King appointed to state Board of Directors

October 3, 2023

Sharon King, Clerk of Council for the City of Laurel has been appointed to serve on the Board of Directors for the Mississippi Municipal League.

King has served the city as clerk of the council for 27 years. During that time, she has completed several professional development programs and received certifications up to and including Master Municipal Clerk. She is currently enrolled in the Education Plus Program within the International Institute for Municipal Clerks (IIMC) to further her level of education, skills and experience within the municipality she serves.

The Mississippi Municipal League (MML) represents cities and towns throughout the state and is organized into three districts corresponding to the Mississippi Supreme Court districts. The organization is governed by a board of directors appointed each year by the MML officers of each district.  The current officer for Laurel’s district is Hattiesburg Mayor Toby Barker who will serve for the 2023- 2024 session. The MML Board meets three times during the year to review recommendations from the MML Executive Committee.


The City of Laurel, established as a lumber town in 1882, is conveniently situated approximately two hours from larger destination cities such as Jackson, Biloxi, New Orleans, and Mobile. In recent years, the city has become a destination all its own thanks, in part, to its starring role in HGTV’s popular “Hometown” series. As Laurel, and interest in it, continues to grow, we are committed to providing the resources necessary to help all of our residents and businesses reach their full potential.
