CLARKSDALE – An elegant evening down memory lane will end as an unforgettable night of music, dance and fellowship next week for Coahoma Community College students, faculty and students.
The Division of Enrollment and Student Services has announced plans to host its Mentor & Mentee Black and White Social at 9 p.m. Thursday, April 9, in the Pinnacle immediately following the 2015 Coronation of Mr. and Miss CCC.
The annual event is organized to promote CCC’s Communicating Opportunities through Mentoring Practices to Achieve Student Success (C.O.M.P.A.S.S.) program, which pairs CCC faculty/staff members with students to build relationships that foster the personal and professional growth of the student.
Organizers Renee’ Sanford, coordinator of counseling services, and Dian Thomas, residence hall manager, are inviting CCC students, faculty and staff to come out and enjoy a mixture of old school and today’s R&B performed by “The Little Biscuit Band” of Helena, AK who’ll be back again by popular demand. There’ll also be refreshments, door prizes and the opportunity to fellowship and network with other mentors and mentees on campus.
“There’s something for everyone,” said Sanford. “We’ll be mixing a little old with a little new so we’re looking forward to everyone coming out to help make this a grand event.”
Thomas said it’s not too late for those interested in the program to join.
“If you would like to become a mentor, it’s never too late to make a difference in a student’s life,” she said.
