Vincent has lived all over the south, including Tallahassee, Florida; Mobile, Alabama; Jacksonville, Alabama and Birmingham, Alabama. But he says living in Jonesboro has its own special charm that’s made him love working and living there.
“It’s the Delta!” he says. “It’s been built and sustained on hard work. The Delta presents its own unique challenges, but overall it’s that mentality of hard work that allows us to be great.”
