Simmons and the Mississippi Senate on Monday, March 25, 2019, honored Sylvia Green Jackson of Greenville with presentation of Senate Concurrent Resolution 604, commending her 46 years of community service as the Director of the Area Agency on Aging for the South Delta Planning and Development District which serves the counties of Bolivar, Humphreys, Issaquena, Sharkey, Sunflower and Washington.
