HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The Forrest County Board of Supervisors named Michael Turnage as the new executive director of the Forrest County Multi Purpose Center.

This man is no stranger to the facility with previously working at the center's onsite systems director.

As he takes on his new role, there are a few new things that will be offered at the center."We are not just an equine center," Turnage said. "We do have barrel races and rodeos, but we have so many different types of events. It's really going to be a good year and we want to expand upon what we already have to make it even better."

This weekend's event will be the 2015 May-Fest barrel race Saturday through Monday.
