Empower Mississippi President Grant Callen announced today the launching of our Community Outreach Division.
This division will be headed up by two Community Outreach Coordinators who will be on the ground in strategic communities around the state. These team members will partner with parents to help support them in advocating for education choice.
As Empower continues our push to expand school choice in Mississippi, these new community outreach coordinators will recruit, educate, and train parents as Ambassadors for Choice and showcase the demand for school choice in the Magnolia State.
Constance White will spearhead our grassroots effort in the Jackson area and the Delta. Constance previously worked for Black Alliance for Educational Options (BAEO), where she helped educate citizens on the positive impact of charter schools.
Anna Beth Houston will oversee our grassroots effort on the Coast. Anna Beth recently graduated from Mississippi College and interned for Empower Mississippi in 2015. She served as a policy intern with the Mississippi Legislative Conservative Coalition during the past two legislative sessions.
“Parents have been ignored for far too long,” Callen said. “This new division will amplify and organize the voices of parents who know their children deserve better education options, but feel powerless to take that message to the policymakers. I am excited to have Constance and Anna Beth join the Empower Team to head up this project.”
