Youngest Miss. lawmaker still a college student

The day he’s sworn in to the state House, Jeramey Anderson of Moss Point will turn 22.

Mississippi’s youngest legislator will be balancing education with legislation — he’s finishing his final year at Tulane University’s Gulf Coast campus in Biloxi, where he is studying homeland security and public relations.

The dean is very supportive and the university plans to work with him online from January to August, while the Legislature is in session, Anderson told The Sun Herald.

“I’m going to do what needs to be done,” he said. “The people of this district come first, and I will manage the two.”
