Mayor Peresa Causey was born to the parentage of Dave and Gloria Collins on October 28, 1966, in Chicago, IL. She relocated to the Delta with her parents and has remained with her youngest two children of eight between she and her late husband, James Causey.

Mayor Causey graduated Salutatorian of Simmons High School class of 1984. Under the strong influence of her mother, who “made” her further her education, she received a Bachelor’s degree from Alcorn State University in Elementary Education, a Master’s degree from Delta State University in Elementary Education, an endorsement in Gifted from Mississippi College, and a Specialist degree in Administration and Supervision from Delta State University.

Mayor Causey was previously employed by South Delta Elementary for eleven years and continued her career with the Hollandale School District for an additional twelve years until the death of her husband, James Causey in 2011. In 2019, Mayor Causey returned to the district, left again but later made her presence known in 2021 by being recognized as the Gifted Teacher.

She confessed a hope in Christ at the age of fourteen and was a member of New Hope Missionary Baptist Church until she married. Because of her strong faith in God and knowing that a family who prayed together, stayed together, she moved her membership to Mount Horeb Missionary Baptist Church, currently under the leadership of Pastor Michael Vannoy, where she performs many duties. Nothing pleases Mayor Causey more than working for her “Daddy.”

In 2021, one of the greatest accomplishments she received was being elected as the mayor for the city of Hollandale where she continuously serves her community with dignity and integrity.
