FORREST COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - A former student at Pearl River Community College who served for the last two years as assistant Vice President for Forrest County operations is now the head of that campus in Hattiesburg.
Jana Causey took over July 1. She replaced Cecil Burt, who retired June 30 after 43 years at PRCC.
Causey, a Petal native and 1999 graduate of the college, had worked at PRCC's Forrest County Center for 10 years as a biology instructor and science coordinator before taking on the job as assistant vice president.
"I'm very excited and honored to have the opportunity to serve the college in this capacity and we've hit the ground running," said Causey. "We're getting ready for students to start in August, so I'm excited for that to happen and we're just getting ready to go,"
Causey received her undergraduate, graduate and doctoral degrees from The University of Southern Mississippi.
