HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The following is a news release from The University of Southern Mississippi

The annual “Lighting the Way” event returns Wednesday, Nov. 30 to The University of Southern Mississippi to help usher in the holiday season and support the charitable outreach work of Hattiesburg’s Aldersgate Mission and Edwards Street Fellowship Center. Scheduled for 6-8 p.m. at the front entrance of the Hattiesburg campus, it will be presented by the Student Government Association, and members of the university and local communities are invited to participate.
