JACKSON, Miss.–The 2012-2016 edition of the Mississippi Blue Book was released this week by the Secretary of State’s office.
The almost 800-page behemoth showcases famous people from Mississippi like Will Primos of the hunting industry all the way to technology leaders like Joel Bomgar.
“In this edition of the Blue Book, we highlighted the faces of Mississippi–people who portray the hardworking, determined spirit of Mississippians,” said Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann. “The intellect, drive, dedication and determination in their faces mirror our own, and we are pleased to highlight their accomplishments.”
The book is published every four years and is mandated by law for the Secretary of State.
The publishing costs were just over $100,000 for all the books according to Hosemann and paid for by taxpayer’s money.
Anyone can get a copy of the book for free by contacting the Secretary of State’s office by phone, mail, or online.
