Anna Faye Kelley-Winders, vice president of Community Campus, has retired from Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College after 44 years. Kelley-Winders was honored at the 2013 commencement ceremony as the longest-serving employee of the college, and was honored with a concurrent resolution from the Mississippi Legislature June 21.
A George County native, she was first introduced to MGCCC almost 50 years ago as a student at the Perkinston Campus. She attended Perkinston Junior College from 1964 to 1966 and completed her master of education degree at the University of Southern Mississippi in 1968. She began her career as a business and office technology instructor at the Perkinston Campus in fall 1969. After 18 years in the classroom, she held numerous leadership positions — college-wide self-study director, administrative assistant for academic and general instruction, administrative dean of the George County Center and vice president.
