Prominent Mississippi businessman and two-time state economic development director Leland Speed passed away last week after a long life of community service and job creation. Speed, founder of Parkway Properties, Inc. and EastGroup Properties Inc., helped development on the state and small-town level. Many Mississippians can thank having a job to Speed. He lived a long and fruitful life and Mississippi benefitted because of him. Rest In Peace.
