The Chawla Hospitality Academy, a hotel business training program launched in September by the Chawla Hotel company in connection with the Coahoma Community College Workforce Development division, is proud to have recently equipped eight graduates with a strong skill set after conducting its first training sessions.

The Chawla Hotel company, run by Suresh Chawla, is committed to developing hotel industry professionals who are able to offer exemplary service.

The Workforce Development Center offered four weeks of classes free of charge, Oct. 22 through Nov. 15, to interested individuals seeking training for the frontline positions of front desk agents, quality control inspectors, housekeepers and technical maintenance workers. Hotel manager Amy Peeples and Brian James, the dislocated workers coordinator for Workforce Development, conducted sessions on work ethics, hotel operations, interview skills, CPR training and Microsoft Word and Excel computer skills. Each graduate received a certificate of completion and an interview with Chawla Hotels.

Graduates of the program include Clarksdale natives Angelina Carr, Kieara Carr, Teresa Coley, Myisha Collins, Shareika Robinson; Jonestown natives Sharkita Roberts and Kimberly Suggs; and Greenwood resident Georgia Cross.

Chawla Hotels is the parent company for more than 15 Mississippi Delta hotels in Greenwood, Cleveland, Indianola, Grenada, Greenville and Yazoo City. Two of them are located in Clarksdale—Comfort Inn on South State Street and Hampton Inn on New Africa Road.
