MidSouth Community FCU Sponsoring Dallemand Investiture

The Investiture of Dr. Dallemand as the Bibb County School District Superintendent on January 31 is being sponsored by MidSouth Community Federal Credit Union.

“We look forward to the Superintendent bringing a fresh perspective, strong focus, and a total-commitment to quality education in our community,” says Harry Trawick, MidSouth Board Chairman and retired Bibb County School District Deputy Superintendent. “MidSouth was founded by Bibb County educators originally, for Bibb County educators, and this foundation remains strong. It's important for those who can, to step forward and help build our educational system from every aspect, including financial support when possible.” 

“This major contribution by MidSouth is a wonderful example of how this community comes together in support of educating our students – our most important product,” says Board Member Ella Carter. “The Board of Education is most appreciative of this kind gesture.”
