In 2006, William Carey College celebrated 100 years of serving students in south Mississippi. The celebration included the publication of William Carey College: The First 100 Years by alumni director Donna Duck Wheeler. It would have been impossible for Wheeler to predict Carey's growth over the next 11 years, including an enrollment increase of nearly 1,500 students and the establishment of programs such as the College of Osteopathic Medicine. The span between the first volume and this update also includes the name change to William Carey University and the discovery of an additional predecessor institution, Pearl River Boarding School, founded in 1892. This expanded volume, published in commemoration of the institution's corrected 125th birthday, tells the next chapter of Carey's history—a history filled with faculty, staff, students, and alumni living out the words of university namesake William Carey and "expecting and attempting great things for God."
