Photo Gallery: Vicksburg Cotillion Club presents 45 future leaders

The Vicksburg Cotillion Club was founded in 1987 with the goal of providing skills in etiquette, leadership, community service and exposure to general knowledge for self-improvement.

The symbol for the club is a bell, its flower a sweetheart rose, and the colors are silver, pink and white.

Since its beginnings, the Vicksburg Cotillion Club has held its annual ball the second weekend in December, but due to COVID-19 the board decided to postpone the event to a later date at which time 45 young women will be presented during the black-tie affair.

About Terri Cowart Frazier

Terri Frazier was born in Cleveland. Shortly afterward, the family moved to Vicksburg. She is a part-time reporter at The Vicksburg Post and is the editor of the Vicksburg Living Magazine, which has been awarded First Place by the Mississippi Press Association. She has also been the recipient of a First Place award in the MPA’s Better Newspaper Contest’s editorial division for the “Best Feature Story.”

Terri graduated from Warren Central High School and Mississippi State University where she received a bachelor’s degree in communications with an emphasis in public relations.

“From staying informed with local governmental issues to hearing the stories of its people, a hometown newspaper is vital to a community. I have felt privileged to be part of a dedicated team at The Post throughout my tenure and hope that with theirs and with local support, I will be able to continue to grow and hone in on my skills as I help share the stories in Vicksburg. When asked what I like most about my job, my answer is always ‘the people.’
