Above is Dr. Vaughn Grisham at the Carter County Community Partner’s Summit Friday, Aug. 9. He is director emeritus of the McLean Institute for Community Development at the University of Mississippi, and gave the keynote presentation. His lecture entitled, “Extraordinary Results in Ordinary Communities,” highlighted ways Carter County and other communities can work on developing and growing both in business and in relationships. He often compared Carter to a small, poor community in Tupelo, Miss., that came together to produce a thriving economy.
