- Regina B. Schofield, former U.S. Assistant Attorney General for the Office of Justice Programs. At Schofield's confirmation hearing in 2005, Trent Lott, born in Grenada, said:
I am very proud of her background, being from Bude, Mississippi. It is a long way from Bude, Mississippi, to Washington, D.C., and the Justice Department. In fact, if I gave you a map, you probably couldn't find it, but you have got some areas in Kansas pretty far out at the end of the road, too. It is a lot of beautiful people, and I know that community is very proud of Regina and her achievements.
