CLARKSDALE – Delta State University President William LaForge personally visited Coahoma Community College Tuesday to court Tigers into becoming Fighting Okras once they’ve graduated.
“I’m here because this is where the good students are. …We want to roll out what we call our “green carpet” for you,” said LaForge to the more than 100 CCC students, faculty and staff gathered in the Magnolia Room of the Zee A. Barron Student Union for the “meet and greet” event.
LaForge, the second year President of the 3,600-student university, used the opportunity to review the various majors and unique programs offered at his institution as well as to offer a look into student life and campus organizations.
A representative from DSU’s Office of Admissions, Diana McLemore, was also on hand to discuss admission requirements and available scholarships and financial assistance programs.
“Classroom instruction is out first priority. …I believe that Delta State could possibly be the right fit for you. As you consider your senior college possibilities, it’s my plea to you today, to put us on your list of considerations” said LaForge before opening for questions.
CCC President Dr. Valmadge Towner said he looks forward to continuing and growing CCC’s partnerships with DSU in the future.
“We are so delighted to host President LaForge. He is a special and unique individual who has shown a keen interest in Coahoma,” said Towner. “Delta State is a reputable school and we’re so happy
to have him recognize the dynamite students we have here and show an interest in them.”
