More about Taylor Avera

When Taylor Avera visited Mississippi State’s Meridian campus, she knew immediately that she had found a home.

“I looked at all my options. I felt that this was a place where I could really connect.”

A transfer student from Jones County Junior College, Taylor changed her major from accounting to business administration, a move that she felt would better serve her long-term goals. After graduation, Taylor plans to take over her parents’ business, a successful processing plant that has been in operation for more than 30 years.

With the support of her advisors, she was able to conduct an internship at her own family’s business, developing new ways to market the company and its products. With this experience, combined with her solid business education, Taylor feels confident that she can take her family’s company to a new level of success.
