Corinne Fox, the first female masters graduate from Ole Miss, retires
City of Jackson planning director Corinne Fox has retired. Deputy director Bonnie Hopkins has taken over as director.
Fox has been at the forefront of planning efforts in Jackson for much of her 45-plus-year career. She is credited with developing a “groundbreaking” comprehensive plan for the city in 1996 and writing a downtown strategic plan that now guides $2 billion in investments.
Fox was the first woman to graduate from the University of Mississippi’s master’s degree program in urban and regional planning in 1969 and established the state’s first female-owned planning firm.
