“Coahoma Community College is truly a treasure for Clarksdale and the surrounding areas, as well as the entire Mississippi Delta. I am honored to be afforded the opportunity to highlight the countless possibilities CCC offers its students and showcasing the positive impact the college is making in the community,” she said.

“The faculty and staff here have been very warm and welcoming. I’m looking forward to building a great working relationship with my colleagues.”
