Miss Mississippi highlights conference
Emmie Perkins, 2022 Miss Mississippi, highlighted Co-Lin’s “Grit and Grace” women’s conference that was held on Wednesday, May 17, at the Thames Center.
The conference, begun in 2019, brings together area women of all ages, and seeks to provide an inspiring educational and empowering experience for them. This year, the conference theme is “Clothing Yourself in Strength and Dignity.”
Co-Lin calls the annual conference “Grit and Grace” to honor and encourage successful women who have to make tough decisions and overcome obstacles, while maintaining graceful dispositions.
“This special conference is designed to help women develop themselves professionally and find fulfillment in everything they do,” says Co-Lin President Dr. Jane Hulon Sims, who significantly is culminating her successful career at Co-Lin at the end of next month.
“There are absolutely no limits to what women can achieve, especially when they are equipped with the right tools, the right plan and the right attitude. That’s what this conference is all about. Participants will go away with meaningful insights as they learn from others who face the same life situations.”
In addition to the educational aspect of the conference, the event provides an opportunity for participants to network as they enjoy a three-course luncheon prepared by Chef Chris McSweyn, who formerly prepared meals and was a manger/owner at Porches Restaurant, a dining landmark in Wesson for many years.
