Leflore County Reviews

In my opinion, This county is very small and quiet. The community is very traditional and consistent. For example, they have color runs and races to raise money for different charities every year. Thousands of citizens in Greenwood sign up and volunteer to make a difference in another person's life. We take pride in our friends and families around us. Personally, I am from Greenwood. Usually, we are known for "THE MIGHTY BULLDOGS" who are also known as Greenwood High School. They are one of the best teams in the county. A lot of Alumni's take pride in their future superstars and scholars who are going to change other's perspective about the Delta. This county has a lot history dealing with racism. There are a lot of famous and cruel incidents that happened during the 50's-90's. Many tourists visit the small city to explore old historic buildings that are located downtown. Hopefully, you might be intrigue to come explore and gain knowledge about this little town.

I've been living here all of my life . It's home! I would love to see more schools and jobs become available. The need for better educational resources is very high. I would like to see the school curriculum change.
I have lived in Itta Bena, all of my life. Growing up, it was a place full of life, love, and leisure. However, over the past few years the living conditions have worsened. For example, the only grocery store closed in 2009, and has yet to reopen. The police department closed in 2012. Itta Bena Headstart, the only early childhood education center, closed this year. The only bank in town (Regions) will be closing in October... It seems like the entire city is shutting down around me. There are little to no jobs available in this area and progression is unpromised. That is what I see in the future for this area. Itta Bena, my hometown, is nothing like it was when I was a kid. I am applying for this scholarship so that I can pay for the courses needed to attain my Bachelors in Healthcare Management and be able to relocate my children to someplace better. Please, I need financial help and scholarships are mt only options.
