1991 (sixth grade)
Mississippi State University, BBA and MBA
I am married to Philip Harris and so lucky to be a stay-at-home mom to Austin (age 6) and Blake (age 4)
I enjoyed working in the accounting/hedge fund industry from 2002-2009 after earning my MBA. The study techniques and foundation of "people" skills I learned at SGIS made my continuing education and career much more successful. Not to sound too cliché', I also know that learning to allow God to "be the difference in my choices" has helped me tremendously, and is something I am instilling in my children as well.
The trips... Land Between the Lakes, Cumberland Caverns, Biloxi, and the "If everyone lit just one little candle" part of the Christmas Program
Through my children…I love having the opportunity to be involved in their classroom to get the chance to know their teachers and friends. In addition, serving on the Parents Association provides a great chance to give back and make wonderful new friends myself.
To understand that while the academic aspect is very important, it is the character that one builds that will help you to succeed most in life.
The biggest compliment I can give to St.George’s and its amazing teachers is that I have entrusted you with my greatest joy, my children. I thank my parents for giving me this opportunity and feel very blessed to be able to do so for my son and daughter as well.
