Katina White, an instructor in the CCC Associate Degree Nursing program, holds a three-year tenure at the institution.

White strongly believes she is living in her purpose. Not just covering the nursing curriculum, she shares with students both the good and bad about her past work experience, so that they can adequately prepare themselves for their nursing careers. The Lambert, Mississippi, native also urges them to be genuinely concerned for those they serve.

It refreshes her to witness the maturation of her students by the time they graduate.

“I love that Coahoma gives opportunity to all,” says White. “Coahoma is a great start, equipped with everything you need for success if you are willing to do the work.”

Chosen the faculty Employee of the Month, White is pleased to be starting off her birthday month with “such an honor.”

Kimberly Collins-Bee has been an employee of Coahoma Community College, her alma mater, for 18 years.

As the director of Educational Talent Search, she serves 500 students from grades eighth through 12th. Bee is optimistic that, with the right guidance and support, the students will continue their education beyond high school and become successful.

“I often tell my students, that I am investing in their future because they will be the next doctors, lawyers, teachers, etc.,” said Bee.

“It’s a great feeling to see where they started in the program and what they accomplish when they graduate high school.”

Bee received her Associate of Arts degree from Coahoma Community College and a Bachelor of Science degree in mathematics from Mississippi Valley State University. She earned a master’s in curriculum, instruction, and assessment from Walden University.

“My favorite part of my job is the ability to work with students that want and need your help and the people I work with,” says Bee. She enjoys the aspect that CCC personnel are more like family than coworkers.

Assisting students in reaching their goals in life pushes her to go a new mile each year.

She has been married to her high school sweetheart Fernando Bee for 22 years. They have two sons; one of them is planning to attend CCC in the fall. God and family are her top priorities.

Bee is a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority. She loves to cook and travel with her family. Bee serves on a grand scale in her career field as the state president of the Mississippi Association of Educational Opportunity Program Personnel (MAEOPP). She also sits on the regional board of the Southeastern Association of Educational Opportunity Program Personnel (SAEOPP).
