Sarah Newton | Mapping a Modern MS

Wednesday, September 21, 2016

In 2009, Sarah Newton founded Live at Five in Hattiesburg while she was President of the Downtown Association.

“I think for the first time people saw this is cool, this is fun, this is what people do in other towns that we’re not doing. So it’s been a wonderful thing to be able to provide. I mean, all we did was get it together, get the sponsors together, and put it on. And it’s become such a staple in the community that it’s really our civic duty to make sure it sustains.”-Sarah
