CLARKSDALE — Coahoma Agricultural High School seniors were treated to breakfast and lunch on Thursday. And, in between the delicious meals, they were also informed of the many diverse and cutting-edge programs that are available for them at Coahoma Community College by CCC administrators.

With just a few days left before graduation, the Aggie seniors were given some advice from Coahoma President, Dr. Valmadge Towner, who told them to set goals and be steadfast in their pursuit of them.

“You need to develop a plan and be resilient … in fact you should develop a few plans in case your Plan A doesn’t work out,” Towner told the seniors. “Make those plans be more than playing professional sports, and being in the music industry, because the truth is that less than 1 percent of high school athletes get a chance to play in the NBA and only 3 percent get a chance to play in college.

“I know that many of you have a plan to try and get out of the Delta to go to school, but I want you to know that CCC can be used as a vessel to get you anywhere you want to go in life, and there are many benefits to attending school here,” Towner continued. “Coahoma can provide you a quality and convenient education, and also a very cost-effective one. You can leave here debt free … (the faculty and administrators) just want you all to know about the opportunities that right under your nose.”

The seniors are set to graduate May 23rd.
