Math & Science Scholars

The Coahoma Community College Department of Science and Math recently recognized a select group of students at its Annual Recognition Banquet.

Held on the Coahoma campus, the event aimed to honor those math and science students who have made significant academic achievements and participated in various programs throughout the year.

Nine scholars from within the department were awarded certificates of achievement, with six receiving special recognition for attaining grade point averages of 3.0 or higher.

Outgoing Miss Coahoma Community College, Tia Davis serenaded the group of onlookers; singing an inspirational message of faith.

Patricia Furdge, department chair – Department of Science and Math, is proud of the students and encourages them to push towards their dreams.

“We are so proud of our students. I know that our parents or those individuals that have been impactful in their lives have helped them reach these goals and accomplishments,” said Furdge. I am confident they will go forward and do well.

Dr. Maurice Furdge, internal medicine physician, served as the guest speaker for the event. He challenged the young scholars to do bold things in their paths moving forward.

“I want to first applaud you for your accomplishments. It’s easy to get caught up in the moment. You want to stay there,” said Furdge. “You can get fearful of moving forward to what’s next. Always move forward to what’s next.”

“There will always be people that will be naysayers, but that is needed. Get to a position of purpose because that is where your wealth and destiny is,” Furdge added.

Five students were recipients of a cash award and certificate for their participation in a NASA program as well.
