Contributions to education earn kudos for ORED

The Office of Research and Economic Development (ORED) at Mississippi State University has been recognized for its work to enhance opportunities for students and educators in the Magnolia State.

ORED received a Partnership Award from the Program of Research and Evaluation of Public Schools (PREPS) at its recent statewide conference.

“We appreciate all of the efforts that PREPS puts forth to work with school districts to help them improve their instructional and administrative practices, and ORED is pleased to be able to work collaboratively with their team. They are an excellent group of people who have a true passion for improving education in our state,” said assistant vice president for research Teresa Gammill, who accepted the award at the Jackson event.

PREPS is a private non-profit consortium of school districts whose purpose is to develop and implement educational products and services that help manage and support districts’ efforts to demonstrate improvement in their instructional programs.
PREPS is supported by the College of Education at MSU, and is housed in the Center for Educational Partnerships, the service division of the college.
