completed a year of service with the Forrest General Spirit Girl
Spirit Girls, a program of Spirit of Women, is designed to reach young
women through events targeted at promoting self-esteem, encouraging
healthy lifestyles and community service!
This year Spirit Girls participated in a wide range of activities,
including community service projects for organizations such as the
American Cancer Society, American Heart Association, Association for
Retarded Citizens (ARC), Hattiesburg Zoo, Hattiesburg Junior Auxiliary
and Waiting for a Cure Foundation, just to name a few. Spirit Girls
also participate in Spirit of Women events, focus groups and modeling
at Turtle Creek Mall in both fashion shows and as mannequin models, a
favorite activity of many of the participants.
The program offers opportunities for young ladies to learn about good
self-esteem, the importance of taking action for their health and of
giving back to the community. For the 100 young ladies that make up
the 2014-2015 Spirit Girls, which represent 28 schools from Forrest
General's 17-county service area, the hours of community service
contributed through various events provided a chance to make lasting
contributions to their community, as well as lasting friendships.
"As we continue to grow the Spirit of Women program, we feel it is
important to reach today's young ladies so that they will mature into
healthy young women," said Millie Swan, Director of Marketing and
Physician Relations and Spirit of Women Director at Forrest General.
"The Spirit Girls program allows young ladies to give back to the
community, participate in fun events and at the same time focus on
education and important issues facing today's teenagers."
