I am honored to be a member of the Host Committee for Mississippi Gulf Coast native, House Minority Leader in the Georgia State Legislature and current Democratic Candidate for Governor of Georgia, Stacey Abrams.
Stacey’s roots reach to Hattiesburg where her parents are from, however she and her five siblings grew up in Gulfport. Her family’s commitment to providing educational opportunities led them to Georgia.
I could go on about her accomplishments and commitment to service, instead I direct you to her website, www.staceyabrams.com, and suggest you read for yourself.
Her experience and ambition to uplift all families can be an inspiration and possibly spark dialogue for us here in Mississippi
