State government leader discusses state’s history, tours new school facilities
Baldwyn Schools continues to strive to meet the needs of students today and plan for the future of student education. Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann shares the idea of planning and dreaming for the future.
On Thursday, Hosemann visited with Baldwyn High School students to share the history of Mississippi in a Bicentennial Celebration and to encourage students to dream and plan for the future development of Mississippi.
Hosemann also challenged students to participate in a 500 word essay/art contest detailing their future ideas of Mississippi. The contest is part of the Bicentennial Celebration in which a winning student from each governing district will win $100 cash and $100 for their school along with traveling to Jackson to tour the capitol.
“History is important in knowing where we come from here in Mississippi so we can continue to grow and develop as a state,” Hosemann shared with students.
“I challenge you to think about where you want Mississippi to be in 25 or more years. Think about what we need to keep being successful.”
Hosemann also toured the new Baldwyn Career Advancement Center classrooms and spoke with curriculum instructors.
“The collaboration and partnerships with industry, businesses, and other school districts is exactly what we need to provide the best opportunties for our students,” Hosemann noted.
Other legislative officials on site for the visit included Senator Chad McMahan and Representative Tracy Arnold.
