Education Alumna Jocelyn Tyree
Tyree is grateful to professors and staff at Mercer, "who have been supportive of me from day one," she said. "They always made themselves available to me even out of the classroom. I remember them encouraging me to keep going to reach greater heights." She was particularly gratified to be nominated for Who's Who in American Junior Colleges.
career development was also bolstered by her experience with MCCC administrators
as a work study student and with the staff of the Project S.M.I.L.E./GEAR
UP program at Mercer's James Kerney campus, where she served as a mentor
and secondary education counselor for middle and high school students.
She received S.M.I.L.E.'s Outstanding Middle School Counselor Award in
2006 and 2007. Her ultimate goal is to establish her own in-school counseling
