Pierce is teaching American National Government in the Division of Social Sciences on Thursday evenings.  JCJC President Dr. Jesse Smith believes students will gain valuable insight from Pierce's government course. 
 
"We are honored that Justice Pierce will bring his wealth of knowledge to our students. The students who are fortunate enough to get into his class will receive a world-class education.

As a legislator, he served as Chairman of the House Education Committee and on the Appropriations Subcommittee for Public Education. After leaving the legislature, he was appointed a judge of the Mississippi 16th Chancery District by Gov. Haley Barbour.

In November 2008, Pierce was elected Supreme Court Justice for Place 2 in the Southern District, which covers 27 South Mississippi counties.  His current term ends in 2016.
