The first face many tourists see when they visit Corinth is most likely Sherry Brown at the Alcorn County Welcome Center. A 13-plus year veteran supervisor at the center, Brown said she enjoys being an ambassador for the state of Mississippi and Corinth and Alcorn County. “I love talking to people about all the great things we have to offer,” she said. “No matter what, I always try to promote a good image for the state.” Married to Mike for more than 25 years, the couple has one son, Jagger. “He’s 20 years old and is in the Marines,” she said. Jagger is actually following in his dad’s footsteps, pursuing a career as military police. “He’s based in Japan right now. We normally go visit him wherever he is stationed, but I don’t think we’ll be going that far,” added the proud mother.
