First Lady Marsha Barbour welcomes Bodega to downtown Jackson
A panoramic view of the beautiful State of Mississippi takes you through the vast cotton fields of the Delta, the rolling hills of the Northeast, lush pine forests leading south to the sunny beaches on the Gulf Coast and to the great river that forms the western border. The Mississippi offers a kaleidoscope of scenic locations with sports and activities that can be enjoyed year-round.
Our greatest resource is our people. In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, Mississippians revealed strength of character that caught the attention of the nation. Surrounded by devastation and destruction, spirits were never broken. The power of perseverance has brought about recovery and renewal. We continue to rebuild a better and stronger Gulf Coast.
Two areas that are vital to the future of Mississippi are health and education. Through campaigns like "Let's Go Walking Mississippi," families are encouraged to get moving and get healthy. We strongly support programs such as the American Heart Association's "Go Red for Women." We are never too old or too young to take care of our bodies and develop our minds.
Thank you for your visit and please come back soon!
Mississippi's First Lady
