Because of his congeniality, generosity, patience, frankness, keen sense 
of humor, and mischievous grin, we fondly dedicate this 1948 Rocketeer to 
our red-haired High School Principal, Mr. J. A. Bullard.

President Roscoe C. Pugh 

Synonymous with Mississippi education is the name of 
Roscoe C. Pugh. He is a native Mississippian and has devoted 
his life to the promotion of our state and national education. 
President Pugh received his B.A. degree from Millsaps Col- 
lege, Jackson, Mississippi and his M.A. degree from the Uni- 
versity of Mississippi, Oxford, Mississippi. On July 17, 1948, 
he will have served his twel c th year as President of North- 
west Mississippi Junior College and in this period the College 
has made more progress than ever before in its thirty-two 
years of existence. To the man who has brought Northwest 
to its present rating and to a great educator, the Rocketeer 
on behalf of the Student Body pays tribute.
