Section 5 — Corporate Governance and Management
     Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
     Effective immediately following the 2008 annual meeting of shareholders held on April 23, 2008, Travis E. Staub resigned from the Board of Directors of BancorpSouth, Inc.(the “Company”). The Board of Directors selected James E. Campbell III to fill the vacancy created by Mr. Staub’s resignation. Mr. Staub’s resignation was not the result of any disagreement with the Company.
     Mr. Campbell was a director of Volunteer Bank from 1989 until Volunteer Bank’s merger with BancorpSouth Bank in 1992 and has been a member of BancorpSouth Bank’s Board of Directors since that merger. Mr. Campbell is currently chairman of BancorpSouth Bank’s Directors’ Loan Committee and will continue to serve in that capacity. BancorpSouth Bank has made loans to Mr. Campbell and his affiliates that (i) were made in the ordinary course of business, (ii) were made on substantially the same terms, including interest rates and collateral, as those prevailing at the time for comparable loans with persons not related to BancorpSouth Bank, and (iii) did not involve more than the normal risk of collectibility or present other unfavorable features. Mr. Campbell will participate in the Company’s 1995 Non-Qualified Stock Option Plan for Non-Employee Directors.
     A copy of the press release announcing these changes to the Board of Directors is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference in its entirety.
