Ebony Sutton, was born and raised in Jackson, Mississippi. She has been employed with the Mississippi Department of Employment Security (MDES) for the past four years. She recently joined the MDES Office of Apprenticeship in October of 2023 as an Apprenticeship Expansion Specialist and will have a focus on education industry-based apprenticeship program development including pre-apprenticeships, teacher apprenticeships, Career and Technical Education, and all things involving youth in apprenticeship programs. Ebony has worked in various areas of the agency, and she is most excited to see where things go with her journey with Apprenticeship. The part about working within apprenticeship that makes her most excited is that she will have the chance to meet and network with so many people who do the same things that she does. Ebony is ready to work alongside her team for the betterment of Mississippi’s workforce. Welcome to the MAP Team Ebony!!
