2019 NAACP Mother of the Year
With Mother’s Day right around the corner, the Gulfport NAACP celebrated a few local mothers.
Mrs. Denise Bush of the First Missionary Baptist Church in Gulfport won this year’s Mother of the Year award. Local churches in the Gulfport area each nominate one mother to be their candidate and support her by raising money.
The Mother of the Year will also represent the NAACP at events throughout the year. Gulfport NAACP Executive Board Member Tnathan Fairley said, “We need to support women in general. That is what we, this event is set up to do, to acknowledge and support women that have from suffrage to everything that we’ve gone through and they’ve been there for us all the time.”
