Trip Hairston, the President of the Lowndes County Board of Supervisors, said, “We are proud of the partnership with BankFirst and their commitment to the Lowndes County community. This partnership will enhance one of the best sports complexes in Mississippi and assist our community through economic growth and development.”
Former Lowndes County Recreation Director, the late Roger Short, initiated the project with the vision to create a place for families to gather, youth to grow, and a top-notch atmosphere where memories can be made, and friendships can form while enjoying America’s national pastime.
Tom Velek, Interim Lowndes County Recreation Director, stated, “This project hits close to home for me. Carrying out Roger’s legacy and seeing his vision come to life is a humbling experience. Roger would be so proud of all the combined efforts in making this project come to fruition. I am truly honored to be a part of this project."
