Shad White, Mississippi State Auditor, spoke to the Rotary Club of North Jackson at the Club’s December 17 meeting. He is a native of Sandersville in Jones County, Mississippi. He attended Sandersville public schools and Northeast Jones County High School. He is a graduate of the University of Mississippi, St. John’s College of Oxford University in the United Kingdom, and Harvard  Law School. He attended Oxford as Rhodes Scholar.

White was appointed State Auditor by Governor Phil Bryant in July 2018 and re-elected in November 2019. He described his job as protecting the money of Mississippi taxpayers. He cited several examples of where the State Auditor’s office has found and reported fraud. One example was when procurement officers at Coahoma Community College misused college credit cards to make nearly $1 million in fraudulent purchases. Those people are under inditement and awaiting trial. 

We thank White for his presentation and for his service to the Mississippi taxpayers. He (right ) shown in the following photo with Rotarian and former law partner Luther Munford(left) and  Club President Greg Campbell (center).
