JACKSON, Miss. – Coahoma Community College was among several community and junior colleges to travel to the state capitol Tuesday to attend the Mississippi Association of Community and Junior Colleges (MACJC) Legislative Appreciation Luncheon.
The annual event is a legislative advocacy effort designed to give members of the MACJC the opportunity to show legislators appreciation for their continued support.
During the buffet-style luncheon, prepared as a collaborative effort between MACJC culinary programs, CCC’s Culinary Arts program prepared and served Grilled Pimento Cheese Sliders.
CCC administrators and students were given the opportunity to fellowship with several local legislators, including Senator Robert Jackson (Marks, MS) and Reps. Orlando Paden (Clarksdale, MS), Robert E. Huddleston (Sumner, MS) and Cedric Burnett (Tunica, MS).
The event also served as a networking and learning opportunity for CCC student leaders who joined other state community college students to serve as volunteers.
