Kelly imparts wisdom

U.S. Rep. Trent Kelly is no stranger to the City of Union, and Monday, he returned home to inspire students in the Union Public School District to go after their dreams. Kelly graduated from UHS in 1984 and attended East Central Community College before graduating from Ole Miss.

He earned his bachelor’s degree from Ole Miss and his law degree from the Ole Miss School of Law. In 2010, he received his master’s degree in Strategic Studies from the U. S. Army War College in Carlisle, Pa. When not on Capitol Hill, Kelly lives in Saltillo with his wife of 27 years, Sheila, and their three children John Forrest, Morgan, and Jackson.

“I’ve failed more than I’ve succeeded,” Kelly told the students. “Don’t quit, and never give up, and if you want something be willing to sacrifice everything to get it.”

That’s some great advice to follow, not just for students but for everyone. We applaud Rep. Kelly for his successes, and we know that he will continue to represent Union and Mississippi well. — Brent Maze
