I am looking forward to us all getting together as we work together to bring the arts to the youth of Mississippi. I was at the Mississippi Theatre Association Festival, held in Vicksburg, in January and I was so proud to look at all the wonderful talent represented by the students and community in this state. My wish is for all children to have the exposure to the arts that will allow them to grow and shine in their own way. Mississippi is doing great things and I look forward to working with all of you to make it even greater.
