There is much to be learned from our history. As we move forward as a college toward our centennial, we must envision our future while always embracing our past.
For nearly 100 years, East Central Community College has had the best interests of its students in mind. This is evident in many ways. Taking care of the academic and life needs of our students is what we are known for and what makes this small college in rural Decatur, Mississippi, so special. We have always had our students in mind.
Likewise, we have each other in mind, which makes our college one of the best places to work, not only in Mississippi, but in the nation. This is evidenced by our national recognition in recent years as a “Great College to Work For”.
With that said, it’s time that we start telling this story again. East Central Community College has adopted With You In Mind as its new—yet somewhat historic—tagline. Many of you might remember With You In Mind used in marketing campaigns several years ago. While our use of these four words faded over the years, our college’s culture of care did not.
With You In Mind is not a replacement for our college logo, but a return to the promise we have long kept that our students will be our No 1 priority. In the past, in the present, and in the future.
With You In Mind is much more than a tagline. It’s a promise. It’s our promise to our current students, our future students, and even our former students that this college will always make them its top priority. Therefore, we will ensure that it is always true. As Lou Holtz once said, “Don't ever promise more than you can deliver, but always deliver more than you promise.”
With You In Mind has been incorporated into our communications in many ways, including college advertising, social media, videos, the website, and much more. Below are the first With You In Mind videos and audios. There will be many more to follow.
