Dr. Mary S. Graham, president of Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, has been elected to the Mississippi Humanities Council Board for a four-year term. Graham was appointed during the Council’s February board meeting.
“Being selected to serve on the Mississippi Humanities Council is an honor,” Graham said. “The humanities are vital for us all, providing insight into ourselves and other cultures and filling our lives with meaning. I look forward to working with other board members and the staff at MHC to provide opportunities for Mississippians to learn about history, culture and arts.”
The Mississippi Humanities Council is a private nonprofit corporation funded by Congress through the National Endowment for the Humanities to provide public programs in traditional liberal arts disciplines to serve nonprofit groups in Mississippi. The humanities are the study of history, literature, religion, languages, philosophy, and culture.
