JCJC welcomes new administrator

ELLISVILLE, MS. (WDAM) - Jones County Junior College is welcoming a New Vice President of Instructional Affairs.

Dr. Laverne Ulmer is a 25-year veteran of the college.

She has had various roles at JCJC during her tenure. They include experience in the classroom and working with JCJC's faculty, staff and administration. Specifically, she worked as the Chair of the Academic Business Division and served the SACS liaison for the college, making sure standards were adhered to.

Ulmer is also a graduate of Jones County Junior College and a native of Wayne County, where she lives with her family.

"We have a new liberal arts building coming up. It'll have state of the art classrooms. I think one of the things that I look forward to most is us being able to provide our faculty with state of the art equipment, classrooms, the teaching tools that they need to really engage our students," said Ulmer.

Ulmer is taking over the position from Jim Kelly, who is returning to the classroom and concentrating on other projects.
