JCJC’s Herrington Receives State FCA’s Ferriss Award
Release Date:8/2/2015
Jones County Junior College

JACKSON – Jones County Junior College athletic director Katie Herrington is an active booster of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.

For her continued support of FCA, Herrington was presented with the Dave “Boo” Ferriss Influence Award at the FCA Coaches Luncheon at the Mississippi Association of Coaches All-Sports Clinic on July 16 at the Jackson Hilton.

The Ferriss Award is given annually to a coach who has been actively involved in FCA over the years and who has had a strong Christian influence.

Herrington currently serves on the FCA Board in Jones County, sponsors the FCA 5K Run at JCJC and has attended two FCA mission trips. Next year, she has plans to host an FCA Power Camp on the JCJC campus.

Herrington has been very influential in raising the support necessary to hire Justin Graves, the Jones County FCA representative, who serves as a missionary to the coaches and athletes at JCJC.

Ferriss is one of the most well known sports figures in Mississippi.

He was drafted by the Boston Red Sox in 1942 after spending three years on the pitching staff at Mississippi State, where he was an All-Southeastern Conference player.

He became a pitching coach for the Red Sox before serving as head baseball coach at Delta State for 26 years.

The Mississippi FCA credits Ferriss for bringing FCA to the state.

The vision he caught at the first FCA National Camp in Estes Park, Colorado, in 1956 has resulted in thousands of Mississippi coaches and athletes committing their lives to Christ.

Herrington has served as JCJC’s athletic director for nine years. She served as JCJC’s women’s basketball coach for 11 years and has been a fulltime Health and Physical Education instructor for the past 16 years. She also serves as the Health, Physical Education and Recreation Division Chair.

Herrington is a 1980 graduate of Taylorsville High School and led her team to a state championship in basketball that season. She attended Mississippi University for Women on a basketball scholarship from 1980-84 and was a four-year starter.

After graduating cum laude with a degree in physical education, Herrington was hired as assistant basketball coach at William Carey. After one year as an assistant, she became head coach of the Lady Crusaders, a position she held for three years before coming to JCJC.

Herrington served as the NJCAA Women’s Regional Director for 15 years and as assistant director for five years.

She was named the Mississippi Junior College Women’s Basketball Coach of the Year in 1990 and was selected JCJC Faculty of the Year in 2008.

She is married to Bob Herrington and they have a daughter, Kellie, who is married to Robbie Jefcoat.
