Suzanne Hirsch | Mapping a Modern MS

Saturday, August 27, 2016

Suzanne Hirsch prides herself on the opportunities that the Mississippi School of the Arts in Brookhaven, Mississippi provides for 11th and 12th grade students across the state. As the Executive Director of MSA, Suzanne can directly see the impact a strong arts education has on the students, as well as the state of Mississippi. The school offers six areas of study: visual arts, theatre, vocal arts, dance, literary arts, and media arts.

“When you watch that, you know that their spirit, their citizenship is going to be what we need as taxpayers, as residents of our state, and I think that the future of Mississippi is going to be very bright because of these young people coming through. It makes me feel really confident in the future of what could be for our students because they’re leaving here very prepared and ready to go.”-Suzanne
