CLARKSDALE – A Coahoma Community College instructor spent time last week sharing knowledge with students at the David Williams Jr. Career and Technical Center about Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) careers and how CCC can help each of them achieve their goals.

CCC Business and Computer Information Systems (CIS) Instructor Jeremy Pittman traveled to Tunica, MS Friday to speak with students in two of the center’s STEM classes, under the instruction of STEM Instructor Jovon Stiffin.

During the visit, Pittman introduced students to research regarding STEM careers as a lucrative, stable career choice.

“STEM careers have the ability to lift our fellow citizens out of poverty and move them to higher levels of career success and financial independence,” said Pittman. “With over 3 million jobs in the U.S. related to the STEM fields, we should do everything to encourage students to enter these challenging yet rewarding fields.” 

Pittman also used the opportunity to share with students how Coahoma Community College could help them achieve their educational goals. 

“While students have many choices to continue their education, we hope students will choose Coahoma Community College to ‘Discover… Grow… and Excel’… in their educational endeavors.”

In addition to gaining some valuable information, the students also enjoyed a game of STEM Career Jeopardy, designed to engage introduce them to wide array of STEM careers.
