Pinks Dudley was recognized on August 11 as a Modern Woodmen Hometown Hero for her decades of work with Starkville Habitat. Mrs. Dudley was nominated for this award by Joel Downey and members of the Habitat board of directors. In Mrs. Dudley’s honor, a $100 donation will be given by Modern Woodmen to Starkville Habitat.
Modern Woodmen, a fraternal financial services firm, recognizes Hometown Heroes in our community each year. These Heroes are people who, either in their line of work or as volunteers, go out of their way to do good for others in the communities in which they live.
Lamar Advertising has donated billboard space to Starkville Habitat in various Starkville locations. Two images – one highlighting the resale store, and one encouraging donations, volunteering, and applications – will run indefinitely as space allows on the digital boards located on Hwy 12 in Starkville. The local Lamar representative, Justin “Jay Tee” Thompson was happy to make this happen for Starkville Habitat.
