Airnecia Mills, a graduating senior who majored in elementary education, and Miss Alcorn 2012-13, was recently selected to receive a $500 scholarship from the Mississippi Professional Educators (MPE). Upon graduation from Alcorn, she said she is planning to teach first grade students at Weddington Elementary School, Greenville Public School District, and pursue her master’s degree in elementary education. 

“I was honored to receive the scholarship, especially because I was the only undergraduate African-American student awarded this year,” Mills said. “I am planning to use the scholarship towards graduate school.”
