Dr. Randy D. McCoy has transitioned from vice chairman to chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Public Employees’ Retirement System of Mississippi (PERS) for fiscal year 2017, which began July 1.

The Board elected State Treasurer Lynn Fitch as its new vice chairman.

McCoy is a retired superintendent of the Tupelo Public School District and a board retiree representative. He previously served as board vice chairman for the 2016 fiscal year. At the Board’s June 28 meeting, McCoy became chairman for fiscal year 2017, succeeding Lee County’s Chancery Clerk Bill Benson.

The chairman presides at board meetings, appoints members of board committees, and can call special meetings. The vice chairman transitions to chairman after a year and serves as chairman when the current chairman is absent.
