CLARKSDALE –Students from Coahoma Community College’s Division of Career and Technical Education recently received the most awards in Tiger history at the annual SkillsUSA state competition.
During the event, hosted Feb. 28 and March 1 in Jackson, MS, CCC competed against students from Mississippi’s 15 community colleges to prove their expertise in several career and technical education categories.
Tigers earned six silver medals and two bronze medals.
CCC SkillsUSA Advisor Shelia Sanders said the division is excited about the achievement.
“We are so proud of each and every student who competed in the competition this year,” Sanders said. “We are planning on awarding the students by taking them to the SkillsUSA Leadership Conference.”
All students in CCC’s 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.
