Former Gov. William F. Winter was the guest speaker at the sixth annual William Carey University scholarship dinner held Aug. 16 at Southern Oaks House and Gardens in Hattiesburg. The evening included a VIP reception, dinner with musical entertainment from the Carey Chorale, scholarship presentations, and Winter’s address. The dinner raised more than $1 million for scholarships for Carey students.
Winter’s election to the Mississippi House of Representatives in 1947 led to a political career spanning more than 40 years. He also served as state tax collector, state treasurer, and lieutenant governor before being elected as governor in 1980. Winter is best remembered for the passage of the Mississippi Education Reform Act and is sometimes referred to as the “father of public education in Mississippi.”
