JACKSON, Miss. – On Thursday, the Mississippi Main Street (MMSA) Awards luncheon in Jackson honored three women from Vicksburg.

The Annual Awards Luncheon celebrates Main Street directors, board members, and volunteers. It recognizes outstanding downtown revitalization projects and events from designated Main Street communities throughout Mississippi.

“2024 is a special year as we celebrate 40 years of Main Street and remember our founders and the leaders who have gotten our statewide organization to where we are today,” MMSA Executive Director Jim Miller said. “Main Street programs are an important economic driver in our state, and we honor and celebrate the local and state champions each year at our Annual Awards.”

They acknowledged Rebecca Sigh as one of the five 2024 MMSA Main Street Hero Awards for her work with the Vicksburg Main Street Program and the Vicksburg Farmer’s Market.

Linda Fondren received the 2024 Outstanding New Development Project award for her work “Cooking Up Connections at Catfish Row” with Catfish Row Museum.

Kim Hopkins, who has been with the Vicksburg Main Street Program for sixteen years, received the 2024 Charles Beasly Main Street Director of the Year award. The program will host Destination Downtown in September of this year.
