COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI) — Three Columbus city Council members have earned a special designation that many elected officials never try to attain.

Ward 6′s Charlie Box, Ward 5′s Kabir Karriem and Ward 2′s Joseph Mickens have received their certified public official recognition from the Mississippi Municipal League.

The three earned the distinction after completing a lengthy series of training programs and seminars related to city government. They were recognized at Tuesday night’s City Council meeting.
