Hazel Watson, District IV, President
I have been a member of Eliza Pillars RN of MS since 1994. I take great pride in serving District IV because this is the district where it all began. Having the pleasure of serving such a distinct group of nurses has enhanced my knowledge and revamped my love of the organization. I am a graduate of Mississippi College with a BSN degree. I presently work at The G.V. “Sonny” Montgomery VA Medical Center in Jackson, MS. I strive to see an increase in membership of the organization and decreasing health disparities among Blacks is near and dear to my heart.
