Bringing History To Life

About this Speaker

A native of Texas, Carla Falkner moved to Mississippi in 1977 to pursue her graduate degree in history at the University of Mississippi. After earning a Master of Arts she taught high school social studies at South Panola High School and New Site High School, both in north Mississippi. In 1989, she joined the faculty of Northeast Mississippi Community College as a history instructor, where she taught for the next 30 years. During that time, she served as an advisor for Phi Theta Kappa, the community college honors society, and as Academic Head for the Division of Social, Behavioral, and Applied Sciences. In 2017, she and Jeffrey Powell, NEMCC Instruction Technology Specialist, launched a project to create augmented reality for the Corinth Contraband Camp. Now retired, Falkner is continuing to do volunteer work on First Steps to Freedom: the Corinth Contraband Augmented Reality Project. Additionally, she teaches English as a Second Language, serves on the board of the Tupelo Oren Dunn Museum, and is a member of the United Way Community Service Council. She resides in Tupelo, Mississippi with her husband, Patrick.
