Of her contract extension, Vincent-Raymond said, "I am thankful to have the opportunity to continue this journey as a Tiger with some of the best administrators, teachers, support staffs, and competitive students.

"The biggest lesson I have learned over the past 3.5 years in Moss Point is its pride in its history, culture, people, and legacy. As we move into the next 3 years, I look forward to working more with MPSD families, and our community and corporate partners who have helped move the district to where we are now. Combined, we all have to invest in our children to accomplish the goal that we all want for our school district - to improve.

"We are not where we want to be but we are better than we were. We are striving for growth. Moss Point School District can compete with the rest of the districts on the Gulf Coast.

"I’m blessed to be able to work for a board and community who are equally passionate about the youth and the success of our district.

"Friday was day 1 and we have work to do. Whatever it takes isn’t just a slogan, it’s our guiding principle to moving Moss Point forward.
