She deserves all the praise and it’s reported that her hometown is even thinking of giving her a key to the city.
The decision to rename the street was approved by a unanimous vote and there were discussions to have Missy receive a key to the city.
“Growing up I learned that this same girl who’s received all these awards, performed at the White House…she grew up right here in our city of Portsmouth,” Carter said. “Children shouldn’t have to look to another city to see greatness, because greatness resides in Portsmouth.”
Missy took to Twitter to express her gratitude for the recognition. Check it out below.
