Hattiesburg High Cuts Dropout Rate in Half

Congratulations to Dr. Annie Wimbish and the rest of Hattiesburg Public Schools for cutting their dropout rate by more than half. Hattiesburg’s dropout rate fell from 27.8 percent to 11.2 percent.

While the state’s dropout rate increased, Hattiesburg can be proud of their school system for such a great achievement.

This is one of those times that it makes me proud to say that I'm an HHS graduate. I'm glad to see that HHS is getting better about retaining students and helping them complete the most basic and necessary education a child can receive: a high school education.

Thanks Toby for the news about this.
