Butterfly Project encourages girls to find purpose
A local non-profit group whose mission is to empower Tunica-area youth is seeking assistance from town and county government to secure a location for its cause.
According to Zenobia Jackson, program director for the Butterfly Project, the newly-founded program is hoping to find a permanent location to facilitate its meetings for area youth.
Jackson took her cause to the Town of Tunica Board of Aldermen earlier this month to seek support from town leaders.
“We really need more space to meet,” said Jackson, a 6th grade language arts and reading teacher from Tunica Middle School, who established the program in January. “That’s what we are asking for – some help from the town for a place to meet.
