This is the perfect place for families to live! The entire community supports one another when going through a hard time, and the community is extremely supportive of the students at Central A&M.

Moweaqua is a quite town with hardley ever any problems. We are a very close nit community. All of my graduating class has grown up together since kindergarden. We are all really friendly and know our neighbors.
Love my small town. It's quiet, not dangerous, and some place I'll always get to call home.
