The Career and Technical Education (CTE) division recently held its advisory committee meeting to share suggestions for continued CTE success at Coahoma Community College. After a hearty greeting from President Valmadge Towner, committee members received updates from Dean Anne Shelton-Clark on recent achievements in the division.

Barber/Stylist instructors Jesse Nunley and Reginald Thomas received their Barbicide certification which allows them to teach their students sterilization, sanitation and decontamination techniques.

The division received a non-traditional grant from the Mississippi Community College Board.  With the grant, the CTE department was able to host a male summit centered on building a positive mindset and leadership skills in young males.

Clark also recognized sophomore Kelly Williams, who is enrolled in the Culinary Arts program, for ranking no. 16 in the national SkillsUSA competition.

Commercial Truck Driving Technology instructor Solomon Gray was credited for building the truck driving program from the ground up.

“Under his leadership, we have had great success with the program,” said Clark.

While enjoying an open dialogue session, CTE programs met with their respective craft committee members.  Discussions included curriculums, newest trends in business and industry, equipment and hiring needs.
