I grew up in the Mississippi Delta experiencing all the fun things which make that place so unique. Taught 26 years in a Delta school before retiring to start a new career so I understand the challenges of our area. Growing up at Lula near the Helena Bridge, I was lucky to have one foot on each side of the river. I feel at home in both Arkansas and Mississippi. Much like so many of our famous writers and musicians, I realized the Delta is just one place with a great river running through it.
