“Joshlyn is excited to serve as JDC Little Miss Hospitality so that she can be a positive role model for other little girls all across the county,” said Willetta Sylvas.

The Mississippi Miss Hospitality program added the Little Miss element in 2018. The Little Miss Program is designed for Miss Hospitality contestants to serve as mentors to young girls in their communities. Local Little Miss Hospitality representatives will perform during state competition in July and be recognized during the program’s livestream and in the program book.

The primary role of Little Misses will be to support and attend events in their hometown and receive mentoring by their Miss Hospitality “big sister.”
