Molly Lovorn has been working to reinvigorate the Community Development Foundation’s Tupelo Young Professionals program. When she joined CDF in January, she set out to change the program that gathers young professionals in Tupelo and Lee County between the ages of 21 and 40 by making it less of a social gathering and more of a program for learning and developing skills in the professional and personal realm. Lovorn (11:12) joins Derek and Brad to talk about adjustments she has made, including luncheon speakers and a community service focus.
Also on today’s show, education reporter Emma Kent (6:05) discusses two new tests that join the GED as options for students seeking their high school equivalency certification.
Food editor Ginna Parsons (23:31) has an update on a new neighborhood market. Joyner resident Jerry Thompson sells produce from his prolific garden to raise funds that provide snacks and meals for low-income school children.
Brad (28:16) also gives us the wackiest crime reports from last week.
