Every October we take time to observe the wonderful culture and people of Mississippi.
As a native Mississippian, making sure the state is depicted in a positive light is one of my primary career goals. Oftentimes Mississippi is shown as a place that lacks or is behind the times, but that notion is so far from the truth! Mississippi is a place with rich history and is full of people, young and old, who are succeeding and blazing trails just as spectacularly as anyone else in the world.
Our team has vowed to spearhead the positive imaging of Mississippi and its residents.
This is our third annual Mississippi Month and this year you’ll read stories about all parts of the state. From the Delta to the Coast, we will share fun facts and sit with people who are doing their thing in their communities. To be a part of this wonderful project, please contact as at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mississippi Month will run the entire month of October.
