The Mississippi Delta is comprised of a group of small towns and portions of Arkansas and Louisiana that are divided by the Mississippi and Yazoo Rivers. The town of Drew, like many small Mississippi towns included in the Mississippi Delta, contains unique racial, cultural, and economic history.

She attended the University of Southern Mississippi and obtain my masters and doctoral degree in Higher Education Administration, in addition to pursing a certificate in instructional technology. Currently Dr. Harris now works as a coordinator in the academic nursing program at Texas Woman's University in Dallas, Texas.
