The East Central Community College Foundation received a grant through the Community Foundation of East Mississippi from the Meridian Jaycee Leadership and Community Development Endowment.  The grant of $1,275 was presented by Christin Waters (center), executive director of the Community Foundation of East Mississippi, to Dr. Stacey Hollingsworth (left), executive director of the ECCC Foundation, and Dr. Marie Roberts, Vice President for Enrollment Management. Funds will be used for the Leadership EC initiative which aims to develop an understanding of personal leadership style and community responsibility using a cohort approach made up of high school students across the College's five county district. Leadership EC programming will develop and grow leadership characteristics in our youth through interaction with our community leaders, college officials, and local workforce and industry partners.
