William Carey News
The Hattiesburg Campus of William Carey University has a new mailing address. The address is now:
710 William Carey Parkway
Hattiesburg, MS 39401
The actual location of the campus has not changed, only the mailing address. Faculty and staff should update records to replace the old Tuscan Avenue address with this new address.
Carey Dinner Theatre (CDT) will continue in the summer of 2017 despite the fact that the Tatum Theatre was heavily damaged and its support facilities totally destroyed in a tornado on Jan. 21.
The first step in continuing its rich tradition is the selection of performers and other personnel. Auditions for cast and interviews for crew for CDT’s 42nd season are Saturday, April 8 beginning at 10 a.m. in the College of Osteopathic Medicine, Room 112, on the Hattiesburg campus of William Carey University.
William Carey University student Jacob Malone is the 2017 recipient of the Michael Iler Memorial Music Scholarship. Malone is a sophomore music education major from Wilmer, Alabama. The Iler Scholarship is given on an annual basis to a worthy instrumental music student. The recipient is selected by the coordinator of instrumental activities and the other instrumental professors. The Iler Scholarship was established in memory of Carey student Michael Iler of Vancleave who died in March 2014 as a result of injuries sustained in a car accident caused by an alleged drunk driver.
The William Carey University School of Education has received a grant to provide training for teachers in several coastal school districts.
WCU received the $97,139 Improving Teacher Quality grant under Title II of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. This is the third year Carey has received a grant through the program, and the second consecutive year the grant has been based on WCU’s Tradition campus.
