MSMS To Focus on Tallahatchie and Holmes Counties

Dear Friends of MSMS,

As we know, we are are continuing to push to reach academically-talented students who are economically disadvantaged, and those from under-performing schools, with information about MSMS and get them into our summer camp when they are rising 7th and 8th graders. 

As a result of our work last month, we have identified at least three more new sponsors. During December, we will concentrate on finding sponsors for students in Holmes and Tallahatchie counties. If you have contacts in either of those counties, please let me know as soon as possible.

We are looking for businesses, organizations, or individuals who may be interested in providing financial assistance to enable students from their areas to participate in the MSMS Summer Enrichment Camps. We would also welcome the opportunity to speak to any civic or service club about both MSMS and our summer camps.

If you can help us identify organizations or individuals we should contact, please email me at
