“My executive experience leading Biloxi Public Schools, with its $50 Million budget and staff of 600 from 2004-2011, before and after Hurricane Katrina, is my greatest asset.  Difficult decisions were made to effectively manage the school district.  But there were several bright spots and celebrations including the recognition of three schools as National Blue Ribbon Schools and the school district’s first regional accreditation. ”
