Partners for Stennis Space Center

Partners for Stennis is a coalition of Mississippi and Louisiana citizens who advocate for space, earth and ocean exploration. Our members are volunteer representatives from chambers of commerce, economic development foundations, businesses, educational institutions, local governments, community groups, and individual citizens.

Partners for Stennis Mission: Our mission is to act as a regional catalyst to develop and promote the Stennis Space Center Region for the enhancement of education, quality of life and economic opportunities. Partners for Stennis support various programs which ensure that government decision makers, business interests, and interested citizens know of the value and importance of the Center.

The Center is a unique federal and commercial city that is home to more than 30 federal, state, academic and private organizations and numerous technology-based companies. For more than four decades, Stennis has served as America’s largest rocket test complex. Located in Hancock County, Mississippi on the Louisiana border, the center offers a workforce of 5,000 civil servants, contractors, scientists, and engineers, providing a significant source of employment and income in the two-state region.
