In this week’s Mississippi Stories, Mississippi Today Editor-At-Large Marshall Ramsey sits down with Rhea Williams-Bishop, Director of Mississippi and New Orleans programs for the W.K. Kellogg Foundation (WKKF). A lifelong Mississippian raised in Carthage and educated at Jackson State University, Williams-Bishop has always had her foot in the philanthropic and public service worlds. Five years ago, she was named to her current post. Williams-Bishop talks about the WKKF’s mission (founded in 1930, the WKKF has been a big part of Mississippi since 1940 and expanded its efforts in the late 2000s) and what the future holds. Will Keith Kellogg believed that children should have equal opportunity to thrive. Williams-Bishop explains how the WKKF empowers Mississippians to do just that by supporting dialogue, developing leaders, investing in the community and advocating for a better Mississippi.
