Elizabeth Barden, students at Stringer Attendance Center, recently
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."

issues relevant to the work and personal life of rural physicians. The
Scholars participate in a 5-week summer program at Mississippi State
University where they will take two pre-med courses (Biology and
Sociology), spend a few afternoons "shadowing" a physician in a
hospital or clinical setting, tour a major medical facility, and
attend a lecture series relevant to the interests of an aspiring physician.

to develop leadership skills in young citizens and prepare them for
college. In order to achieve these goals, the Summer Leadership
Institute brings together 40 student leaders from across the

Southeast to earn college credit on the UM campus and to

begin the study of leadership. The 40 students selected come from a pool of 1200. Included in the program are opportunities to mingle with college
administrators, student leaders, and community leaders while
participating in current event debates, discussions, and
decision-making activities. The program culminates with a one-week
trip to Washington, D.C., during which the participants see the
federal government in action, hear from national leaders, and tour the
nation’s Capitol. The ideal outcome is for students who complete the
program to return to their high schools and put their new skills to
work for the betterment of their own schools and communities.
