The Board of Directors of Delta Southern Bank is pleased to have been able to help the B.B. King Museum and Delta Interpretive Center meet the terms of a $2.5 million challenge from Jim Barksdale. Mr. Barksdale had pledged the funds to the B.B. King Museum provided their board of directors raise $500,000 in matching funds.

“We believe in the communities we serve and are especially interested in supporting those who make extraordinary efforts to help themselves. Our hope is that others will share in our effort to complete this exciting project. We’re proud to call the Mississippi Delta home and look forward to participating in the grand opening for this wonderful facility in 2008.”
-Joe Ricotta, President and COO, Delta Southern Bank.
