MONROE, La. — After a five-month search, the Fulton Chamber of Commerce in Fulton, Miss. has named ULM alumna and Itawamba Community College (ICC) public speaking instructor Mary Sue Boggs its new executive director.
The announcement was made via email from chamber treasurer and interim director Danny Gaither to the chamber members Sunday.
“The chamber’s board of directors are very excited about the talent Mary Sue brings to the chamber,” Gaither wrote.
A 25-year employee at ICC, Boggs is set to begin her job as the public face of the chamber in January after retiring later this year.
Boggs received an Associate of Arts degree in broadcasting and a Bachelor of Arts in radio/ television/film management and a minor in journalism from ULM (formerly Northeast Louisiana University). She received a Master of Arts in teaching, with an emphasis on speech communication, from Mississippi State University.
In addition to her teaching career, Boggs served six years as director of Most Beautiful and Miss ICC Pageants, 10 years as director and coach of the school’s forensics team and 21 years as chair of ICC’s speech and theater department.
