CLARKSDALE – Faculty and staff from Coahoma Community College’s Division of Career and Technical Education fellowshipped over a hot breakfast Friday morning as part of events planned in honor of National SKillsUSA Week.

Students in CCC’s Career and Technical Education programs are all members of SkillsUSA— a national organization comprised of students, instructors, and professionals that are committed to ensuring America has a skilled workforce.

According to organizer Shelia Sanders, support service coordinator in CCC’s Division of Career and Technical Education, the breakfast was designed to give thanks to all of the advisors in the Career Technical Division for their hard work, support and dedication in making SkillsUSA a success at CCC.

The breakfast, hosted at 9:30 a.m. in The Gallery, featured succulent, handmade salmon cakes by Joann Hoskins, culinary art instructor, with the help of CCC culinary art students, who are all SkillsUSA members.

Although Feb. 15 marks the end of the National SkillsUSA Week, activities at CCC will carry over into next week as inclement weather earlier this week caused some events to be rescheduled.

The “SkillsUSA Workshop” has been rescheduled for 9 a.m. Monday, Feb. 17, in The Gallery. Tuesday, Feb. 18, CCC SkillsUSA members will observe “Leadership Service Day” by volunteering to serve food and stock items at The Care Station in Clarksdale.

In addition to Culinary Arts, CCC’s SkillsUSA members includes students in the Automotive Mechanics, Barbering, Brick Block Masonry, Business & Office Systems, Carpentry, Collision & Repair, Computer Maintenance, Cosmetology, Early Childhood Education, Industrial Maintenance and Welding programs.
