Co-Lin’s Director of Enrollment Services Samantha Speeg of Brookhaven has been named ACT’s Postsecondary Champion for Mississippi. The ACT College and Career Readiness Champions are high school seniors, K-12 professionals, postsecondary professionals and workforce professionals who are making a positive impact on their communities through their efforts to advance college and career readiness for all. The ACT College and Career Readiness Champions are individuals across the country who support ACT’s mission of education and workplace success.

ACT State Councils, comprised of education and workforce professionals from all 50 states, serve as the selection committee and select one Champion per category for each participating state.

“Everyone- at some point in their life- has been inspired by an individual who is tenacious, positive and dedicated to helping others achieve their life goals,” said ACT Senior Vice President of Public Affairs Scott Montgomery. “The ACT College and Career Readiness initiative provides an opportunity to recognize those exemplary individuals whom we all know and love and want to ensure their stories are told to inspire others to action.”

Speeg is completing her first year as Director of Enrollment Services. In previous positions at Co-Lin, she served as an academic counselor and college recruiter. A graduate of Co-Lin, Speeg earned her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Mass Communication and Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Graphic Communications from the University of Southern Mississippi. She also received a Master of Science Degree in Higher Education Administration from Mississippi College.

Speeg and her husband, Adam, are the parents of three children, Julia, Eden, and John Daniel. They are members of Mt. Zion Baptist Church.
