Malcolm White leaves Mississippi’s top tourism post

MalcolmWhiteJACKSON — Mississippi’s top tourism official has stepped down.

The announcement has come that Malcolm White is no longer director of Visit Mississippi, a division of the Mississippi Development Authority.

White said in a statement released by Visit Mississippi said it had been an honor to serve as state’s tourism director.

White said he is leaving the job he started Jan. 14, 2013, to pursue new opportunities in the creative sector. White previously served seven years as executive director of the Mississippi Arts Commission.

A native of Stone County, White is the author of “Little Stories,” a collection of Mississippi photos and experiences from his personal perspective on his home state.
