State Auditor Pickering teaches at WCU

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Some students at William Carey University are getting a unique perspective on how government works from a state official who's taken on a temporary role as college professor. The students are benefiting from the experience of state auditor Stacey Pickering.

He's teaching a government course this semester as an adjunct professor. The focus of the course is how government works and how it impacts our lives.

Pickering is teaching the course one night a week.
