“A man for all seasons; LaForge book the latest achievement”

[William] LaForge is one of the great talents to ever come out of the Delta, and he has never forgotten who he is or where he came from.Testifying Before Congress, by William LaForge

LaForge has always been quick to give back to his community and quicker to come back for a visit every once in while, including just a few weeks ago.

A shareholder at Winstead Sechrest & Minick, P.C., specializing in government relations/public policy, LaForge has been a main figure on Capitol Hill as chief counsel of the U.S. Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Agriculture and culminated his government career as chief legislative counsel and chief of staff to Sen. Thad Cochran. Previously he served as Congressional liaison for the Peace Corps and as a legislative assistant to Mississippi Rep. David Bowen.

He’s been all over the place — studied international law at Cambridge, received fellowships to study government and public policy in the European Union and at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.
