Affordable costs, smaller class sizes, a convenient location and caring instructors are among the list of attributes Deborah Carter gives Coahoma Community College.

Carter, who serves as the chair and an instructor in CCC’s Computer Information Systems program, became a faculty member at CCC in 1998 and was promoted to chair in 2000.

Carter received a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Alcorn State University and a master’s degree in Business Administration/Accounting from Delta State University. She is a member of the Iota Delta Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.; a Sam Walton Fellow; and an Enactus sponsor.  Carter has served as the president of the Coahoma Faculty Association as well as CCC’s sophomore class sponsor for over ten years. She received a certificate from the Mississippi Community College Leadership Academy and was also recognized as CCC’s Higher Education Appreciation Day Working for Academic Excellence (H.E.A.D.W.A.E) honoree in 2003 and 2014.

In addition to giving her students an education, Carter tries to instill in them the importance of having a good work ethic. “Hard work and determination will pay off in the future,” she said.

This principle is mirrored in Carter’s favorite quote: “You have not because you want not. “

Carter is also an advocate of The Golden Rule.

“Treat people the way you want to be treated; leave everything else up to God,” she said.”

Carter’s favorite book is the Bible, and she also enjoys reading a variety of other genres, including fiction, horror, and self-improvement.  Her favorite past time is walking, which “helps clear the soul and the mind.”
