PRCC’s Clark graduates from leadership academy

Terri Clark                HATTIESBURG – Terri Clark, director of adult education at Pearl River Community College, is one of the graduates of the first National Career Pathways Network (NCPN)  Leadership Development Academy (LDA).
            The graduates were honored Oct. 30 in Dallas, Texas, at the National Career Pathways Network Conference.
            The NCPN LDA’s mission is to provide professional, career and leadership development to career pathways leaders (career pathways coordinators, CTE directors, occupational deans, workforce development personnel, school counselors, and college advisors) to assist them in being a valuable contributor to the broader goals of their institutions, communities, and the stakeholders they serve.
            Clark was one of 24 individuals from around the country and Canada selected to participate in this prestigious leadership development academy. Members of the LDA were not only exposed to some of the country’s top leadership professionals through the impressive class schedule, but they were immersed with fellow classmates in learning activities focused on building and sustaining career pathways systems.
            Clark has been adult education/GED counselor at PRCC since October 2009 and was named director in 2015. She taught psychology as an adjunct instructor at PRCC and was a counselor with the Forrest County school system from 2005-2009.
            She holds the bachelor’s degree in family and consumer science from the University of Southern Mississippi and the master’s degree in counseling from William Carey University. She is a member of several professional associations and participated in the Area Development Partnership’s 2005 Leadership for a New Century program.
