Miss Hospitality contestants bring smiles to Forrest General patients | Community Spirit
A group of 35 young women from across the state who are competing in the 2012 Mississippi Miss Hospitality pageant visited Forrest General on Tuesday. The contestants took time out of their busy pageant week touring schedule to bring joy and smiles to patients in the hospital’s Pediatrics department.
During their visit, the contestants received a welcome from Kathy Emmons, Forrest General’s Spirit of Women coordinator, and toured the Women and Children’s Services area. A highlight of their tour included a stop in the Pediatrics Department where they visited with patients and their families.
“It is always a pleasure to have the Miss Hospitality contestants visit Forrest General,” said Emmons. “The time they spend here spreads cheer to patients and staff while giving these outstanding young women an opportunity to learn more about Forrest General and how we care for our community. Inspiring women to take action for their health is the central goal of our Spirit of Women program, and we enjoy the opportunity to talk to these young women about the importance of making healthy choices beginning at a young age. We wish each of the contestants the best of luck, and hope they enjoy their time in Hattiesburg.”
