CLARKSDALE – Coahoma Community College students, alumni and community members are invited to come enjoy a fresh cup of coffee while engaging in insightful conversation during the latest Coffee with Entrepreneurs series.
Sponsored by the Division of Enrollment and Student Services’ Career Services and Placement, the latest free event is scheduled for 10 a.m. Monday, April 27 in the Career Center, located on the second floor of the Zee A. Barron Student Union and will feature Jessica Catchings, staff attorney with the Mississippi Center for Justice of Jackson, MS.
According to organizer Trina Cox, CCC’s coordinator of career services and placement, Catchings will present those in attendance with valuable information about fair housing and what qualifies for expungement in Mississippi all while networking over coffee.
“A criminal conviction can carry a lifetime of consequences, making it difficult to obtain employment or even housing,” said Cox. “Everyone makes mistakes every once in a while, but that doesn’t mean they deserve to be penalized for a lifetime, and a criminal record does just that. This is a great opportunity to educate those individuals, their families and the community on what could essentially be a second chance at life.”
Coffee with Entrepreneurs is an on-going series designed to give CCC students the opportunity to connect with other students and community members over coffee while networking with successful local entrepreneurs.
