4/29/2009

Albert Mosley, a Shuqualak native and former member of the staff at Galloway Memorial United Methodist Church in Jackson, recently was named the chaplain at Johns Hopkins University at Baltimore.

He will assume his new duties July I and comes from the Eastern Pennsylvania Conference of the United Methodist Church in Philadelphia, Pa.,. where he served as assistant director of the Center for Civic Engagement and an adjunct professor in the Pennoni Honors College at Drexel University, teaching courses in subjects ranging from comparative ethics to public life and leadership.

Mosley’s hiring at Johns Hopkins capped a two-year search. “From the first time we met him, we had the feeling that he personified the perfect mix of interpersonal skills and strong background,” said Susan Boswell, dean of student life at Johns Hopkins. “We feel so fortunate to have him join the Johns Hopkins community and know he will make an incredible contribution to student life here,” she said.

Mosley, 36, has degrees from Millsaps College, Duke University and Yale University.
