Mississippi State hosted the national Enterprise Rose Fellows on Tuesday, March 4.

Fifty current and past fellows met in the Baptist Town neighborhood of Greenwood, current fellow Emily Roush Elliott’s project location.

(Elliott is co-hosted for her three-year stint in Greenwood by the Greenwood-Leflore-Carroll Economic Development Foundation and the Carl Small Town Center of the School of Architecture at Mississippi State).

Afterwards, the current fellows headed to Starkville to work with Elliot’s class – co-taught with Leah Faulk Kemp, assistant director for the Carl Small Town Center – and present their projects before a larger group of MSU architecture students.

A “Fat Tuesday Feast” was held after the presentations for the fellows, faculty and students.
