How to Transform Southern Comfort Food to Healthy Fare 

Sunny summer weather can inspire luscious but light dishes, and it’s a perfect time to try out healthier takes on classic southern foods. Southern Mississippi is known for decadent dishes such as bread pudding, biscuits and gravy, and on the coast, gumbo. Happily, there are ways to lighten up even the most indulgent dishes.

Find the Perfect Fit

Today, however, Mississippi High School Activities Association recognizes 16 different sports and 4 different activities. What does this mean for students in Mississippi? With more sports being offered, Mississippi has more student-athletes than ever before.
