The purpose of CCC’s Employee of the Month program is to recognize and reward faculty and staff who exhibit work and behaviors that support and further the mission, goals, values and initiatives of Coahoma Community College.
CCC faculty and staff can submit nominations. The nominee must be a full-time employee. A committee, chaired by CCC Director of Employee Services Michael Houston, is responsible for reviewing nominations and selecting a faculty and a staff honoree. The nominees are judged based on attitude and commitment, interpersonal skills, work performance, and personal traits.
Each Employee of the Month winner will receive a picture, a designated parking spot, a shirt from CCC’s Bookstore, a hair style or cut courtesy of CCC’s Cosmetology/Barbering Department, marquee announcement and website recognition.
