Workforce Development Program Held in Hayneville

Dozens of Lowndes County residents participated in a Small Business Workshop on Thursday, December 13, 2018.  The program, hosted by BancorpSouth and the Alabama Cooperative Extension System’s Auburn and Tuskegee University offices, targeted entrepreneurs.

John Lyon, Community President BancorpSouth, speaks to attendees about business banking fundamentals.

11th and 12th grade students from Central and Calhoun High Schools learned about the basics of financial management for small businesses and business banking fundamentals.

Regional Extension Agent Kevin Burkett, who specialize in Commercial Horticulture and Farm and Agribusiness Management, discussed some of the start-up situations facing small business owners.

Lyons said of the program, “I hope that the attendees learned that there are a wide array of products and services that are tailored to meet the needs of small business owners (as well as businesses of all sizes), so the most important thing to remember is to develop a good relationship with a banker of their choice who will help guide them through the process of choosing the right products and services for their specific needs.”
