CLEVELAND — Recognizing a long history of positive “town-gown” relations and recent questions raised by some in the community, Cleveland Mayor-elect, Billy Nowell and Delta State University (DSU) president John Hilpert announced they will name an ad hoc committee to discuss ways the relationship can be enhanced.

Dr. Kent Wyatt, president emeritus of DSU, has agreed to chair the committee.

“This idea arose when Mayor-elect Nowell visited my office,” said Hilpert. “We are both enthusiastic about plans and opportunities that will come from the process.”

Appointees and a specific charge to the committee will be announced in mid-July after Nowell takes office.
