HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Developers of the Hattiesburg Midtown project have been recognized for their contributions to the Hub City-area economy.
CR Properties received the Small Business Leadership Award during an annual luncheon at Southern Oaks Wednesday.
It was hosted by the Area Development Partnership and William Carey University.
Keynote speaker for the event was Southern District Public Service Commissioner Sam Britton.
"There comes risk being in small business, but also the rewards," said Britton. "So, what we need to do is to make sure to educate and teach our kids, tell them the stories about what is possible and tell them that there is a very positive future."
Several scholarships were also presented during the luncheon.
