The poll asked readers what they felt was the very best in Mississippi in 232 categories. The ballots were blank, with no pre-existing selections from which to choose.

“We are very thankful that people from every corner of Mississippi think that we are doing an outstanding job preparing young people for an incredibly uncertain future,” says Dr. George Penick, St. Andrew’s head of school. “Many of the jobs our students will have throughout their lives have not even been invented. Students must be able to adapt to the future. At St. Andrew’s, we stress learning how to think, not what to think. We want our students to live lives of meaning by being compassionate, thoughtful, and courageous citizens.”
