For many years, Sharplin has heard the good, the bad and the funny stories from one of the many professional educators in her family.
Summer Sharplin of Ripley (right) visits with her grandmother and mentor Thelma Rutherford of New Site after the UM Honors Convocation. The family legacy of excellence in education began when her grandmother and grandfather met while serving as teachers in Marietta.
Even though she hadn’t until recently considered pursuing a career as a teacher herself, she became drawn to the profession. Sharplin is interning as a student teacher for a sixth-grade math class at Hills Chapel School in Booneville. Established in 1904 in memory of Marcus Elvis Taylor of Booneville, an honored 1871 UM alumnus, Taylor Medals recognize no more than 0.45 percent of all undergraduates, regardless of campus, for meritorious scholarship and deportment. Sharplin was also inducted into the Kappa Delta Phi education honor society and the prestigious Phi Kappa Phi national academic honor society this spring. Even though she feels she has found the right career path, Sharplin plans to keep learning and hopefully obtain a graduate degree in education.
Connor Edwards (center), the UM Outstanding Student in the BGS program, with his seventh- and eighth-grade students in Satun, Thailand, where he first taught English during the summer of 2014. OXFORD, Miss.­­­ – Although University of Mississippi senior Connor Edwards is from a small town – Pickens, in Holmes County – he has his sights set on some big-world experiences and has set his future in motion with the goal of helping people on the other side of the world. A transfer student from Holmes Community College, Edwards has excelled during his time at UM. Edwards earned the prestigious Lyceum Scholarship when he transferred to the Oxford campus  to begin his junior year in fall 2014. The travel bug had bitten and in the summer of 2015, Edwards headed back overseas to teach English to college students in Japan. Upon graduation in May, Edwards plans to pursue his master’s degree in Teaching English as a Second Language.
McCormick said he has stayed in touch with Edwards since his arrival in Oxford and has been especially proud of his work with international students. In its sixth year, the annual Paragon award is designed to recognize UM faculty who use online learning technology effectively through good practices in course design and innovative use of technologies. Meek’s strong teaching skills in the face-to-face classroom have translated well into her online classes, said Robert Cummings, director of the UM writing and rhetoric department. Originally from the Delta town of Cleveland, Meek completed her undergraduate degree in English from UM and earned a graduate degree in English from the University of Alabama, as well as a graduate degree in women’s gender and sexuality studies from the University of Cincinnati.
Meek’s online course is the second part of the required freshmen-level writing course that serves as an important building block for Ole Miss students. She also says she created her course to appeal to the different learning styles of students. Meek demonstrated her commitment to providing quality education in her online course by requiring that each student attend a one-on-one video conference to discuss their writing assignments. After a previous semester of online teaching where students seemed to lag behind, Meek created a student manual to help students adapt to online learning.
The connection with other UM faculty and with support she receives from the UM Online Design and eLearning department has been a great resource for her transition from a traditional classroom instructor to an online one, she said. Working with data from the Higher Education Research Institute at UCLA that explains the most important factors for students, the College Choice ranking system determined that the Ole Miss online MBA program had the highest values in areas students are looking for as they make decisions on where to pursue a degree. The survey system gives weight equally to four parts of evaluation done by graduates and students in the program.
Children enjoy a day of exploring at the UM Field Station during a session of the annual Ecology Camp. Programs are available to suit any student’s interests and weeklong camps on varying dates work well around summer vacation plans. Kindergarten through sixth-grade students looking for adventure can register for the RebelQuest weekly day camp program.
Ecology day camps offer students plenty of opportunities to get their hands dirty with experiments and activities at the UM Field Station.
The Ole Miss STEM Camp for girls will teach students about roller coaster design and much more during the camps, scheduled for June 6-10 and June 13-17. If dropping an egg off the side of Vaught-Hemingway Stadium sounds like fun, your student might enjoy the annual Engineering Camp program offered in conjunction with the UM Center for Mathematics and Science Education. Learning how to draw for anime, comic books and many more genres will be explored during the UM Art Camps offered for rising seventh- and eighth-graders June 6-10, and again for ninth- to 12th-graders the week of June 13. Learn to write your own book and discover numerous other writing genres during creative writing camps, set for June 5-10 for rising seventh- and eighth-graders, and June 12-17 for rising ninth- and 10th-graders. The first McLean Entrepreneurial Leadership Program will be offered for rising 10th- and 11th-graders from May 29 to June 3. A Conservation Leadership Program will allow rising high school juniors and seniors to work with Ole Miss professors conducting research on issues associated with conservation, pollution control and more.
Students in eighth to 10th grades looking to prepare for college and try out campus life can opt to live and study on campus for the UM Summer Academy program.
Not all students graduating this spring from the University of Mississippi High School were able to attend a physical graduation ceremony, but several traveled to Oxford to participate. OXFORD, Miss.­­­ – The University of Mississippi has enjoyed tremendous growth in recent years, with the overall student body expanding a remarkable 22 percent, to nearly 24,000 students, since 2010.
But no academic unit on campus has grown as rapidly as the University of Mississippi High School, where enrollment has surged 594 percent over the past five years, growing from 47 students in fall 2010 to 326 students this fall.
The school, which recently successfully renewed its accreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools’ Council on Accreditation and School Improvement, or SACS CASI-AdvancED, also has seen its course enrollments increase by a staggering 935 percent over the same span. The school’s faculty includes 23 certified teachers, many of whom teach in a Mississippi school district.

Working at her own pace also attracted Andrea Hightower, who served as Miss Mississippi Teen USA 2015, to the school. A senior, Hightower has completed three courses through UMHS and is taking Computer Science and English III this fall. Being able to obtain high school course credits through an accredited online program makes it possible for some students – including many older students who are returning to school – to complete their diploma, Shelton said.
Those efforts were acknowledged recently when Shelton received confirmation that SACS CASI had renewed the school’s accreditation. To earn accreditation, schools must meet SACS CASI-AdvancED’s high standards, which include an on-site evaluation by a team of professionals from outside the school as well as implementation of continuous school improvement goals. The reaccreditation process serves as an in-depth look into factors such as course content, student data, and impact to families, students and the community, as well as measurements for student success. The benefit of accreditation to UMHS students and families is not only knowing that the program is exceeding national standards and providing outstanding learning opportunities, but also that the credits earned will be easily accepted by accredited public and private high schools for graduation.
In its seventh year, the university’s Study USA program is assisting faculty members as they work to put students in direct contact with research and experts who hold firsthand experience in a variety of subjects. During the upcoming Wintersession break in January 2016, students in various disciplines can take advantage of opportunities to immerse themselves in academic courses during one or two-week excursions. Manson taught Philosophy 345: Environmental Ethics, which deals with the human relationship with the environment, during the 2012 and 2015 Wintersession terms. Students also visited BIO, the biotechnology industry organization, to learn more about the controversies surrounding genetically modified foods and how they might affect the food supply in the future.
For the fourth time in as many years, Manson will lead a group of students to Washington during UM’s Wintersession 2016 term, this time for his class in medical ethics. Hudson participated in the Study USA Biomedical Ethics course during Wintersession 2014 and is now pursuing a master’s degree in bioethics at Emory University. X2 impact sensors were used in Ole Miss spring football practice to document head impact during plays.
OXFORD, Miss.­­­ – A University of Mississippi engineering professor is helping tackle the risks of head injuries in athletes engaged in contact sports, particularly football, and is inviting bright high school students to help with the project this summer. Matthew Morrison, an assistant professor of electrical engineering, is using high-tech sensors to monitor the forces on athletes’ heads during practice and game conditions. Students from Mississippi, Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana and Tennessee are eligible to apply for 16 spots in the program. Since 2010, X2 has pioneered the development of wearable impact-monitoring devices and assessment tools to enable more accurate diagnoses and comprehensive management of concussions in sports, military and industrial environments.
Morrison applied and received an educational research grant from the company in the fall of 2014.
Program participants will also be working closely with UM athletic trainers to develop a mobile device application that will track nutrition and water consumption of athletes to see if those results yield data that are useful for preventing head injuries during competitions.
During the program, students will present their findings during a weekly meeting of Ole Miss athletics coaches, trainers and staff.
Applications are available online for students who would like to be a part of the research program this summer. Students must have a score of 25 or higher on the ACT and at least a 3.0 high school GPA to be eligible.
Now the film will be included alongside 64 other independent films chosen for the 12th annual Tupelo Film Festival, taking place this weekend in Tupelo. Freeland became interested in the small, historic town of Mound Bayou in 2011 when several UM departments were working together on service-learning projects in the area. The hospital, founded in 1942, was one of the first modern medical facilities in Mississippi that was built, owned and operated by African-Americans. That interest led Freeland to create the film with the help of research adapted from Sims’ dissertation. Freeland spent months scouring archives for information that would convey the inspiration behind the founding of this unique community and the special relationship between Davis and his most trusted slave, Ben Montgomery. Shortly after the Civil War, Montgomery purchased 4,000 acres from Davis and began to farm with the help of other freedmen from the area. The documentary is stocked with original photos of the Davis and Montgomery families, the land and many of the residents of Davis Bend. OXFORD, Miss.­­­ – Full-time University of Mississippi faculty members are invited to submit proposals for the 2015 travel grant program offered by the UM Office of Online Design and eLearning.
The Office of Online Design and eLearning previously sponsored UM faculty to attend the Mississippi Creating Futures through Technology Conference, but recently decided to offer those funds for out-of-state conferences as well, Klingen said.
Award recipients do not have to be teaching online courses, but preference will be given to applicants who will be presenting results of research or scholarship at the conference they attend.
Several UM faculty members were awarded the travel grant in 2014, including Shennette Garrett-Scott, assistant professor of history. You will find all of the necessary forms and information about classes available and how to register your student. You will find more information regarding Summer Session along with links about how to enroll here. In the absence of a final exam, the student may be required to demonstrate mastery through the assessment process used in the course. This may be paid by cash or E-Funds only. E-Funds payment option will be available at the end of the application form below, or by clicking here.
All WOHS students are enrolled in Successful Living in the 9th grade year to meet this requirement. However, students who are enrolled in Music and Foreign Language in 9th grade will have a schedule conflict.
Complete the WOHS-Online-Learning-Request-Form if you would like this optional study guide. Attending the awards ceremony with Sharplin were her mother and her 84-year-old grandmother, Thelma Rutherford of New Site. She had an opportunity to sing the national anthem at different local and regional events, including a Memphis Redbirds baseball game.
He recently was named the 2016 Outstanding Senior in the Bachelor of General Studies degree program as well as the class marshall. When he arrived at Ole Miss, he was considering a career in the medical profession, but a summer trip to Thailand changed his mind. The BGS program at UM is a cross-disciplinary degree plan offered to maximize opportunities for individuals who want to reach personal goals, meet job requirements and advance their careers. Nominees’ efforts are acknowledged for engaging students as well as their commitment to providing them with a quality education. In 2013, she received the Kramer Outstanding Teacher Award that is presented annually within the UM Department of Writing and Rhetoric.
As she prepared to resign from her Ole Miss position, representatives from her department approached her about teaching online courses.
The course is designed to prepare students for the various writing tasks they will need throughout college.

Several students liked working with her in this way and requested more than one feedback session. She says her teaching development circle gathers together online every two weeks in a virtual meeting between six or seven faculty members. These parts include a school’s academic reputation, value, career success for graduates and overall cost. A free preview of the program for third- and fourth-graders is set for April 23 at the Field Station.
The camps offer a new theme each week, including Lego week, outdoor adventure week, junior scientist week and many more. Students in second through fourth grades can participate during the weeks of June 6-10 or June 13-17. Female students in sixth through eighth grade are invited to come hear from successful women in varying fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics, and participate in fun learning activities from each genre. Students in sixth through eighth grades can participate June 6-10, while students in ninth to 12th grades will attend June 13-17.
Campers work with the latest software to help study and prevent concussions in student-athletes. Rising juniors and seniors can participate in a creative writing workshop June 12-17 or July 17-22. This innovative program will teach students how local businesses can help solve problems throughout the state by utilizing community engagement.
The program includes two-week sessions studying ACT prep, sports literature, introduction to debate and more. They are, from left, Nicolas Thomas of Arlington, Texas, Logan Johnson of Crystal Springs, Jimmie Ann Hall of Nettleton and Tyler Tatum of Clinton. The university’s schools of Engineering and Journalism and New Media have recorded even more impressive gains over that span, growing by 61 percent and 152 percent, respectively. Hightower attended Oxford High School until last fall, when her travel schedule made it difficult for her to maintain a regular classroom schedule. The rigorous five-year review provides a nationally recognized accreditation process that is used to continue school improvement focused on increasing student performance each year.
For UMHS diploma-route students, the SACS accreditation ensures that their degree is accepted for admission to any accredited college or university.
They met with numerous officials concerning environmental ethics issues as part of the UM Study USA program. It is that passion for sharing knowledge and creative ideas that is driving many UM faculty members to create learning experiences that go outside the four walls of a classroom.
Hospitality management in Las Vegas, a civil rights road trip around the Southeast and journalism in New Orleans are just a few of the classes scheduled for Wintersession 2016. During this time, Thomas Moorman, Southern region director for Ducks Unlimited, spoke to the class about the mission of the organization that serves as the United States’ largest wetlands conservation group.
They also visited with officials from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals to discuss both sides of the animal rights and food supply issues. He plans to work with rising high school juniors and seniors this summer to broaden the project, with a goal of aiding early detection and possible solutions to the critical problem of concussion injuries.
The program is made possible by a $200,000 grant from X2 Biosystems and is a partnership with the Ole Miss Department of Intercollegiate Athletics, the UM Center for Health and Sports Performance and the UM Summer College for High School Students. Besides participating in Morrison’s ongoing research concerning concussion management for contact-sport athletes, they will explore the fundamentals of biomedical science, computer science and engineering. The National Football League, National Hockey League and Major League Soccer have all adopted X2’s Integrated Concussion Evaluation, or ICE, solution for baseline neurocognitive testing, post-injury evaluation and return-to-play progress monitoring of their athletes. In conjunction with the Ole Miss Athletics Health and Sports Performance Center, he began using the X2 impact sensors and ICE software during spring football practice to document head impact during plays.
Each student accepted also gets a $2,000 scholarship to cover the cost of room, board and program activities for four weeks on campus. Freeland teamed up with UM doctoral candidate Katrina Sims, who was writing and researching for her dissertation on the Taborian Hospital.
Eventually the cotton business went under with the pressures of failing economic and agricultural conditions. Freeland found many of the photographs through extensive research in the Library of Congress and the city of Vicksburg archives.
The grant was created to encourage the exploration of distance, online, blended or hybrid education, and instructional strategies at the university. The grant can also assist faculty members who are unable to attend a specific professional conference without financial support. Students may sign up for one or two classes, and there are two sessions during the day (a.m. WOHS will enroll you via MiVU and send you confirmation after you complete the enrollment form below and turn it in. Students can choose any three minors offered at the university and create a specialized educational path. His hard work paid off as he was selected to receive membership in the prestigious Phi Kappa Phi academic honor society in November. He really found his niche working with international students, and he’s a great ambassador for Ole Miss. 1 based on what students feel are the most important factors when choosing a college for post-graduate studies.
Each week stands alone for registration so families can pick which weeks work best for their schedules and needs. Camp will be open to fifth- and sixth-graders June 20-24 and again June 27- July 1, then seventh- and eighth-graders can attend the week of July 11-15. This monthlong camp takes place May 31-June 29, and generous scholarship packages are available. Students also toured the UM wastewater treatment facility and heard about the environmental work that plant supervisor David Adkisson is engaged in.
During the Grove Bowl spring football scrimmage last month, players and trainers gathered enough information from immediate readings to implement in-game techniques to ward off potentially damaging hits to the head.
The area included thousands of acres of rich farmland, located in a bend of the Mississippi River, but what made it noteworthy were Davis’ utopian ideas of a model slave community. Years later, Ben’s son, Isaiah, took what he had learned at the Bend and established the new town of Mound Bayou.
Because the courses are offered online and are therefore self-paced, students that successfully complete the course before the end date may be excused for the rest of the session.
