The Vision was founded during the Mississippi School for Mathematics and Science’s second year of existence by an eager group of student reporters and now-retired MSMS instructor Jack Carter. For the next (almost) three decades, The Vision has shifted between print and online publications and seen a colorful staff of countless high school journalists.
As it is a two-year high school, MSMS and the staff of The Vision see students come in as “junies” and graduate as successful seniors rapidly. More information about the current staff can be found on the Staff page of The Vision.
MSMS class of 2004 graduate Thomas Richardson is the current adviser of The Vision. After graduating from MSMS, Richardson received his undergraduate degree at Millsaps College, where he served as the sports editor of the student newspaper, The Purple and White. After graduating from Millsaps, Richardson went on to complete a graduate degree at Vanderbilt University and his teaching certificate at the Mississippi University for Women. After receiving his teaching certificate Richardson, went on to teach for seven years before landing in Hooper room 106 to lead MSMS’s young journalists.
