Paul Breazeale of Jackson was elected president of the Hinds Community College Board of Trustees by his fellow trustees in a Dec. 2 meeting.

Breazeale replaces Dr. Lynn Weathersby, who leaves the board after 16 years of service. Weathersby is retiring as superintendent for the Rankin County school district. Dale Sullivan has been elected as vice president of the board.

Breazeale, a native of Neshoba County, attended East Central Community College and has bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Mississippi State University.  He has been a Hinds trustee since June 2004. A certified public accountant, Breazeale served an eight-year term on the Mississippi Board for Community and Junior Colleges and was chairman for two years. He is a member of the Mississippi Ethics Commission.

“I look forward to working with Hinds President Dr. Clyde Muse and the other trustees in ensuring that our students are provided the very best educational opportunities.  More specifically, and to better serve our community, I am especially interested in enhancing our workforce development and job training efforts,” Breazeale said.

Sullivan of Wesson is currently deputy director of the Mississippi Association of School Superintendents. He has been retired as superintendent of the Copiah County School district since 2001 after having served 28 years.

He has an associate degree from Copiah-Lincoln Community College, a bachelor’s degree from Delta State University, a master’s from Mississippi College and a doctoral coursework from the University of Mississippi.

“I sincerely believe in the Mississippi community college system and the avenue it provides to the young adults of our state,” he said. “If it had not been for Copiah-Lincoln Community College being only 17 miles from my home I would not have had an opportunity to higher education.

“Hinds Community College offers so much help and so many opportunities to the students in Mississippi and to older adults who need to be retrained for new employment,” Sullivan said.

New Rankin County school district superintendent Sue Townsend joins the Hinds board in January.
