Winston County was strategically chosen along with Prentiss County and Monroe County to participate in the Mississippi Development Authority (MDA) Ambassadors Program. Each community is required to take part in multiple intense economic development forums throughout the year-long program in preparing their individual community for growth and economic development success.

Winston County recently hosted a forum in Louisville focused on workforce development issues and opportunities to address key concerns to improve the economic development process. Dr. Sharon Younger, Dr. Ruth Nichols, and MDA officials were on hand to lead the forum on this progressive topic.
