Celebrating 22 years of operation is a great milestone for The Mississippi Link, and because we share our anniversary month with internationally recognized Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we proudly dedicate this, our anniversary issue, to ‘Breast Cancer Awareness,’ just as we have done in previous years.
Over the years, we have met countless individuals that have shared their courageous stories of how they battled breast cancer and won; and we look forward to hearing more great stories because every situation is different, every person is different, and every story is different.
To those that have won, to those that have succumbed, and those that are still battling, we dedicate this week’s publication to you.
We are extremely grateful to have reached this milestone of 22 years of publishing The Mississippi Link newspaper. We must thank our readers, subscribers and advertisers for inspiring us by continuing to support our efforts with each edition. We understand it is because of you that we can truthfully say, we have a successful publication, both in print and online. Our goal is to reach even greater success in the future.
It’s been a good year. In fact, it’s been a great year! We say this because we have known tough years and understand the struggle. By using the formula of patience, prayer, and hard work, we have more than survived. Our future is bright and we plan to protect it by using the same formula.
Personally, I am so proud of our staff that works tirelessly to make certain we produce a high quality print edition each week and a digital edition each day. Our staff members each have different personalities, different habits, and different desires, but at the end of the day, it is their common excellence and great team work that make The Mississippi Link a great newspaper.
We are proud of our growing success and will continue to provide a quality newspaper. We enjoy sharing positive news regarding what is going on in our schools and our communities and we enjoy publishing a newspaper that ignites interest throughout our city, state and nation.
We can safely say that The Mississippi Link print edition and the daily online edition (www.mississippilink.com) function as a vital ‘link’ that connects our communities and state to the nation and ultimately, the world.
As we celebrate our 22nd year anniversary, we are both humbled and excited to have served you with effective coverage of news and information, as well as advertisements of products, businesses and services that have helped our readers become more informed.
With your continued trust and commitment, we look forward to many more years of serving out our motto, “Keepers of the Knowledge for People Who Speak the Truth Since 1993.”
