CLARKSDALE – A Coahoma Community College student is set to represent the state of Mississippi during the 2015 National Leadership and Skills Conference June 22-27 in Louisville, KY.

Jammie Lynom, a Culinary Arts student from Clarksdale, MS, has been designated to carry the Mississippi flag along with representatives from other states during the opening ceremony of the national conference. Lynom was chosen for the honor after winning first place in the T-shirt Design Contest during the SkillsUSA North-Fall Leadership Conference at Northwest Mississippi Community College.

According to SkillsUSA Advisor Sheila Sanders, this is the first time a student from CCC has been assigned the honorary task.

“We are truly excited and honored for our division and the college to have someone to represent the State of Mississippi during the 2015 National Leadership and Skills Conference,” Sanders said. 

Joining Lynom in the action will be La’Jeremy Harris of Rosedale, who placed first in Collision & Repair during the state competition. Harris will be facing off with contenders from other states during the National SkillsUSA Competition.

Students in CCC’s Division of Career and Technical Education programs are members of SkillsUSA— a national organization comprised of students, instructors and professionals that are committed to ensuring America has a skilled workforce.

Fourteen CCC SkillsUSA students will be attending the National Leadership and Skills Conference.
