MCC’s Dr. Angie Carraway honored as 2024 Moody Institute Fellow

Dr. Angie Carraway, Meridian Community College Science and Wellness Division chair and chemistry instructor, has been named a Moody Institute Fellow for 2024.  

Marking her 26th year at MCC, Dr. Carraway was selected for this $875 award by the Moody Institute Trust Fund Board. The award pays tribute to Dr. George V. Moody, the first executive director of the State Board for Community and Junior Colleges.  

The trust aims to provide funds for enrichment experiences for Mississippi community and junior college faculty. Dr. Carraway will enroll in an online, five-course sequence program leading to E-Learning certification, and she looks forward to delving deeper into instructional design and development this fall. “E-learning is a lasting advancement, and it is essential that we implement it effectively and proficiently,” she said. 

At MCC, Dr. Carraway has served as campus coordinator for the Mississippi NASA Space Grant, organizer for the You Be the Chemist competition, NASA Community College Aerospace Scholars (NCAS) coordinator, and Pre-Professional Student Day. She’s also been named Outstanding Teacher of the Year and MCCer of the Month. She recently was presented with an MCC Foundation Enrichment through Travel Award. 

Dr. Carraway holds a doctorate in chemistry, a master of science degree in wood science and wood products and pulp and paper technology, and a bachelor of science in chemistry with an American Chemical Society (ACS) Concentration.
