You are invited
to our July meeting of the
Our guest speaker this month is
Missie B. Usry
Georgia Military College
Missie Usry is a native of Augusta, GA, where most of her family still lives today.
Though she dropped out of high school in her senior year, it was having her children in her 20’s and becoming a single mom that motivated Missie to earn a GED, just after her son turned a year old. As a first generation college graduate, she’s earned an A.A.S. from Georgia Military College in 1998, double majoring in Sociology and Criminal Justice to earn a B.A. from Augusta State University in 2001, and an MBA in Marketing in 2006 from University of Phoenix. Missie has also completed half of the requirements for a Doctor of Educational Leadership degree at University of Phoenix.
She’s worked in customer service roles since the age of 17 and has spent most of her professional career the last 13 years working in higher education. Education has been the key that changed her life, so she has enjoyed sharing her experiences with potential college students, first as enrollment counselor and senior enrollment counselor at Southern Wesleyan University, assistant registrar at Augusta Tech, associate faculty member at University of Phoenix, and now as GMC’s Enrollment and Recruiting Manager. It’s a family joke that she’s worked at every college she’s attended except Augusta State University, which can’t happen now that the school officially has merged and the name no longer exists.
