Kennard Scholars Program:

In 2014, the Assistant to the Vice President of Student Affairs, Dr. Eddie A. Holloway, established the Kennard Scholars Program in honor of Mr. Clyde Kennard, the first African American to attempt to enroll at The University of Southern Mississippi.  In recognition of this history-making attempt, the Kennard Scholars Program helps eligible students become and remain successful scholars and future graduates at the University.
