City holds 3 events for inauguration day

July 2, 2013

Residents from all over Starkville turned out to witness the changing of the guard during the city’s inaugural services on Monday.

The city’s new board of aldermen — composed of Ben Carver, Lisa Wynn, David Little, Jason Walker, Scott Maynard, Roy A. Perkins (who was absent from the day’s festivities) and Henry Vaughn — and Mayor Parker Wiseman took oaths just before lunch in the City Hall courtroom, following a prayer service at First Baptist Church and ceremony on the steps of City Hall. The event opened with an invocation from Rev. Joseph Stone, and Starkville Public Safety raised the flag. Jasmine Murray performed the national anthem and Starkville High School Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps presented the colors, leading the procession inside for the swearing in ceremony.
