Quality is our thriving force.
When people look at Madison County, they often see a diverse yet delightfully complementary group of communities, from historic Canton with its Hollywood-ready beauty and charm, to the rapidly growing retail meccas of Madison and Ridgeland where artists have found a haven and new urbanism has found a vibrant home, to Flora with its refreshing reinvention of what an old-fashioned town can be. Four cities, each one with its own identity and its own particular appeal, but all with a singular dedication to quality.
It’s a quality that extends beyond the structural: Yes, our schools are excellent, our businesses are prosperous, our neighborhoods have been designed and built for lasting liveability. And yes, we are the home to Nissan and to other global dynamos; we are the MidSouth’s premier destination for lifestyle shopping. But we are also home to the bluest skies and clearest waters and the friendliest people you’ll ever meet. Because in an age where total quality management is all the rage, our idea of total quality includes a deep and sustaining relationship with the world and the people around us. Madison County flourishes because we care about what really counts.
So by all means, check out our outstanding metrics in schools, healthcare, etc. Just be sure to look a little closer at life in Madison County, and you’ll see that even as we are driven to succeed, our thriving force is the quality of our people.
