The city has hired Trina George, the one time USDA Rural Development State Director, as its director of personnel.

George’s role with the city, according to City Manager Trey Baker, is the operation of the city’s human resources department and also helping to implement strategic staffing plans, compensation and benefit structures, and comprehensive performance evaluation processes.

Baker said he envisions George being instrumental in the development and training of department heads.

“Trina George is the real deal,” Baker said. “She is a proven administrator who produced major results for the State of Mississippi in her role as State Director for Rural Development. Her experience and network will be tremendous assets for the city. I have every confidence that she will be able to lead our personnel and human resources efforts and be an innovative force in the city as we continue to press Grenada forward.”

Baker declined to say what George’s salary would be, but did say other personnel changes had taken place.
