The Vision

About Us

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.  Although The Vision has shifted between print and online publications for decades, The Vision now uploads a new online edition every Thursday.

The Vision is home to many creative and awarded writers, coming from all different backgrounds in the state of Mississippi.  More information about the current staff of the 2019-2020 year can be found on the Staff page of The Vision.

MSMS alumnus Thomas Richardson, the 2019-2020 JoAnne Sellers Newspaper Adviser of the Year, is in his fifth year of leading The Vision staff. After graduating from MSMS in 2004, Richardson received his bachelor’s degree at Millsaps College, where he served as the sports editor and columnist for the student newspaper, The Purple & White. Richardson went on to earn a master’s degree at Vanderbilt University and two additional master’s degrees from Mississippi University for Women. He is in his eleventh year of teaching high school English in Mississippi.
