I have lived here most of my life. The town is not so great for younger people because of lack of interesting things to do, the area is far from major cities, and jobs are scarce for employment. The college is convenient to get started and is of low cost. The city is low cost but with poor job prospects it is easy to remain living with family for longer than you would like. There really is not much a scene for anything other than work and school.

I was born and raised in Dyersburg. It's a small town that doesn't have much to offer, but I've learned that it's truly what you make it. I've grown to love and appreciate the little that Dyersburg has to offer. It's my hometown, where my community and alma mater school district gave me a chance to be a part of the team. My church, A New Birth Ministries, that I've attend for 26 years is here also. And most importantly, my family is here.
I do not like living in Dyersburg. The town is small and there is never anything of interest going on. I would like to see the bad roads fixed. There are several potholes all over town, and they are a hazard. It would also be nice if several roads could be repaved.
