TVPPA is proud to announce that our own Kim Culpepper, director of Education & Training, has been named to Timeless Magazine’s Top 10 over 50, a list recognizing 10 individuals over 50 years old in Meridian, Miss., who have made a meaningful difference in the Meridian community.

Culpepper, who began his career at TVPPA in 2013, after retiring from a distinguished career with East Mississippi EPA, was recognized for his contributions to Meridian’s faith and business communities. As a worship leader and associate pastor at Evangel Temple Church, he has worked to organize church leaders from across the Meridian to support a variety of programs including a musical benefit to support the work of the South Harbor Shelter and community-wide Christmas celebrations; as well as working with a program specific to his church that helps buy groceries for those in need.

In addition to his work with Meridian’s network of faith leaders, Culpepper played an instrumental role in helping establish a lineman apprentice training program at Meridian Community College (MCC) and actively encourages members of the community to pursue the many educational opportunities available to them through MCC and the Meridian branch of Mississippi State University.
