Homecoming 2018

For many, homecoming is a chance to revisit their beginnings, to nostalgically travel back in time and stroll through heritage. At CCC, it’s an opportunity to return to the place where growth spurred. Alumni take the festivities as a chance to be reunited with old friends. This time around Tiger Nation will let the good times ROAR!

A diverse range of festivities flood this year’s line-up. From nighttime breakfast to parading, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

The week of high-spirited merriment, Sept. 30 - Oct. 6, will make its arrival on the Coahoma Community College campus on Sunday. In teams of three, students and employees alike will fight to be named the ‘winning team’ in a basketball tournament in the campus outdoor courtyard. A disc jockey is slated to set a cultural tone during the games.

The daylight of Monday, Oct. 1, brings students, faculty and staff together on the Coahoma campus to fellowship with one another at a food-sampling carnival. Additionally, health professionals will be providing information regarding trends in health issues prevalent in the Mississippi Delta. Healthcare experts plan to talk about preventive measures with attendees in a new set up of the annual FoodFest Carnival called “Tiger Health Habits.”

On Monday evening, the Coahoma Community College Choir and other performers will grace the stage of the Pinnacle with musical selections at the Gospel Festival. This year’s concert will feature widely-acclaimed, gospel artist from North Carolina, Donald Lawrence.

Academic departments and other clubs and organizations will spill out their inner maroon and white enthusiasm onto a crafty, creative scene that will be judged in a Spirit Display contest on Tuesday, Oct. 2. Students, fans and friends of CCC will build up excitement for the pep rally at 7:30 p.m. The football players will pass through a walkway of cheery fans which will lead the athletes into the Pinnacle. The rally will take the CCC family to the James E. Miller Stadium for a grand firework show of neon beauty. Students will wrap up the fun with a late night breakfast at 10 p.m. in the cafeteria of the Zee A. Barron Student Union.

On Wednesday morning, Oct. 3, CCC will observe Breast Cancer Awareness Month with a walk/run in pink clothing to honor those who have battled breast cancer or are currently fighting terminal illness. At 1 in the afternoon, Coahoma Early College High School will spotlight its royal court and crown Mr. and Miss CECHS. The night will cap off in a dynamic ‘Maroon Madness Xperience’ featuring up-and-coming rapper Kenny Muney. Students will also gather for a talent show and after party.

Grammy-Award nominated soul singer Kenny Lattimore is set to amaze with his impressive vocal ability at Thursday’s Presidential Gala. Attending guests will dance the night away to live music by the Smoove Experience Band. This event sells tickets of $100 per person. Ticket sales go toward students’ financial assistance through the CCC Foundation.

The CECHS football team will play their homecoming game against the North Panola High School Cougars on Friday, Oct. 5 while the CCC Tigers get their game face ready for their afternoon game on Saturday against the Hinds Community College Eagles. But before the Tiger win, CCC will show off floats in downtown Clarksdale during a homecoming parade starting at 10 a.m.

Homecoming week will end on the west side of the James E. Miller Stadium with a blues show. Mississippi-born crooner Nathaniel Kimble plans to entertain a lively audience at 5:30 p.m. Memphis, Tennessee hip-hop artist Tre$waii is also given time in the show to switch up the sound during the music event.
