  • Riding the Wind

    In 1979, a young woman sits down in a comfy rocking chair next to her grandfather for their usual conversation time. After hearing his same stories more than a hundred times before, she knows they will then walk together in the woods on the land where her family has lived since 1913. 
     This time is different, though, for in her hands she carries a small cassette tape recorder to tape the old, but still refreshing, memories of her beloved grandfather.

  • Vines of the World

    During the last 36 years of service to the community, South Mississippi Children’s Center (SMCC) has served as a safe haven for many children.

    “Jenna, who was 15 or 16 at the time, was brought to us because her mom didn’t want her anymore,” said SMCC Director Annie Jackson. “She didn’t have any friends or other family she could stay with; she had nowhere to go. Jenna wasn’t in school and had no skills, but above all that she had no one to believe in her, so that’s what we did.”
