Terrance Williams and Christin King Join the MC Admissions Team
Terrance Williams seems to have done it all as a Mississippi College undergraduate.
The founder of the Decerto Men’s Service Club, chapel greeter, assistant at residence halls, and former Miss MC host, TJ is enjoying his new role on the Clinton campus.
A former student orientation leader, Williams is busy working as an admissions counselor at the Christian university. The job seems to be a perfect fit for the May 2019 Mississippi College graduate.
A Gulfport native and 2015 West Harrison High graduate, Williams brings strong Mississippi Gulf Coast connections. His ability to preach the benefits of joining the 194-year-old Blue & Gold family is off the charts. He loves to laugh, reach out to bless other people and recruit prospective MC Choctaws.
“My favorite thing about MC is definitely the many time honored traditions we have and the way so much community is built around those traditions,” Terrance says. “My favorite tradition is definitely the Follies!”
Williams, 22, also firmly believes in the benefits of advancing his education and learning new skills. He is enrolled in the university’s higher education administration program.
What does TJ have in mind down the road?
Earning his master’s in the field, then pursuing his doctorate. “One day in the future, I want to serve as the president of a university,” the Mississippian says.
In a recent Facebook post, announcing his new job with Mississippi College’s admissions team, Terrance Williams supplied the credit to God. “To God be the glory, great things He has done!.”
Williams went to work on the admissions team in early January. On the same day, MC graduate Christin King started as a transfer admissions counselor at her alma mater.
Both grads are excited to be employed at America’s second oldest Baptist college.
MC leaders are delighted to welcome the pair aboard in early 2020.
“We are thrilled to have TJ and Christin join our team as the newest representatives for MC,” says admissions director Kyle Brantley. “They both exemplify our mission and values. Their efforts will help bring in many generations of MC students to come.”
Michael Wright, director of freshman recruitment, agrees. “Christin and TJ are incredible fits to the MC family.”
Christin was active at MC after graduating from Copiah-Lincoln Community College. A member of the Laguna Social Tribe, King served as a student worker with MC’s Choctawk. It is a valuable resource for high school students searching for a college. The Magee resident earned her bachelor’s degree in kinesiology from MC in December 2018. King seeks a master’s in athletic administration at Mississippi College.
