Mississippi First does not have the authority to appoint members to any education-related boards in Mississippi and can only make recommendations to the people responsible for nominating. Depending on the urgency of the board vacancy and staff time, there could be a delay in Mississippi First following up with interested candidates. Please know all questionnaires will be reviewed and vetted in an ongoing manner and Mississippi First staff will reach out if there are any additional questions. Mississippi First does not guarantee board positions nor is submission of an application to the Board Book considered an acceptance of the candidate. Some applicants may not be accepted to the Board Book.
