HHDA holds its annual awards luncheon

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The Historic Hattiesburg Downtown Association held its annual award luncheon at the Hattiesburg Train Depot Thursday.

The group presented awards for volunteer of the year, leadership, innovation and promotion of the arts.

They also introduced the new association president Joey Jarrell.

The even was a chance for the group to enjoy lunch and discuss the progression of downtown.

The association hopes to expand the footprint of the downtown district to be contiguous with all of the other historic overlay districts in the city. 

"It's not that there's a lack of things to do downtown it's just that people just don't know. So one of our main goals for 2016 is really to make sure that we are communicating the message of everything there is to do downtown," HHDA director Andrea Saffle said.

    Following a school-record 55 wins and run that ended in an 8-7 loss in the NJCAA national championship, Jones County Junior College softball is eager to open the 2018 season on February 3. Coming that close to the school’s first national title serves as motivation enough for the Lady Bobcats. Regardless, expectations are always high for coach Chris Robinson’s teams – JCJC is a combined 105-12 the last two seasons.
