Flowers chosen to lead Delta Council as 76th president
As Bowen Flowers begins his term as Delta Council’s 76th president, the Coahoma County farmer is facing one of the biggest disasters to hit the Delta in recent history.
April’s floodwaters flooded homes and businesses and left a path of destruction that will last long after the swollen rivers recede.
Instead of being formally introduced to the public during the 76th Annual Delta Council meeting at Delta State University in May, Flowers and scheduled keynote speaker Jim Barksdale gave their stage time to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Mississippi Emergency Management Agency to brief the public about the unprecedented high water facing the Mississippi Delta.
