MERIDIAN — Local businesswoman Jamie Cater, center, on Tuesday participated in her first meeting as a recently-appointed member of the Meridian Community College Board of Trustees. Cater is flanked at left by her fellow trustees Alex Weddington and Board Chairman Tommy Dulaney and at right by trustees Dr. Ronnye Purvis and John Johnson. Cater is an alumna of MCC, an inductee in the college’s Hall of Fame, and a longtime member of the MCC

Foundation board of directors. She was appointed to her new post last week by Meridian Mayor Percy Bland and confirmed by the City Council. “I am excited to have the opportunity to serve on the Board,” Cater said. “I believe that the future prosperity of our community is strongly linked with the mission of MCC, especially when it comes to the development of a well-trained workforce.” Cater becomes the first female to serve on the college’s board since the retirement of Joyce Frank in 2002.
