Kaylin McCree comes from a small town in Mississippi and she never lost that small town feeling.
McCree grew up in Newton, attended Newton County High School and went to a small community college. When searching for a university, she hoped to find a place to be where her professors would know her name, a place where should would have to walk a mile between classes. She chose Mississippi University for Women.
“I knew it was a good academic school and it was a welcoming environment. The university made me feel comfortable. I like the fact that it is small, because everything is so convenient. Your professors you on personal level, so I thought that was the place for me,” said McCree.
Despite COVID-19 and transitioning to online classes, McCree graduated this spring with her undergraduate degree in speech-language pathology. She admits she is not in favor of online classes. This fall she will return to campus to pursue her graduate degree in speech-language pathology.
