Mark Klinedinst | Mapping a Modern MS

Monday, September 12, 2016

An Economics professor at the University of Southern Mississippi, Mark Klinedinst is not only investing in his students, but also the community of Hattiesburg. Working with cooperatives, Mark helped found the Hattiesburg Farmers Market, which brings together citizens of different socioeconomic statuses. In addition to his work with cooperatives, he is also President of Gaining Ground Sustainability Institute of Mississippi.

“There’s an old bumper sticker that says ‘Think Locally; Act Globally,’ and I’ve sorta taken that to heart in my life.”-Mark

This interview is part of the Museum’s Mapping a Modern Mississippi Initiative.
