One thing that I like about Prichard is that you are in a community of people who look out for one another and keep watch over every one who comes in out and out of the neighborhood. Although there are very little opportunities given in this city I wish that there were more activities given to the local youth that would help them to make their futures more successful.

There really isn't much to say about around here. There isn't many stores here are food for less, dollar general, family dollars, and etc. There isn't any big selection stores like Walmart, dollar tree or etc. There isn't a wide range of fast food places mainly Burger king, Hardies, and McDonald's. The school aren't that good and most of the teachers don't care that much about the students. If you want to do anything fun, grocery shop, go to school, or etc you would have go further out of the city. There's not much to do here and the stuff to do here is either not kept up well. Or doesn't have all that you need.
It's a small town with plenty of potential for growth. Prichard is a unique town with very interesting and talented people.
