In continuing its efforts to support a healthy Mississippi, the Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi Foundation announced four winners of the 2017 Healthy Hometown Awards Program recently at the Mississippi Municipal League Annual Conference in Biloxi. The City of Moss Point was named “Mississippi’s Healthiest Hometown,” while the cities of Meridian and Hernando and the Town of Mantachie received Healthy Hometown honors. Moss Point, which was previously a Healthy Hometown winner in 2014, will receive a $50,000 grant from the Foundation to support its ongoing wellness initiatives. Meridian, Hernando and Mantachie will each receive $25,000 to further their own wellness efforts. City leaders were on hand to accept the awards from the Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi Foundation Executive Director, Sheila Grogan.
