HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Two ceremonies were held for newly appointed state Supreme Court Justice Dawn Beam on Monday. The first ceremony was held in Gulfport and the second in Hattiesburg at the Southern Miss campus. Justice Beam is the fourth woman to serve on the Mississippi Supreme Court and spoke to WDAM about the honor.

"It is so exciting to share this experience with friends and family that I know and love" Beam said. 

Beam also added that she "looks forward to making Mississippi better for all of us".

Gov. Phil Bryant appointed Justice Beam in February and was the key note speaker at the event in USM.
