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 on a daily basis.

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 2021-2022 year can be found on the Staff page of The Vision.
