“I am honored to be appointed by the Governor as a Commissioner and look forward to being a part of the continued growth in Vicksburg and Warren County,” Ingram said. “The past and current members of the Port Commission had a vision focused on economic development. The active expansion of our industrial park and port, and the planned new port, are a testament to their dedication to our community and state. I will strive to continue their vision and work for the betterment of Vicksburg and Warren County.”

The Warren County Port Commission (WCPC) oversees the operations and management of industrial, marine and port-related assets in Warren County, such as the Port of Vicksburg, the Ceres Industrial Park and other river-related and economic development assets. The WCPC is directed by five commissioners; two appointed by the City of Vicksburg, two appointed by the Warren County Board of Supervisors and one appointed by the Governor. 

Reeves in a pronouncement about the appointment stated, “The Port of Vicksburg is a center of commerce and an economic engine for Mississippi, and it plays an integral role in supporting America’s supply chain. Donna is incredibly capable and will make a great addition to the Commission. I wish her the best of luck in her new role and look forward to seeing the positive contributions she will make to the port.”

Don Brown, Chairman of the Warren County Port Commission stated, “I know I speak for the entire commission when I say that we are excited to have Donna in our team. She is a bright professional and we believe her input will be of great consequence to the important work we do for the community.”
