JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant is nominating Kathy Henry of Brandon to serve on the five-member state Parole Board.

Henry succeeds Clarence Brown of Yazoo City, who left June 30. The state Senate will consider Henry’s confirmation in 2015.

Henry has a master’s degree in counseling psychology and worked 25 years as a public school English teacher and counselor. For more than 20 years, she has been a member of a state juvenile justice advisory committee. Then-Gov. Haley Barbour appointed her to serve on a national juvenile justice advisory group.

During eight years on the staff of then-U.S. Rep. Chip Pickering, Henry’s duties included working with the U.S. Justice Department and the state Department of Corrections.

She is married to Mark Henry, director of the Mississippi Department of Employment Security.
