Years before Entergy’s low-income focus became a corporate priority, company leaders and employees in Mississippi had established a legacy of community service and customer support.
Economic development in Mississippi began to increase during the mid-20th century, as decades of efforts like Mississippi Power & Light’s “Helping Build Mississippi” program led to new investment in the state.
Shaped by a legacy of growth, innovation, hardship, and disaster, Entergy today forms a bedrock in the Gulf Coast, America’s new economic powerhouse.
