Rosie Miller, an instructor in Coahoma Community College’s Social Science Department, gives credit to the flexibility the institution offers its students to her own success.

“The greatest strengths of Coahoma in my opinion are the night and online classes. I’m a product of the night classes through West Tallahatchie High School,” said Miller, who first joined CCC’s faculty in 2004 as an adjunct professor.
“If it hadn’t been for those classes I wouldn’t have been able to go back to school while I worked full time and took care of my family. The night classes helped me a lot and I know they have helped a lot of hard working single parents who want better for their family, but can’t quit their job to go to school.”
Miller received an associate’s degree from CCC in General Studies before attending Delta State University where she graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Social Science Education and a master’s degree in Criminal Justice and Social Science Education.
As an instructor, Miller hopes that her own story serves as an inspiration to her students.

“The life lesson I have for my students is that you are never too old to learn and never give up when things get hard,” said Miller. “My life’s philosophies are to never give up and that you are never too old to learn something new.”
She also encourages students to persevere through the rough times in life.

“Life will throw a curve ball but that doesn’t mean turn around or quit it means fight harder for what you want,” she said.

Miller lists Alice by Lisa Genova as her favorite book. She also enjoys spending time with her family and most enjoys their monthly family night.
She finds inspiration in this quote from George Eliot, “It is never too late to be what you might have been.”
