The Mississippi School of the Arts (MSA) recently received a $10,000.00 grant from Georgia Pacific to help better prepare its students from across Mississippi to be productive citizens in society through Junior and Senior Seminar classes. The support received from Georgia Pacific will allow MSA to continue and expand this valuable program.
Jessica Breazeale, Public Affairs Manager for Georgia Pacific said, “We believe that self-reliance and economic fortitude are indispensable components of vibrant communities. The purpose of the Georgia-Pacific Foundation is to help create and fund those programs and initiatives that add value to, and measurably improve, the quality of life within the communities where Georgia-Pacific employees live and work. We applaud your efforts in promoting artistic culture in this community and in teaching art education – and we look forward to working in partnership with you throughout the year.
Suzanne Hirsch, MSA’s Executive Director added, “The life skills classes and career readiness training will be invaluable to these students to utilize in their futures and will increase their capability to contribute to society in a meaningful way.”
