In Late 2017, the Stennis Institute teamed up with the Mississippi Municipal League and Delta State University to deliver the Delta State University Local Government Leadership Institute. The first session of the LGLI was an introductory discussion on the program, followed by Dr. Breen’s Forms and Functions of Local Government. Following this presentation was a series of community development presentations by Dr. Joe Fratesi, Mr. Jeremy Murdock, Ms. Judy Phillips, and Mr. Joe Young, all members of the Stennis Institute expert staff. We are excited to enter our 2nd year of this three-year collaboration and are poised to help the people of the Delta delivery good governance.
Below is a link to the press conference celebrating the annual celebration of the LGLI initiative.
