Ambassador of the Month

Congratulations to Bradley Knight, Asst. Branch Manager at Trustmark Bank in Pearl for earning the title of Ambassador of the Month in March. Bradley is a huge help to the chamber by attending and volunteering at events and being willing to do whatever is needed. Bradley was presented with a $25 gift certificate from the Alumni House Sports Bar & Grill, the sponsor of the Ambassador of the Month program. 

Firefighter of the Month

We are proud to announce that the September Firefighter of the Month is Firefighter Blake Chennault. Blake graduated from NWR High School in 2012 and attended Hinds Community College before starting to work at the PFD in 2014. Blake is married to Callie Murphy Chennault and they are expecting their first child in December. They are also the owners of an exotic collection of turtles that was featured on Animal Planet last year!
From the first time that he stepped on the engine, Blake’s passion for firefighting and helping others was evident. He is always eager to obtain any training that is offered that will help him to be more knowledgeable and well trained. He just completed the first ever EMT Advanced Class that was offered by the MS State Fire Academy. We are fortunate to have Blake at the PFD and we are happy to honor him with this award.

Lt. Pat Walker

We are proud to announce that the Pearl Police Department Officer of the Month in December is Officer Robert Filbert. Robert is the School Resource Officer at Pearl Lower Elementary and has been with the Pearl PD since September 2019. He graduated from Franklin County High School in Meadville, MS and joined the U.S. Army and served for over 21 years before retiring. He attended the Police Academy at the Harrison County Training Center in Gulfport, MS. Robert requested a position as a school resource officer and immediately began building relationships with the staff and parents at the Lower Elementary. The School and City Hall have both received many compliments on Robert’s attention to detail and his positive attitude. They depend on him for everything from order in the car rider line to making everyone feel safe at all times. We are thankful to have a dedicated officer like Robert to take care of our school, staff and our precious children.
