Alcorn’s Vicksburg Expansion Office converses with local educators

Alcorn’s Vicksburg Expansion Office converses with local educators

Alcorn State University and its Vicksburg Expansion Office were well represented at the Professional Development Day for all employees of the Vicksburg-Warren County School System held on January 3, 2013.

Alcorn’s participation in the day-long session at Warren Central High School was organized by Dr. Cheryl Kariuki, Vicksburg Expansion Office director, and was attended by staff from the Vicksburg Office, School of Business, School of Education and Psychology, Office of Admissions, Office of Graduate Studies, and Educational and Community Partnerships.

The mutually beneficial event gave an opportunity for local educators to find out about Alcorn admission requirements, accelerated programs and other services, many of which are now available to them in Vicksburg. The Alcorn staff listened to the higher education needs of the educators and will use this feedback to strengthen the outreach to the region.
