CLARKSDALE – Coahoma Community College’s Coahoma Male program is currently recruiting gentlemen of the Tiger Nation to become apart of the distinguished organization.

Founded in 2011, the Coahoma Male program is open to all male CCC students and strives to increase retention and graduation rates through personal, professional development and leadership development, civic engagement, and mentoring.

According to Advisor Patrick Johnson, the program is currently soliciting as many male students as possible before it hosts its first meeting for the semester later this month.

“Our aim is to help train these students to become productive young men and productive students in the community,” said Johnson. “We try to inspire them to do better.”

The Coahoma Male program began with the goal of providing retention services to male students at CCC and includes workshops that provide information on topics such as goal setting, professional dress, etiquette, dating and life after college.

The program also encourages high academic achievement, leadership and character development and works to foster a level of maturity so students will assume responsibility for thier academic success and personal conduct, as well as motivate their peers through their actions.

According to Johnson, the program is also a great way for the young men to give back to the community and perform community service hours.

“Past service projects have included mentoring youth, visiting the elderly, a canned food and clothing drive and a campus cleanup,” said Johnson. “Members have also participated in intramural sports, served as hosts for campus activities, and have been treated to a NBA game and a formal dinner.”

To join, interested male students must complete a membership application.

For questions or to register, contact Johnson at (662) 621-4825, by e-mail at pjohnson@coahomacc.edu or by visiting the tutorial lab located on the second floor of the Zee A. Barron Student Union.
