MADISON MS NAMED ONE OF
AMERICA’S TOP 10 CITIES FOR FAMILIES
Family Circle has named Madison, MS one of the Top Ten Towns for Families in America. Family Circle Magazine, working in conjunction with On Board, a New York City based research firm, delved into the things American most want in a hometown. Their results culminated from “a first of its kind investigation to identity the best communities across the country that combine big city opportunities with suburban charm.” They sought out “locations that offer an ideal blend of good jobs, top rated schools, wide open spaces and a lot less stress.” Their findings and the ten cities appeared in the August 2007 issue of Family Circle.
The Family Circle and On Board’s ten top towns came from “a list of 1,850 places with populations between 15,000 and 150,000.” From that list, “800 localities were selected based on family-friendly criteria including low crime rate, health care, air quality, green space, schools, and jobs and Madison, MS was selected to rub shoulders with 9 other top rated cities. Family Circle assessed which towns best met those standards and ranked them according to state. The winners were selected from the highest-rated towns in the top 10 states nationwide.
Madison, MS Mayor, Mary Hawkins Butler said she was humbled by the announcement. “It is an honor to be chosen as on of Family Circle’s inner circle of cities. Their definition of ideal hometown life is very true to our daily dreams and desires for Madison. Family Circle said that in all the ten cities selected, Moms and Dads are hands on – they volunteer in schools and coach sports. Of course, volunteerism is what really makes a community. Churches and the volunteer spirit are in essence the backbone of any town. I salute Family Circle for understanding this and for caring about hometown America in such a special way. I am grateful for all the benefits that Mississippi brings in to the life of every community. This is the people’s award.”
Congratulations, Madison, MS, you are a beauty Queen among cities!
