Second VP candidate visits USM Gulf Coast


LONG BEACH, MS (WLOX) - The second of three candidates for Vice President of Southern Miss Gulf Coast visited the Long Beach campus Tuesday.

Dr. Frances Lucus is the outgoing president of Millsaps College. She attended a lunch meeting with students in Long Beach to trade ideas on the job and the campus.

We asked Dr. Lucus what she feels she would bring to USM Gulf Coast.

"I think I would bring 31 years of experience in higher education leadership to help with the visioning, the planning, the funding, and just overall leadership of this institution. I would like to bring a lot of entrepreneurial and creative spirit," Lucas said.

The person chosen will become a member of the USM President's Executive Cabinet, and have a say in all decisions concerning the university. The third finalist will visit the coast on Wednesday.
