December 31, 2012

From Staff Reports
Daily Times Leader

There has never been a shortage of news in West Point and Clay County in the past.
2012, however, proved to distinguish itself as far as newsworthy stories are concerned.
This year was truly a banner year for this community, as we saw the West Point/Clay County Growth Alliance forge a partnership with the Columbus/Lowndes Development LINK in the Spring, which by September had inspired leaders in Clay, Lowndes and Oktibbeha Counties to drive toward an economic partnership that would encompass the entire Golden Triangle region.

Dyess, who heads BancorpSouth in West Point, also serves as the Civilian Aid to the Secretary of the Army for the state.
His short but powerful commencement address drew from his years as a commander and a special forces solider.
