UM recognizes Holloway
The University of Mississippi Department of Political Science has named former Biloxi mayor A.J. Holloway as recipient of its 2012 Distinguished Alumni Award. Using money from private donors, the university also has established the A.J. Holloway Fund to provide academic and research support for the department.
Holloway has served as mayor of Biloxi for nearly 20 years. A Biloxi native, Holloway graduated from Ole Miss in 1963 with a B.A. in education. During his time at the university, Holloway played for the 1960 football team, which was named national champions by the Football Writers Association of America. He competed in two Sugar Bowls and a Cotton Bowl.
After graduation, Holloway moved to Columbus to teach. After two years, he moved back to Biloxi and served as business manager for the public school system. He also served on the Mississippi Tax Commission before being elected mayor of Biloxi in 1993.
