take this opportunity to celebrate her 40 years of service."
