Today was Dr. Royce’s last day here at Mississippi College. We are incredibly thankful for the past 16 years of service the Royces have given to this great university. Even though they may be leaving, their legacy will live on forever. #TheRoyceYears
FacesofMC.10 - “I was saved at about age 10 and for the next couple years I didn't pursue that relationship and I regret that now. Those lost years are definitely a burden for me but I have moved on from that. It was tough, I was not the most popular kid and didn't have a lot of friends, but I finally realized one day that I am not alone. Christ is always with me.” - Chance #facesofmisscollege
Today we welcomed Dr. Blake Thompson as the 20th President of Mississippi College. He will begin here on July 1st. He and his wife Jana have three beautiful children: Grey, Sarah Blake, and Cate. Welcome back to Mississippi and welcome to the Choctaw family!

FacesofMC.09 - “My parents divorce made me feel like it was our fault. Our parents fought harshly all the time. I have a pretty good relationship with both of them but they cannot see each other. They are doing their best for all of us and trying to put what happened in the past. I can see they both have learned from their past mistakes and are trying to do better.” - Christian #facesofmisscollege
Tonight Sam Mooney, Chance Pena, and Jordy Searcy lit up the stage and performed for our students. Thank you Choctaw Fest 2018 for giving our students an amazing show and a night they will never forget.
FacesofMC.08 - “I had the best of both worlds. I grew up in a urban area then moved to the suburbs and went to private school. I want to go into politics to help those who feel the racial divide and make people who don’t really understand it, get it.” -Jaylon #facesofmisscollege
