I've lived in Region 8 for much of my life. My family comes from all corners of the region. My father is originally from Desha in Independence County and my mother's family is from Clay County. In fact, the town of Piggott is named after her great-great grandfather. I look forward to learning more about this wonderful community and providing up-to-date stories that are not only informative but entertaining. If you have any suggestions, I would love to hear from you.
