After President Trump spoke in Southaven earlier this month, a second member of the Trump family will be in Mississippi tomorrow.
Ivanka Trump, an advisor to the President, is set to host an event at the Lynn Meadows Discovery Center in Gulfport on Thursday. In a Facebook post, Governor Bryant said that he’s excited to have Ivanka speak at the event which will focus on issues including early childhood education and workforce training in Mississippi.
Through an emailed statement, Governor Bryant said that the issues that will be discussed are at the top of his priority list.
“Expanding quality early childhood education and preparing the Mississippi workforce for the jobs of tomorrow has been a priority of mine since taking office. Ivanka Trump and I share this priority. Her commitment to helping others has led us to work together on issues spanning from education to criminal justice reform,” Governor Bryant said.
Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith, who has received President Trump’s endorsement ahead of November’s election, will also be in attendance.
“I think it’s great that Ivanka Trump will be in Harrison County to bring attention to issues important to Mississippi children and working families. I am confident we’ll see her commitment to these issues, and have a good discussion about areas where our state is making progress,” Hyde-Smith said.
Governor Bryant also went on to say that his office has been working with Ivanka during this administration to help children and students in Mississippi.
“As we began to tackle early childhood issues, we put a focus on the entire family unit, moving away from individual silos and fragmented systems. This approach has proven effective over the last few years in helping Mississippians succeed in the classroom and the workplace. My office has been working with Ivanka on the well-being and education of young children since President Trump took office. She has strongly supported our efforts since day one, and I am very excited to have her in Mississippi this week to discuss our innovative approach for educating our children in their most formative years,” he said.
The director of the Women’s Bureau of the U.S. Department of Labor Patricia Greene will also join Trump for the event.
