A South Mississippi woman has received a promotion in the Secretary of State's Office.
A news release from Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann said Sherri Carr Bevis, his South Mississippi service coordinator, will be the assistant secretary of state for external marketing.
“Sherri is a tireless worker with extensive experience and personal skills and personality which will continue to expand the knowledge of our office and its duties to the public,” Hosemann said.
Bevis, a Mississippi State graduate who lives in Diamondhead, will be responsible for the marketing efforts while continuing to serve as a liaison for the agency in the Gulf Coast region. She also has worked in former Sen. Trent Lott's office in Washington, where she received a master's in higher education administration.
“It has been a privilege to work with Secretary Hosemann and this agency for the past two and a half years as the service coordinator for South Mississippi,” said Bevis. “Moving forward, I am extremely honored and excited about this new role as we work together to share our message and mission with the entire state.”
On the Coast, she serves on the boards of United Way of South Mississippi, Gulfport Rotary Club and Gulfport Business Club.
