Libby White – Director

Headshot of Libby White

     As the director of the Harrison County Career and Technical Education Center I want to WELCOME you to our website.  As you tour the site you will see that our students are very much involved in career and technical organizations, leadership opportunities, competitive events, community events, and hands-on activities.  Be sure to click on each tab at the top of the page as you navigate the site.  

    I am so proud of these young people and privileged that I have an opportunity to observe and interact with them on a day-to-day basis. I am inspired by their creativity and encouraged by the career and educational goals they establish for themselves while here at our center.

    I have been with Harrison County School District since 1993. Prior to entering the career of education I spent 10 years in the banking industry. I am a graduate of the University of Southern Mississippi and hold a Master’s of Education degree in social studies, psychology, counseling, and school administration. I am also a National Board Certified Counselor and National Board Certified School Counselor.  

     One of my favorite quotes is by the great Albert Einstein.  Although a brilliant student, he became frustrated and unchallenged in school. He later wrote that the “spirit of learning and creative thought was lost in strict rote learning”.

     The Harrison County Career and Technical Education Center opens wide the windows of opportunity for students who learn best through demonstration, interaction, involvement, engaging activities, and hands-on educational opportunities. We promote the "spirit of learning" and encourage our student’s "creative thought".

Thank you for visiting our site!
