WLOX Editorial: Civic leadership leads the way to help others

There was a recent meeting of large group of civic and business leaders. When you see a group like this, you might normally think they would be discussing how to grow business, how to improve tourism, or maybe how to draw more industry and jobs to the region. But that was not the case for this group.

They all got together and brain stormed on unmet needs for those who cannot help themselves or just need assistance. This group not only listed the problems but also began real work on solutions for all kinds of social needs in the community.

Our hats off to all of you who are united in your efforts. You are all demonstrating the true spirit of the organization that brought this group together; The United Way of Jackson and George Counties.

That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
