Tiffany WillamsTiffany Johnson-Williams has been employed with Coahoma Community College for more than 10 years. Welcomed aboard in the year 2005, Williams says there is a rewarding factor that comes from watching Adult Education participants increase their reading, language and math skills.

Williams works as the LACES manager, inputting pertinent data of non-traditional students upon their entrance into the Adult Education program at Coahoma’s off-campus Workforce Development Center, located at 510 Sunbelt Drive in Clarksdale.

Seeing the gradual growth of students and being able to go through the educational journey with them as they attain their High School Education has been amazing, Williams said.

Williams has been selected, for the month of February, the employee of the month from the body of staff at Coahoma.

“I am honored to have been selected,” she said. “When Mr. Houston called me and told me the news, the only thing I kept saying was ‘Wow.’ I am truly honored.”

Williams takes a delightful break from the hustle and bustle of work once a year while on vacation in Destin, Florida. She gets to relish in the natural beauty of the beach and loves, even more, the chance for her family and friends to “travel as a whole unit.”

For the past 13 years, life outside of work has pretty much revolved around her children’s extracurricular activities. However, when she does find time for herself, she enjoys going to the movies, spending time with friends and the intrinsic fun in traveling.

A mother of three sons and a daughter, Lewis, Torian, Justin and Tihanna, Williams is married to Lewis Williams III. Her parents are both alumni of Coahoma Community College.

Williams graduated from then Coahoma Agricultural High School in 1999. She received an associate’s degree in general studies from Central College and will soon pursue a bachelor’s degree from Mississippi Valley State University in August.

The Clarksdale native describes her co-workers as team players who have essentially become her family, an aspect that makes her job easier.

Williams’ father would leave with her a simple but wise message when he dropped her off at school in the mornings. The lesson she learned early on has helped mold her into a reputable individual.

“He always said that being nice does not cost a thing,” she said.

Kishki Hall

Dr. Kishki HallCleveland, Mississippi native Kishki Hall, Ph.D., has pocketed two wins within the first two months of 2019. Preceded by a Humanities Award recognition, Hall is the instructor chosen from Coahoma’s body of faculty to wear the employee of the month title for February.

She has two remarkable mentors who taught her and have become excellent role models during her teaching career. Edneatha White taught her at Eastside High School and Ms. Farmer taught her at MVSU; both have made a positive impact on her and inspired her to teach.

Holding a 14-year tenure as a public speaking instructor at CCC, Hall remembers playing teacher as a young girl.

“I used to walk around the house and I would set my teddy bears and dolls up and play teacher,” she said.

Hall is elated to have recently become a two-time champion at Coahoma.

“This is my winning season!” she said. “I truly feel appreciated. I also feel that God is giving me beauty for ashes!”

To unwind after a work day, she likes to tune in to the hit talk show “The View” and scroll through social media to find a good laugh. She also enjoys listening to gospel music and watching NBA basketball.

Hall organically inspires others through conversation.

“I’m always looking for a way to encourage people,” she said. “I just believe in being who I am, unapologetically me.”
