This year, 28 women will take a week out of their lives to serve as Miss Mississippi Pageant hostesses.
These women play a vital role in the day-to-day activities of the pageant. They provide assistance to the pageant contestants with any needs they may be required, and also serve as chauffeurs to the women by transporting them to and from any and all required activities.
And because cellphones are confiscated from the girls each morning before all activities begin, the hostesses are a contestant’s only source to the outside world. Days can be long for a hostess, but many return each year.
Louise Hall and Ann Morris, who are both long-time Miss Mississippi Pageant hostesses, have the honor of serving as hostess emeriti.
The Miss Mississippi Pageant works like a well-oiled machine and it is due in part to the dedication of the women who serve as Miss Mississippi Pageant hostesses.
