Meet the CVB Interns!

  Meet the CVB Interns! We are so pleased to announce that the participants in our 2014 Internship/Scholarship program have been chosen!  This is the inaugural year for our program, offered in an effort to educate high school students in Yazoo County of the importance of tourism to the economy of our area, and to encourage them to consider Tourism Management as a profession. This year’s group of young people was absolutely outstanding.  They made our decision both exciting and heartbreaking, as we would have loved to have taken each and every one of this fine group of students from Yazoo City and Yazoo County under our wings.  In the end, Ebony Preston and Norman Lewis II were our picks.  They will spend two months during this summer volunteering at the tourism office and visitors center in Yazoo City before heading off to college this fall.
