Currie honored at appreciation luncheon

Supporters of Mississippi State Hospital and Hudspeth Regional Center recently hosted an appreciation luncheon for the state’s legislators at Galloway United Methodist Church in Jackson.

Rep. Becky Currie, District 91, Copiah, Franklin and Lincoln Counties, was one of the attendees.

The legislative appreciation event is an annual program hosted by Friends of MSH and Friends of Hudspeth Center.

The volunteer organizations are dedicated to raising funds and awareness for their respective programs and those Mississippians served through them.

Employees, volunteers, advocates and other members of the Friends groups hosted the event in order to thank lawmakers for their work in the legislature and for their continued support of the Mississippi Department of Mental Health.
