Board of Trustees
Northeast Mississippi Community is governed locally by a Board of Trustees which is made up of fifteen members – six members from Prentiss County and two each from Alcorn, Tippah, Tishomingo, and Union counties with one member elected at-large by the Board itself. The member-at-large position is rotated among those four counties.
One representative from each county is the County Superintendent of Education unless, he/she chooses not to serve. All members of the Board except the Superintendents and the member-at-large are appointed for five-year terms by their respective county’s board of supervisors. Terms are staggered to prevent the retirement of more than one member per county in any one year.
