COLUMBUS, Miss. -- A long-serving administrator at Mississippi University for Women will retire in 2018 after more than a 45-year tenure.
Dr. Sheila V. Adams, who came to The W in 1973, will retire at the end of the 2017-18 academic year, ending a tenure that saw the College of Nursing and Speech-Language Pathology she led grow into one of the largest programs in the state.
“Her career is an inspiration of vision, hard work and the teamwork to accomplish great things,” said MUW President Jim Borsig. “She has made incredible contributions to the university.”
