The Mississippi Senate recently honored longtime educator, Dr. Tommy Davis, President of East Mississippi Community College in Scooba.
A resolution passed by the Senate recognizes Davis for turning the school around when it faced possible closure due to financial problems.
Sen. Sampson Jackson, who represents the area, presented Davis with the resolution.
Jackson said Davis has done an outstanding job.
Davis, who is an alumnus of EMCC, returned to Scooba as president in 1990.
