Anyone interested in applying should send 12 copies of their resume and a writing sample to Ed Brunini Jr., chairman of the committee, to P.O. Box 119, Jackson, MS 39205. The deadline for submitting applications is Aug. 17, 2009. Anyone interested in recommending prospective candidates should send their letters of recommendation to Brunini at the same address.
