President accepts NMEC endowment donation

Dr. Gary Lee Spears, president of Northwest Mississippi Community College, right, recently accepted a grant in the amount of $10,000 from Dr. C. L. Stevenson, co-director of the North Mississippi Education Consortium (NMEC), left.  This grant will be added to the NMEC Scholarship Endowment which has already been established with the Northwest Foundation. “NMEC has been providing annual grants to Northwest since 2007, all of which have been used to provide scholarships to prospective Mississippi teachers. Our college and foundation are extremely grateful for this support of our students who have chosen Education as their career pathway,” Spears said. According to the NMEC website, The North Mississippi Education Consortium is a partnership among 44 North Mississippi public school districts, three community colleges, and the University of Mississippi School of Education whose purpose is to provide a means whereby participating members can assure quality educational programs through cooperative efforts and shared resources, for the benefit of students and communities being served.
