About Excel

Our Mission:
The purpose of Excel is to further education, promote community building, encourage community services and fostering healthy lives.

Excel Commons Family Community Center is the heart of Main Street in Okolona, Miss.  What began as a  summer youth program in three borrowed classrooms 25 years ago, has turned a former department store into the community hub.

Children’s enrichment, senior wellness and GED certification classes are the core of Excel’s programs, while a community gym,computer lab and commons room are open to all in need. Excel Commons also includes a resale shop, coffee shop and volunteer center.

Excel is led by Executive Director Sister Elizabeth Brown, CSJ, working together with the dedicated staffers and volunteers who provide support in a family environment.

Services are also offered at our satellite locations in Calhoun City and Morton.
