Ensuring that Mississippi’s educational system stays strong


In recent days, MASS has welcomed new board members and installed new officers for the coming year. It goes without saying that they are taking on new roles and responsibilities during one of the most challenging times in history for public schools.

School districts in Mississippi were already grappling with a variety of challenges before the pandemic, such as teacher shortages and funding issues. As communities continue to debate how to safely reopen schools in the fall, decisive leadership has never been more critical — and MASS is prepared to be a helpful resource, thanks to the commitment of our board of directors.

MASS directors are veteran leaders who have devoted their careers to improving public education. They bring a diversity of experiences in teaching, teambuilding and problem solving. They are eager to put their skills and strengths to work for MASS as we focus on ensuring that all students in Mississippi receive a world-class education.
