Keynote Speaker - DR. LILLIE W. MCCAIN
Growing up in a small farming community in Teoc, Miss., Dr. Lillie W. McCain spent her childhood years milking cows, chopping and picking cotton, planting and harvesting vegetables, fishing from the banks of ponds and streams, wading in creeks, picking blackberries, playing in fields of wildflowers, and enjoying family meals. These experiences developed in her an indelible love for life, an incredible work ethic, a love for people and a commitment to the principles of Jesus Christ.
The second of four daughters and two sons born to the late Charles and Mary McCain, she was educated in Mississippi’s public schools and actively participated in the civil rights movement. McCain was one of the first two African-American students to graduate from J.Z. George, a previously all-white high school in North Carrollton.
After high school, she graduated from Tougaloo College in Mississippi, Kansas State College, Texas A&M University-Central Texas (formerly the American Technological University) and Wayne State University in Michigan.
In 1975, McCain joined the faculty at Mott Community College, where she currently teaches psychology. She is also a certified, international facilitator for Phi Theta Kappa’s Leadership Development Studies seminars, where she conducts workshops on leadership development, multiculturalism, stress management, counseling strategies, working with difficult people, diversity in the workplace and effective parenting.
