CLARKSDALE – Area high school students learned why Coahoma Community College is the key to unlocking their futures Tuesday morning during CCC’s annual High School Day.

More than 1,000 students from 17 area high schools attended the event designed to showcase Coahoma’s diverse Academic, Athletic and Career and Technical programs in an effort to recruit future Tiers.

“We wanted to give our area high school students, as well as those outside of our five county district, an idea of what we have to offer academically as well as career wise,” said CCC Director of Admission Michael Houston.

Ray Brooks High School faced off against Coahoma County High School through three rounds that ended with Coahoma County walking away with the grand prize of $250.

Also, among the dozens of door prizes given away during the event was a new cellular phone, generously donated by C Spire Wireless of Clarksdale, to West Tallahatchie High School senior Venarious Bowman. Bowman said he plans to attend CCC next fall to major in Physical Education.

Students were given the opportunity to showoff their school spirit during roll call, lead by Anglea Collins of the Computer Information Systems/Business Department. They also learned about the various programs, departments and scholarship opportunities that are made available to CCC students at display tables lined across the floor of the Pinnacle.

Other features included exciting performances by CCC’s Show Choir, Women’s Ensemble, Men’s Ensemble as well as CCC and Coahoma Agricultural High School Marching Band.

Houston said he hopes the students left with the message that all the keys to their future are at CCC.

“Whatever it is the student hopes to accomplish, it can all start right here at CCC,” he said. “We have the programs that can help get you started towards a bachelor’s degree. We have the program sto train you for the workforce.

“No matter if the student has already picked a major or if they’re still undecided—we have the qualified faculty and staff here to help you unlock your future.”
