Mississippi Body Walk

This is an event that is not to be missed. MSU Extension Services presents The OrganWise Guys in The Body Walk. This is a 40 ft by 40 ft enclosed walk through exhibit representing the human body and it’s functions. The students will enter the “body” first through a giant ear where they will learn of the brain waves and the functions of the brain followed by 9 more stations all representing major functions of the body before leaving the “body” through a cut in the skin. Besides the students gaining knowledge of the functions of the body this will also encourage healthy lifestyles as well as good nutritional choices and encourage an increase in physical activity for the benefit of their health. There is a major need for volunteers in order to make this a complete success. We need volunteers for a couple of hours Oct 16, for set up and again for the walk through and breakdown on Oct 17. If you are able to volunteer for any amount of time please contact Cassie Cochran at 601-606-3250 or email All help is needed and appreciated from both men and women.
