She has been an integral part of our school district's special education department for many years, serving as a teacher, post secondary transition coordinator and district case manager. She dedicated countless hours to helping students receive the services they need, helping teachers provide the best services and in making sure our school district remained in compliance with timelines, procedures and law.

PRCSD held the Superintendent’s Awards to recognize employees and parents for the 2023-2024 school year. Parent, Teacher, Support Staff, Grant Writer, Coach, Director, and Administrator of the Year for each school and the district were honored. We also recognized 11 amazing employees that are retiring this year. Collectively they have 345 total years in education, with most of those in the Pearl River County School District! We are thankful for the time and dedication that all of our recipients have put in to help the students at PRC! A special thank you to PRCHS Sounds for the special entertainment they provided for the evening.


Congratulations to Mrs. Shawn Dennis for being selected as our PRC Grant Writer of the Year for the 2023-2024 school year! Mrs. Dennis wrote and received a grant for the entire 1st Grade Team. The grant was titled Mad About Science - Building A Strong Foundation Through STEAM. This $15,000 grant allowed the 1st Grade Team to purchase 10 carts with steam materials (one for each 1st grade classroom). The money was also used to purchase a grade level science cart with science experiment materials, science lesson resources, and several different robots for coding lessons. Thank you, Mrs. Dennis, for going the extra mile for our school and students!!
