She was very awesome very humble.

She will help anybody.

And really made me wanted to be a supervisor myself, because she was a great leader to me.

Along with the humanitarian award king's store received two other awards.

One of the reasons francis king was chosen for the humanitarian award was her work helping a group of people that is often forgotten.

Former convicts..

Our rylie livinston takes a look at how her program is giving them a fresh start.

She joins us in the studio with more.

Life after jail can be a challenge.

Staying on the right side of the law can be hard if you can't support yourself.

Many find their past conviction a stumbling block to landing a good job.

But for some help is out there.

It's a question many people have when they get out of jail.... where do i go from here?

"i kept having people come in and ask for a job and saying they couldn't find a job because they had a record.

And then it was some like that people saw the tell other people that she'll hire you with a felony or she'll hire you with a record, and it just grew from there."

For frances king it's all about second chances.

She started partnering with restitution centers to help get people back on their feet... now around 80 % of her employees come from the program.

"i hired them to work off their fine and some stay decided to relocate in the area, and it's just giving them a second chance to get together when they get out for employment and and learn a job skill.

And i've started a couple of years ago, doing that and it's just something i've really grown into."

"so what happened is they're maybe working off a fine.

Paying rehabilitation things and also it's given us the opportunity to have some great employees so to rehabilitate some people."

But the program isn't easy... participants have to come in with an open mind.

"number one is they have to have their mindset that they're ready to do better.

So it's wonderful when you have those that is a goal for them to succeed and it's a goal for me to help them get there."

But the help doesn't stop after the participants move on to their next journey..

King says she tries to stay in contact.

"i get to just spread the love i just love giving people an opportunity and then just to be able to help them.

A lot i'm trying to get home their family and their kids.

And i loe kids and so it's their goal to get home to their kids and it's my goal to help them get home."

King says it's important for people leaving the justice system to have a support system to lean on and to help guide them towards positive decisions.

Take developing story stinger today, amory voters are deciding whether the city will become the latest to sell wine, beer or liquor.

Allie martin talks with people on both sides of the ballot and has more.

Voters braved the rain and sleet to cast ballots in the special election to decide whether amory will be a wet or dry town.

Two propositions are on the ballot.

One would allow the sale of beer and light wine, while proposition two would legalize the sale of liquor.

Orein holley voted yes for both proposals.

"people go out of the city, the county to buy alcohol, to neighboring cities and counties and we need that revenue here."

Holley recently bought the old park hotel on main street, across from frisco park.

He plans to renovate it, turning the space into apartments, and an upscale restaurant.

He believes the legal sale of alcohol will be good for his future business and the entire city.

"i think it would be an added bonus for the city of amory by having alcohol sales here and for restaurants, we are the only city in north mississippi, basically, that doesn't sell alcohol."

Standup bridge but those on the other side of the issue believe the legal sale of alcohol would do a lot to damage the unique qualities found in amory, they also don't believe the economic impact would be that significant.

"that's a unique stance in this part of north mississippi, hopefully businesses will see and say they want to be part of something unique going on in this city different than some of the other cities that are here, i don't understand rationalization of making us like everybody else."

And whichever way the vote goes, dr. lloyd sweatt says he will pray for and promote unity in the city.

"i'm still going to love peoplei love people who are for and against this alcohol, i will still , and most will, my prayer is we all come together, stronger, united, regardless of the outcome."

Allie martin, wcbi news if approved, alcohol could only be sold in amory.
