Mayor will pay for trip to China

HATTIESBURG — Hattiesburg Mayor Johnny DuPree says he is paying his own way on a previously-reported trip this month to Linyi, China.

The DuPrees will be tagging along with a delegation from William Carey University.

William Carey vice president Scott Hummel says the school has a professor and student exchange program in place with Linyi Normal University.

Hummel says DuPree and the William Carey delegation will be in Linyi March 12-20 Two William Carey professors will stay behind to teach English at LNC until July 3.

Hummel says the party will meet with Linyi’s mayor to talk about economic programs.
