Applications for the position will be accepted through Sept. 23, said Gary Chandler, president of The Alliance.
Main Street Corinth Executive Director Kelly Rinehart will become The Alliance’s membership and marketing coordinator.
“Kelly will continue with Main Street through Hog Wild and beyond, if need be,” Chandler said.
The 2011 Hog Wild BBQ Festival in downtown Corinth Sept. 29-Oct. 1, is more than two decades old and is one of Main Street Corinth’s premier events.
Rinehart has served as executive director of Main Street Corinth – which is a program of the Alliance and shares its offices – for about two years.
“She will bring to The Alliance a background in marketing that really no one else in our office has,” Chandler said.
Main Street Corinth sponsors a number of community-building events between July and December to foster community spirit and promote downtown. Events include:
• The Slugburger Festival in July, which Parade magazine chose to feature this year as one of Mississippi’s favorite food festivals.
• Hog Wild, a barbecue cooking contest sanctioned by the Kansas City BBQ Society.
• Celebrate Corinth in November, with retail open houses throughout downtown, samples of cuisine from local restaurants, entertainment and a silent auction.
• The Corinth and Alcorn County Christmas Parade in December.
