Carr has served on the statewide board as a representative of the Delta region for the past 4 years.
“The Mississippi Tourism Association is an organization that focuses on advocating for and promoting travel and tourism in the state of Mississippi,” said Rochelle Hicks, Executive Director of MTA. “We are very excited to welcome Kelli Carr to our Executive Board of Directors. Kelli has been involved in our association and our industry for many years and is a strong advocate for tourism not only in Cleveland, but also our state.”
Carr will serve on the executive board for 4 years, where she will eventually serve as President of the association.
“It is such an honor to be nominated and elected by my industry peers,” said Carr. “Tourism is such a vital industry not only on the state level, but the regional and local levels as well. We continue to welcome visitors from all over the world, and we recognize the economic impact tourists make on our communities. I am thrilled to be representing not only Cleveland, but our entire state.”
