Taylor Ormon

Director of Career Services

Taylor was born and raised in Auburn, AL. She attended Mississippi State University where she obtained her Bachelor of Business Administration in Marketing. After graduating, she went on to be a Customer Service Representative at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Mississippi, where she gained irreplaceable knowledge of the corporate workplace and grew professionally as a communicator. Over time she began to feel the Lord pushing her into a different career direction.  A short time later she accepted an opportunity to work for Delta Air Lines and traveled the world while being based out of New York City. This was her dream from a very early age, and she was determined to make it happen. However, she quickly learned that this lifestyle was not everything that she had imagined. Taylor knew God had blessed her with a natural ability to interact with many types of personalities and enjoyed working with people, but she wanted to make more of a difference in people’s lives directly. After months of prayer, a door opened for her at Millsaps College serving as the Internship Coordinator in the Center for Career Education. In this position, she was able to use her talents to work on a professional level with students as well as assist in building the internship program.  One of the most rewarding parts of her job was helping students realize their professional potential. She is now looking forward to bringing that energy to Mississippi College. Taylor recently recieved her Master's degree in Higher Education Administration from MC in May of 2020. 

Mississippi College was the perfect opportunity for growth in her professional career. Taylor has a passion for higher education and is beyond thrilled to become a part of this College staff. She is married to Grae Ormon, where they are an active part of the Clinton community and are excited to welcome their first child late May of this year. Taylor truly believes the Lord has given her this opportunity to make a difference and loves being able to play a small role in students success at MC. Go Choctaws!!!

Taylor’s Top 5 strengths are Includer, Positivity, Developer, Communication, and Belief.

But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” - Isaiah 40:31
