    Miss Hospitality contestants bring smiles to Forrest General patients

     

    HATTIESBURG, MS – (July 19, 2017) A group of 25 young women from across the state who are competing in the 2017 Mississippi Miss Hospitality Pageant took time out of their busy pageant week to visit Forrest General on Tuesday, July 18.

    During their visit, the contestants received a welcome from Tyra Willamor, Forrest General’s Spirit Girl and Sweetea coordinator. The contestants brought joy and smiles to young patients as they toured the hospital’s Pediatrics department.

    “I was happy to have the opportunity to speak with the Miss Hospitality contestants during their visit to the hospital,” said Willamor. “The goal of the Spirit Girls and Spirit of Women programs is to encourage young women to make healthy choices early in life. Being health conscious and educated about wellness empowers women to make informed decisions about their health. We wish each of the contestants the best of luck, and hope they enjoy their time in Hattiesburg.”
