Russell joins PRCC Board of Trustees
Russell joins PRCC Board of Trustees

The newest member of the Pearl River Community College Board of Trustees attended his first meeting Thursday. Will Russell serves on the board by virtue of his position as superintendent of education in Jefferson Davis County. He was elected last month in a special election. “I look forward to serving in a positive manner,” Russell said. “I'm very impressed with the campus and where the college stands. Pearl River has always had a rich tradition which I'm proud to be a part of.” 

Russell came to PRCC on a football scholarship in 1988. Before graduating, he was named to play in the state all-star game. He transferred to the University of Tulsa where he was named the Ultimate Student Athlete in 1991 and later inducted into the university's Football Hall of Fame. Returning to Mississippi, Russell earned the master's degree in special services at William Carey University and the master's in educational leadership from the University of Southern Mississippi. He also has completed the National Institute for School Leaders through the University of Mississippi.
Russell taught health, physical education and special services for 10 years in Marion County before serving two years as principal of Bassfield High School. He then was named principal of East Marion Middle School and served four years as assistant superintendent in Marion County.He was recruited to Hazlehurst as high school prinicipal under a school improvement grant and recorded significant improvements. 

Following the resignation of Jefferson Davis superintendent Ike Haynes in May and the appointment of John Daley as interim superintendent, Russell took over for Daley as Bassfield principal. Russell defeated Daley in the special election to succeed Haynes. He and his wife are the parents of two sons.

Future Educators Association Hosts Book Drive

Students enrolled in Teacher Academy, a new program at JDC Career Center, along with its student-led organization, Future Educators Association (FEA), are participating in a state-wide Service Learning Project this school year.    This project will help strengthen the local literacy programs.  Mrs. Lila Broom, Teacher Academy Instructor and FEA advisor, and her students have chosen to conduct a book drive.  
 
Books will be collected through donations and distributed to the districts local schools.  Mr. John Daley, Interim Superintendent, was kind enough to kick off the campaign by presenting Mrs. Broom with her first donation of books.  Daley thanked Mrs. Broom and her students for their time and efforts with this literacy project.  The Career Center will continue to take book donations for the month of October.  Any new or used book in good condition will be greatly appreciated.   Daley supports the Teacher Academy program’s efforts realizing the great benefit it will be to the students of Jefferson Davis County School District.
