Dr. Ladd Taylor named VP of MGCCC’s Perkinston campus

PERKINSTON, MS (WLOX) -

Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College alumnus Dr. Ladd Taylor has been named Vice President of MGCCC's Perkinston Campus and George County Center. Taylor has served as interim vice president since January.

Taylor has served many different roles for the college since he started working there in 2002. His most recent role was dean of Athletics. MGCCC President Dr. Mary S. Graham says Taylor's success in the athletics department has prepared him to make a positive influence on the Perkinston campus and in the community.

"Dr. Taylor will be an exceptional leader for the Perkinston Campus and George County Center. Thanks to his leadership, our athletics program is even stronger, and our athletes are successful in and out of the sports arena," said Graham. "Dr. Taylor is dedicated to the success of every MGCCC student, and he will make a positive difference to everyone at the college and in the community."

Since taking over as dean of Athletics, Taylor has implemented what he calls the I.C.E. theme. He says that I.C.E. stands for integrity, class and enthusiasm and is the foundation for MGCCC's athletic success. MGCCC student athletes have maintained a 98 percent graduation rate over the past three years, which is the highest of Mississippi's community colleges.

"I am extremely honored to serve as the Vice President of the Perkinston Campus and George County Center," said Taylor. "It is a tremendous responsibility, and I am humbled and look forward to continuing the great work that has already been done at these two locations."

    The Pascagoula Panthers open the 2017 football season on the road. In fact, their first three games are road contests. That scheduling quirk may give field turf crews just enough time to get War Memorial Stadium ready for the September 8 home opener. The wet weather in South Mississippi is placing quite the burden on construction workers as they attempt to complete stadium renovations. The project was suppose to be finished before the beginning of Pascagoula's football season.
