Pascagoula Official Wins National Award

Stephen Mitchell, Pascagoula Director of Building Services, was recently chosen by the Association of State Floodplain Managers (ASFPM) as the Local Floodplain Manager of the Year.

The award, which is the highest national honor in the industry, will be formally conferred at their annual conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico in June, where Mitchell will be a guest of honor among the 1,000 attendees.

Officials from Mississippi and FEMA nominated him for the award for his dedication and positive efforts in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
