Mississippi College | Beacon Magazine

Spring 2013

This issue of the Beacon focuses on some notable “firsts” and on the Mississippi College alumni and faculty members who have achieved them. These “firsts” cover many areas, from the first art program of its kind in Mississippi to the state’s first female federal district court judge, from an internship program that offers new opportunities to the developmentally disabled to scientists who’ve been the first to make important discoveries in their fields.
