Erin and Ben Recognized By House of Representatives For Home Town

On Tuesday, March 8, 2022, Erin and Ben were recognized by the Mississippi House of Representatives in Jackson, MS at the state capital.

The House honored their work of promoting tourism in their hometown of Laurel and the state through their HGTV home remodeling show. Representative Donnie Scoggin from Ellisville and Representative Robin Robinson from Laurel were there to support their neighbors and assist with the presentation.

All of us in Laurel are thankful for the Napiers' hard work and for the way they represent our hometown and state. Their desire to share the spotlight with other entrepreneurs and business owners is a testament to their servant leadership and love for others.

Erin's mother, Karen Rasberry, is a distinguished southern writer and proud Mississippian, and she gleamed with pride that day. She captioned her photo below, "Erin and Ben were thrilled to be honored by the Mississippi House of Representatives today. A tourism bill also passed that will greatly benefit the city of Laurel. Proud of my kids and proud to live in the great state of Mississippi!"
