Alexia Phillips, of Jonestown, Mississippi, will serve the student body as the SGA’s student activities chair for the 2020-2021 school term. With physical aspects of the fall semester at Coahoma looking a little different due to the COVID-19 pandemic, she plans to override altered conditions with proactive strategies.

“Social media and technology are tomorrow in the present day,” Phillips noted.

With a love for attending church and gathering family and friends for events, she is having to rely on a virtual connection. Phillips has decided to take classes on campus this fall to be accessible to incoming students having to adjust to the College.

“Students of the institution usually spend a lot of time on social media and other technological platforms. We will meet them where they are and incorporate more interactive activities over the internet,” she explained.

“From engaging speakers on Zoom to the making of TikTok videos to represent school pride, we will continue to show that we Tigers can adapt to any environment, have versatility despite the pandemic at hand, and give students hope to keep pushing.”

An honor graduate of Coahoma Early College High School, Phillips is looking to take learning to the next level. Ultimately, her goal is to attain her associate degree in political science and advance to a university.

She proudly continued her grandfather’s legacy by choosing Coahoma.

Contrary to other students' outlook, the remote learning switch during the Spring 2019 semester came at the right time for Phillips. She could regain energy for school, viewing the move to online classes as a "blessing in disguise."

Students will take final exams and end the semester right before the Thanksgiving break this year.
