Ms. Denavia Bell

My name is Denavia D. Bell. I was born to Donnell and Debra Bell. I am the second out of four phenomenal sisters. While growing up my parents enforced how important it was to get a good education. Since then, I have developed a strong passion for teaching. Currently I serve on the faculty at Provine High School where I’m the Dean of Student, the advisor for the Student Council, Climate and Wellness, point of contact for community partnerships and the chair of the homecoming committee.

I am a proud graduate of THEE Jackson State University with a bachelor’s degree in Biology. I am a graduate student at Jackson State University where my major is Clinical and Mental Health Counseling. I will graduate in May of next year (2022).  I’m also a professional makeup artist. I own my own business, Poisonous Stripes Makeup Artistry where my slogan is #comeandgetpoisoned. During my free time, I love to volunteer, motivate students and spend quality time with my family. I am an active member of Black’s Chapel MB Church. and a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated. I am a very giving person and I’m always eager to lend a helping hand. My favorite quote is “Courage is not having the strength to go on; it’s going on when you don’t have the strength.”
