BLUE MOUNTAIN, Miss. (AP) — Graduates at Baptist-affiliated Blue Mountain College are being saluted by Mississippi's former lieutenant governor.
Amy Tuck, now vice president for campus services at Mississippi State University, spoke at two commencement ceremonies Saturday on the college's northeast Mississippi campus.
The college presented degrees to 135 graduates.
Tuck was the second woman to be elected as the state's lieutenant governor in 1999, and was re-elected in 2003. Before then, Tuck served in the state Senate for five years and later was secretary of the Senate, overseeing daily operations of the legislative body.
A native of Maben, Tuck earned bachelor's and master's degrees from Mississippi State. She earned a law degree from the Mississippi College School of Law.
