Holloway named headmaster of Prentiss Christian School

The  board of directors of Prentiss Christian School has recently appointed Homer H. Holloway Jr. as the new headmaster.

“I am deeply honored and extremely humbled by the opportunity to come back and serve my hometown community as the next PCS headmaster,” said Holloway.

“I have traveled all over this great country of ours and everywhere I have had the privilege to go, I have always taken Jefferson Davis County with me.”

Holloway is seeking to build on current and past successes as he joins Prentiss Christian.

“As the new headmaster, I am committed to assembling a team of highly dedicated teaching professionals that are willing to adhere to and implement the mission statement of PCS.”

“We at PCS will seek to provide each student with a traditional education supported by the teaching of Christian principles and values.”

“PCS has been extremely blessed by the quality and experience level of the teachers that are coming on board for the 2020-2021 academic year.”

“These individuals are in the process of reviewing, evaluating and updating our current K3-12th grade curriculum to meet and exceed the current accreditation standards and to meet the level of expectation of every patron paying for a private school education.”

“We are also entering into educational partnership programs with several outside entities that will offer supplemental resources for our teachers, students and parents to enhance student outcomes and success.”

The school is currently celebrating 50 years of operation. It was chartered by the State of Mississippi on Jan. 22, 1970.

“PCS has produced many successful and productive citizens over the last 50 years and we are just as excited about the potential of our students for the next 50 years.”

“I am dedicated to making sure that every PCS student has everything possible at their disposal to make them as successful as they want to be, no matter where life takes them after they leave our institution.”

Holloway is a native born son of Jefferson Davis County.  His parents are Pat Holloway and the late Homer H. Holloway Sr. of Prentiss.

He graduated from Prentiss High School and later completed his college degree at Millsaps College.

His brother, Randy Holloway, was a coach and teacher at  Prentiss Christian from 2004-2019.

“We look forward to welcoming Mr. Holloway and his family to PCS and feel he will accomplish great things for us,” said PCS School Board President Deanna Jones.

“We are excited about the future of Pentiss Christian School.”
