Make-A-Wish Mississippi is proud to announce members of the W.I.S.H. Society of South Mississippi.
The W.I.S.H. Society of South Mississippi brings together the community’s most dynamic and inspiring women — women who believe in making a difference — and empowers them to act on that belief in a fulfilling and measurable way.
Nominated for professional success, civic achievements and commitment to philanthropy; 10 inspiring local women are recognized as W.I.S.H. Society of South Mississippi Honoree. Over the course of a two-month campaign, they will make a lasting impact by raising funds to grant the wishes of children in the community.
These outstanding ladies are honored during the W.I.S.H Society of South Mississippi luncheon; an awards presentation to recognize each honoree’s achievements and name the South Mississippi W.I.S.H. Society of South Mississippi Woman of the Year.
Shelley Chennault, W.I.S.H. Society of South Mississippi Chair, commented, “I am truly honored to be chairing the W.I.S.H. Society of South Mississippi event for Make-A-Wish Mississippi. I am thrilled to lead such an amazing group of women who were nominated based on their inspiring contributions personally, professionally and to our community on the Gulf Coast. It is inspiring to see these women so empowered and ready to raise much needed funds to grant wishes for our local children battling critical illnesses.”
