Meridian native Heather Richardson Woodall is the new senior coordinator in Mississippi State University-Meridian’s Career Center. A 2008 West Lauderdale High School graduate, she is working from a downtown office in the Newberry Building, but also keeps office hours at the College Park campus off Highway 19 North.
Woodall is helping prepare students for the job-search process, including resume development, mock interviews and cover letters, among other areas. She also is working with regional employers to identify their needs for interns, cooperative education participants and part-time student workers, as well as opportunities for MSU graduates and alumni.
Woodall holds a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology and a master’s in food science, nutrition and health promotion, both from MSU. She previously worked on the Starkville campus at the Longest Student Health Center, as well as at Meridian’s Jeff Anderson Regional Medical Center and, most recently, as a teacher at Russell Christian Academy.
