Lamb Resigns as CCC’s Vice-President
CLARKSDALE – Coahoma Community College said goodbye to one its administrators Friday with the resignation of Rosemary Craven Lamb.
Lamb has served as CCC’s Vice-President for Institutional Effectiveness and SACS Liaison for the past ten years, and served as Tech Prep Coordinator in the Career-Technical Education Division for four years prior to that. She will now be continuing her career at Mississippi Delta Community College where she will serve as the Accreditation Officer and Associate Vice President for Institutional Effectiveness.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Coahoma Community College for believing in me and supporting me during my fourteen-year tenure,” said Lamb. “I will continue to be a supporter of this great institution. I will always have my Tiger stripes, regardless of where God leads me in the future.”
Lamb received her B.S. in English Education from Delta State University in Cleveland, MS, and her master’s degree in Educational Leadership from the University of Mississippi in Oxford. She is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Urban Higher Education at Jackson State University with an anticipated completion date of December of 2015.
Before her position at CCC, she taught secondary Language Arts in high schools across the Mississippi Delta region including the Coahoma County School District where she chaired the Language Arts Department and was selected as District Teacher of the Year in 1998.
In 2011, Lamb led CCC through a successful reaffirmation of accreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission and Colleges (SACSCOC), that resulted in zero findings and numerous commendations. As a result, she was asked to serve on the 2011 Planning Committee for the SACSCOC Annual Conference and has since been invited regularly to serve as an accreditation reviewer for the Commission on Colleges at institutions of higher learning across the southern United States.
Lamb has presented at various national and state conferences including the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, American Association of Community Colleges, Student Affairs Association for Mississippi’s Community Colleges, Academic Officers Association for Mississippi’s Community Colleges, Southeastern Association for Community College Research, and the Mississippi Association of Institutional Research.
In addition, Lamb is a past president of the Mississippi Association of Institutional Research and on the Board of Directors for the Southeastern Association for Community College Research. She currently serves on the Board of Directors for Coahoma County's Industrial Foundation and the Youth Leadership Clarksdale program.
"She has been a versatile, energetic and dependable colleague for many years at Coahoma Community College,” said President Dr. Valmadge Towner. “Her eagerness, contributions and work ethic will permit us to hold a notion of gratitude to her for many years to come. "
