See who was chosen as the next Biloxian Made Good

Most people salute as Biloxians Made Good leave the city and don’t return until retirement, but this year’s honoree chose to move back at the height of her career.

Angela Guice will take the spotlight Nov. 9 at the Slavonian Lodge, 159 Maple Ave., Biloxi, for the 34th annual Biloxian Made Good. Presented by the Biloxi Bay Chamber, the meet and greet begins at 5:30 p.m. and the dinner and program are from 6 to 9 p.m.

Guice is used to the spotlight. In 2000, she moved to Los Angeles, and in 2006 formed her own production company, NuContext. She has worked with major Hollywood stars and for the top television network. She recently moved back to Biloxi with her husband, Mikael Tyrsen, and has joined her father, Reed Guice, in the advertising and public relations firm Guice & Guice.

She still has many friends in South Mississippi, where she graduated from Mercy Cross High School and studied television and film at University of Southern Mississippi.

She joins the ranks of Biloxians Made Good such as Apollo 13 astronaut Fred Haise and last year’s honoree, Mickey Bradley, a rules judge for the PGA Tour.

Tickets are $30 per person or $300 for reserved table of 10. Call 228-435-6149 or email info@biloxibayareachamber.org for a reservation.
