Department, building named for instrumental figure
The Tunica County Vocational-Technical Center has a new name to underline its continued role in the education of local students.
On October 27, the center was dedicated to its first director and will now be known as the David Williams Jr. Career & Technical Center.
The facility was built on the Rosa Fort campus and opened in 1988, with Williams at the helm. He designed the blueprint for the center’s construction and hired the first staff members, a group that came to be known as the “Dream Team.”

Citing the influence of Tunica County High School teachers Thurman Clark and Agnes Coulter, Bailey quoted Alfred Lord Tennyson to explain how he draws from his own experiences to craft characters and story lines.
“’I am a part of all that I have met,’” Bailey recited. “That was one of Mrs. Coulter’s favorites.”
