Olympic gold medalist Bianca Knight visits CMMC | Community Spirit
Ridgeland native and Olympic gold medalist Bianca Knight recently visited Central Mississippi Medical Center.
Knight's mother, Annie Knight, works in the ICU at CMMC, according to the hospital.
Charlotte Dupré, CMMC’s Chief Executive Officer, called Bianca’s visit “a special day in the history for Central Mississippi Medical Center.”
“While watching the Olympic Games, I felt extremely proud of both Bianca and Annie,” Dupré said. “I know of the sacrifices Annie has made for her daughter and the support she has given her every step of the way. She was there for Bianca in London and during the Olympic trials, but also during almost every meet since she began competing at the age of 12. We know our employees are world-class and this exemplary mother and daughter team back up this statement.”
CMMC’s entire administrative staff turned out to greet Bianca as she entered the hospital celebration in her honor. She received a gift bag containing hospital shirts, mugs and other keepsakes.
