Mississippi College SGA President Aaron Feazelle Recognized at the Capitol
Honors keep coming for Mississippi College Student Government Association President Aaron Feazelle.
An MC senior, Feazelle was recently honored at the Superdome in New Orleans for his selection to the 2019 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team. An MC Choctaws quarterback, Aaron is the first MC student-athlete named to the Good Works Team.
Aaron’s stellar work as a business administration major and participation in many community service projects helped the Diamondhead resident gain this prestigious honor. In February, Aaron will be among dozens of Mississippi students from institutions statewide recognized at the Capitol.
Feazelle, 21, will be saluted at the 34th annual Higher Education Appreciation Day- Working for Academic Excellence program better known as HEADWAE.
The program honors outstanding students and faculty from institutions with the Mississippi Association of Colleges and University. Events at the state Capitol will be followed by an awards luncheon in Jackson.
“It is always a tremendous honor to represent MC in any setting,” Feazelle said. “I have been blessed to be put in the position I’m in here. I am so grateful for all the support from friends, family, faculty, staff and the administration.”
HEADWAE is supported by the Mississippi Legislature. The event is coordinated by the Mississippi Institutions of Higher Learning’s Office of Academic and Student Affairs as well as the Mississippi Community College Board.
What’s next for Feazelle?
The Gulf Coast resident plans to attend graduate school – either to pursue an MBA or a master’s in sports administration/administration.
As SGA president, Aaron launched an initiative at Mississippi College to partner with the Big Brothers and Big Sisters program in Mississippi. As an MC junior, he joined clean-up efforts in Panama City, Florida after the city received major damages from Hurricane Michael. In addition, he’s put together bags of food for less fortunate families in the Clinton community.
Also being honored at the HEADWAE program will be MC’s 2019 Distinguished Professor of the Year, John Anderson.
A professor at the MC School of Law in Jackson, Anderson is thrilled to be honored and represent the Christian university.
Serving as the guest speaker at the university’s Fall commencement in December, Anderson feels blessed to work at America’s 2nd oldest Baptist college.
“I am always grateful for the opportunity to help prepare our wonderful MC Law students for their future roles as servants of the law and as leaders of this great state."
Anderson’s expertise stretches from constitutional law to international human rights. He’s just as knowledgeable teaching students about insider trading law, white collar crime and contracts at MC Law.
