Emmie Perkins | Miss Mississippi
My next guest needs no introduction… Just say, “Miss Mississippi 2022,” and the name Emmie Perkins should ring a bell or two! By using the healing power of music to make a change in the world around her, Emmie has successfully taken her “Music is Medicine” platform to new heights, with her historic win as the first Miss Mississippi to receive the competition’s Social Impact award this past December. A proud student at Mississippi State University, and a native of Hattiesburg, she is here to discuss her passion for educating children through music, growing up Mississippi and what the future holds for her as a musician, mentor, and motivator… I’d like to welcome to the show, Miss Mississippi 2022, Emmie Perkins!Marshall Ramsey, a nationally recognized, Emmy award winning editorial cartoonist, shares his cartoons and travels the state as Mississippi Today’s Editor-At-Large.
