Emerging Reporters Fellow

Candace McKenzie, a Raymond native, earned an associate’s degree from Hinds Community College before transferring to Millsaps College, where she will graduate summer 2021. During her time at Millsaps, McKenzie served as editor-in-chief of The Purple and White student newspaper and collaborated with administration, alumni, students, and several others to revive the once non-existent paper to a place of importance on the campus. 

The Millsaps senior also previously worked with the Mississippi Center for Investigative Reporting on a comparative investigative report on domestic violence against women of color in Mississippi and Texas.
