Whitney Holliday, SMA president, said the group will be meeting with prominent Mississippi natives that will help them network for the future.
“We will meet with the Mississippi delegation and Mississippi congressmen, along with MSU lobbyists and military leaders,” Holliday said. “We will also be hosting a reception for MSU alumni, so the students on the trip can meet people in the area and network for the future.”
