Allison DeWeese named Holmes new director of Health Science Programs

Career Technical Coordinator Allison DeWeese has been named Holmes Community College’s director of Health Science Programs. She will be stepping into the role effective June 1 upon the retirement of the current Director of Health Science Ginger Meriwether. DeWeese will continue to work from the Holmes Ridgeland Campus.
“Ginger Meriwether has done a phenomenal job in laying the foundation for what this Director of Health Sciences role should be,” Vice President for Career Technical Education Dr. Amy Whittington said. “As Ginger transitions into retirement, we are very excited about Allison DeWeese following her as only the second Director of Health Sciences. Allison will bring a depth of knowledge from multiple facets of the college and education system with her to this role.”
DeWeese holds a Master of Science in counselor education and student development from Mississippi State University, a Bachelor of Science in educational psychology from MSU and an Associate of Arts in education from Hinds Community College.
DeWeese first came to Holmes in 2007 as an academic counselor; a position she held until transitioning into the role of Career Technical Education counselor in 2013. During this time, she also began teaching Orientation and Career Exploration online for the college. In 2021, she was promoted to her current role as coordinator for Career Technical Education.
In addition to her dedication to the college, DeWeese has always been an active member of the community, as well. She became a Ridgeland Chamber Diplomat in 2015 and was named Ridgeland Chamber of Commerce Diplomat of the Year in 2016 and 2023. From 2016-2018, she served as Diplomat Co-Captain for the Chamber. She is also a Grayhawk Home Owners Association (HOA) Board Member and the Holmes Foundation Golf Tournament Chairperson.
DeWeese and her husband, Bryan, have one son, Thomas, who is a senior at Germantown High School. They are active members of Madison Methodist Church. In her free time, DeWeese enjoys watching Thomas play baseball, traveling and attending MSU sporting events.
“I have a lot of learn but I am looking forward to the opportunity to serve the college as the Director of Health Sciences,” DeWeese said.
