Tina Garrett was recently named the new Coordinator of Academic Programs on the Holmes Community College Grenada Campus. She previously served as a psychology instructor for the college.

A native of Winona, Garrett is a Mississippi Delta Community College alumna who earned an Associate of Arts degree before transferring to Delta State University. She earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology followed by a master’s degree in counseling, both from Delta State University. Garrett is currently a doctoral candidate at Delta State University.

Garrett has cultivated a diverse knowledge in higher education as a result of teaching and counseling for the past 20 years. Prior to her role as a psychology instructor, she served as a mental health therapist and worked in higher education as a career counselor at Mississippi Valley State University.

“My love for higher education began at Mississippi Valley, and that led to an over 20-year career teaching psychology and advising students,” Garrett said.

She taught psychology at Mississippi Delta Community College for 12 years before coming to Holmes as a psychology instructor in 2014.

Garrett began serving as the Holmes division chair for social and behavioral sciences in 2017. As a faculty member, she served on the Mississippi Faculty Association of Community Colleges as secretary and vice president.
