An Indianola native and former Enterprise-Tocsin journalist has been named the Director of Communications and Marketing at Mississippi Valley State University.
The college announced last week Brittany Davis-Green assumed her duties on Oct. 2.
Green, a veteran journalist and graduate of Delta State University, turned to the field of public relations after working for some time in the journalism industry.
“Receiving the opportunity to work for a university that plays such a pivotal role in the livelihood of my home, the Mississippi Delta, is indeed an honor,” Green, a resident of Cleveland, said. “I’m excited about the opportunity to accentuate the myriad of positive things happening here at MVSU and to highlight the impact Valley is making in this region and across the world.”
Green worked as the Chief Communications Officer & Branding for Coahoma Community College prior to accepting her most recent role at MVSU.
Green worked in journalism before moving into the public relations field, winning awards with The Enterprise-Tocsin.
“We have a talented Communications and Marketing team here at MVSU, and Brittany’s first-hand knowledge of the assets and unique challenges we have facing the Mississippi Delta, as well as her diverse skill set and experience in the communications and marketing sphere, makes her the ideal fit,” Interim Vice President of University Advancement Dameon Shaw said. “We are expecting great things from Brittany as we continue to expand MVSU’s prominence in the world of higher education.”
Green now serves as MVSU’s official spokesperson and leads the entire communications and marketing department, the college said.
She is tasked with developing integrated marketing strategies to help promote a positive image for the college.
“Valley is a special place that offers unique opportunities for individuals to develop educationally as well as personally. I look forward to working with the leadership team and the entire MVSU community as we push forward in solidarity to continue living up to our slogan, ‘One Team. One Goal. One Valley. …In Motion.’”
Green is a member of the College Public Relations Association of Mississippi and the Kappa Alpha Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority.
She is married to LeMarrick Green and has two children, LeMarrick Jr. and Bailei.
