CLARKSDALE – Students in one Coahoma Community College Career and Technical Education program will be receiving some hands-on training without ever leaving the classroom thanks to a generous donation.
Pharmedium Services, LLC of Cleveland, MS, the nation’s leading provider of compounded sterile preparations, recently donated a Shrink Band Line to CCC’s Industrial Maintenance Technology program, designed to prepare students for entry-level employment as multi-skilled maintenance technicians.
The machine is used by the company to place shrink bands onto syringes.
CCC Dean of Career and Technical Education Anne Clarke said the donation is valuable piece of material that was given at no cost to the institution.
“We are most grateful to Pharmedium for donating this equipment to our students,” said Clark. “This allows us to expose our students to hands-on training inside of the classroom that they otherwise wouldn’t be able to receive.”
Instructors Earl Walker and Earnest Bell said it’s a great training tool to help students master skills such as troubleshooting, electricity and pneumatics.
“Our goal is to increase employability for our graduates not only at Pharmedium, but with any industry of their choosing,” said Bell.
“We truly thank our (Anne Shelton-Clark) for giving us the opportunity to accept this donation,” added Walker.
Walker said the equipment will be hooked up and ready to use by next week.
