Northeast Mississippi Community College is mourning the passing of its Police Chief William Anthony Anderson.

Anderson attended the Northeast Lady Tigers basketball team’s first-round game in the National Junior College Athletics Association (NJCAA) first-round Region XXIII Tournament on Saturday, March 9 at the Bonner Arnold Coliseum before suffering a medical emergency. He was 61-years-old.

“Chief Anthony Anderson’s untimely departure reminds us that even the strongest among us are not immune to life’s fragility,” said Northeast president Dr. Ricky G. Ford. “His dedication to safety, service, and community will be deeply missed but forever cherished in the hearts of those he protected and inspired.”

Anderson was the son of the late W.M. and Ilene Anderson and married to the former Connie Smith. Together, the pair had three children, Anna, Ebony and William, who is also in law enforcement, and two grandchildren, Kydwn and Fallyn.

Anderson and his wife are previous members of Oak Grove Missionary Baptist Church and current members of Ecru Second Baptist Church, where Anderson served as a deacon.
