Target Industries

Given Pearl River County's proximity to Stennis Space Center, the County is well-positioned to expand aerospace, aviation, and defense opportunities. The Picayune Municipal Airport borders Stennis Space Center. Plans are completed and one round of federal funding has been awarded to the City of Picayune for the Ridge Road Extension Project, which will directly connect the Picayune Municipal Airport to Stennis Space Center. According to Stennis Space Center's 2010 Economic Impact report, 28% of Stennis personnel lived in Pearl River County. Therefore, County residents are trained in these skills and understand the industry. Additionally, Pearl River Community College's workforce training programs, as well as its aerospace technology course offerings, provide the technical workforce training needed for these high-skills positions.
