CLARKSDALE – For the first time in Tiger history, Coahoma Community College is participating as part of the Miss Mississippi franchise to determine who will represent the college as its next queen.
Slated for 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 11, in the Pinnacle, the 2016 Miss. CCC Pageant promises to be a night to remember as three contestants compete in several categories, including evening wear, on stage question, talent and swimsuit.
Contenders for the crown include Hertayshia Thomas of Friars Point, MS; Cortise Brown of Jackson, MS; and Kameshia Hardy of Drew, MS.
In addition to the competition rounds, the young ladies must complete a preliminary interview, as well as present a platform that addresses a community service project.
“We are excited about the candidates running for Miss Coahoma Community College 2016-2017,” said CCC Assistant Director of Enrollment and Student Services LaShasa Griffin. “These young ladies are energetic and ready to display Tiger pride as they compete for Miss Coahoma Community College.”
Griffin said the recent visits of Miss Mississippi 2013 Chelsea Rick and Miss Mississippi 2014 Jasmine Murray fueled CCC’s Division of Enrollment and Student Services, who oversees the student leadership position, to join the franchise.
“This will be the first time in the history of Coahoma Community College that the winner will have the opportunity to participate in a pageant of this magnitude,” said Griffin. “We are excited to be involved.”
In addition to the opportunity to represent the college in the prestigious role of Miss CCC, the winner will advance to participate in a preliminary competition for the Miss Mississippi Pageant where they will have the chance to compete for a $10,000 scholarship.
Griffin encourages the campus, as well as the public, to come out and show their support the free event.
“We are overjoyed with the representation of students wanting to be involved at Coahoma Community College, and we’re looking for great things from these young ladies who are more than capable to represent the college in this year of the rise of the Tiger,” said Griffin.
