The Meridian Star

MERIDIAN —     The East Mississippi Business Development Corporation (EMBDC) recently presented its February Ambassador of the Month.  

    In first place was Sonya Scarbrough with BankPlus, second place went to Herman Stegall with Rush Health Systems, and third place went to Melissa Estes with WMDN/WGBC-TV. Also, winning the red ticket drawing was Brian Koroknay with Citizens National Bank.

    The red ticket drawing is from the pool of ambassadors who have attended EMBDC events over the past month.

    This committee of dedicated volunteers assists with numerous membership activities and events throughout the year including ribbon cuttings and ground breakings conducted by the EMBDC. They work to secure new members and increase membership retention by building relationships and maintaining communication with existing and prospective members.  

    This group consists of a limited group of people. The EMBDC would be unable to do all that it does without these dedicated volunteers. To find out more about becoming an Ambassador for your community, contact the EMBDC at 601-693-1306.
