SPIRIT OF OKTIBBEHA: Shaw brings jobs to MSU, Golden Triangle

August 4, 2014

Joe Max Higgins has a nickname for David Shaw.

Higgins is CEO of the Golden Triangle Development LINK, a regional economic development authority that works to bring businesses like Yokohama Tire Company to the region and create jobs. Shaw is vice president for research and economic development at Mississippi State University, overseeing the Thad Cochran Research, Technology and Economic Development Park as well as president of the MSU Research and Technology Corporation (RTC). Higgins said the LINK interacts with Shaw almost daily, and that teamwork lends itself to a sports metaphor.
