“My goal is to help at least one person every day,” Prosser said. “My location at the school makes me easily available to teachers and students.” Many Starkville Academy patrons recognize Prosser as the familiar, friendly face in the high school office, where she works as an administrative assistant, but she has served the school in a variety of roles over the years. In 1988 Prosser and her family moved from a small town in the Mississippi Delta to Starkville, and Starkville Academy quickly became home. “My sons were in the third grade and Kindergarten,” she said. “Starkville Academy was the best fit for making the transition to Starkville.” Prosser has served as a room mother, SAPA President, and as a member and officer of the Starkville Academy School Board. Both her sons, Andy and Will, graduated from Starkville Academy. Choosing Starkville Academy for her family is a decision she’s proud she made. “Starkville Academy has excellent teachers, a safe environment, a family atmosphere, and many great, competitive programs and extracurricular activities,” she said. That same great environment is why she enjoys working at Starkville Academy, as well. “My job at Starkville Academy has put me in touch with exceptional co-workers, and I have had many positive experiences,” Prosser said. “The family atmosphere and support has been very important to me and my family.”
