Mark Gould Lifetime Achievement Awards

Each year, we bestow the host of the annual Summer Job Fair with the Mark Gould Lifetime Achievement Award. The award is named after Mark Gould, a 20 year old African American who was changing his life but unfortunately was gunned down in Pine View Apartments on Thursday, April 5, 2018 in Hattiesburg, MS.
 
The job fair was created in his honor to offer more opportunities to the community while decreasing crime. 
Here are the honorees:
