The Housing department of the Division of Student Engagement welcomes three dormitory managers. Shemika Wortham serves as the new supervisor of Martin Hall. Ronald Miller, who joined the staff in the spring, is the assistant director of Housing and the manager of the all-male dorm, Friends Hall. James Winters was recently hired as the manager of Moore Hall.

Shemika Wortham, a native of Lyon, Mississippi, is the proud mother of three beautiful daughters whom she regards as her motivation, primary sources of inspiration, and her biggest supporters. She aims to serve as an excellent example for them daily.

"I have to lead them on the right path," she says.

Wortham has completed Coahoma's EKG, Phlebotomy, and Nursing Assistant programs.

A motivational message she would like to leave with students is, "Why give up today? Today may be the day you win!"

Ronald Miller, a native of Clarksdale, Mississippi, is the proud father of one daughter and one son. He received an associate degree in criminal justice from Coahoma Community College and a bachelor's degree from Mississippi Valley State University in 2002.

"Everybody's like family," he said, describing the atmosphere of the College's campus. He is delighted to be serving the institution that connected him to quality education. Miller believes consistency is what grants lasting success.

"Success is what motivates me to do a good job," Miller says. "The fact that my hard work and perseverance will help me achieve greater professional success is what keeps me going."

When it comes to the students, safety is his No. 1 priority.

James Winters, who is also from Clarksdale, is the father of one adult son, Jamal McGregory. He strongly believes teamwork makes the dream work. "It's all about workmanship," Winters says.
