“During the early years she provided administrative and clerical support to the commission. She coordinated commissioners travel and insurance bonds and performed all other support work for the commission,” Pugh said. “Following the retirement of her predecessor, she served as the assistant to the executive director Lynn Possey. She is eligible to retire and has taken the steps to do so. Therefore at this meeting on November 16, the commission voted to honor her service to Mississippi. She has devoted her time and resources and we present this in recognition of her service.”
