Interesting...I was raised in Jackson, and that's the way it has been for 40 years...1st Pres, then Prep. I guess great institutions never die. My sister attended both and was HEAVILY courted by colleges across the nation when she graduated.

That's the way it works here in Mississippi. It's going to the right school and then the right college. I bet she has a fantastic job too. First Pres, Prep, and Ole Miss, if one decides to do business and make money in the Jackson Metro area.

Yep, only she was a State girl! Went to work for a Fortune 50 company and was immediately transferred out of MS. She fast tracked after that, but the local headhunters were all over her. Good to great student, but nothing daunting. Still, she does attribute much of her success to pre-college education - it surely opened the doors at colleges all over the nation, she just chose to stay in her home state for secondary education. Let it never be said education is everything, though...an accounting degree doesn't mean you can balance your checkbook (she's living proof of that), and she needs a dictionary to spell her own name...bless her heart... Maybe the school names helped more than we knew!
