CLARKSDALE – What students think matters at Coahoma Community College and that was evident during a recent meeting hosted by the Division of Career and Technical Education.

Several students from the division’s Student Advisory Council met to share comments and suggestions during a meeting Thursday. The council, which meets twice each semester, is comprised of representatives from each of CCC’s Career and Technical programs. Council members were asked to start a dialogue with their peers and present the feedback during the meeting in an effort to make the overall experience of students at Coahoma Community College a better one.

“It’s important that we give our input to help improve Coahoma and make it a better everyday experience for our fellow students,” said student Earnest Martin, president of the organization. “It makes me feel good to have the opportunity to let my voice be heard and shows that Coahoma cares about the students and how we feel.”

During the meeting, students shared their comments and suggestions with advisors Mary Wilson, special population personnel, and Charles Butler, Career-Technical counselor. They, in turn, will share the feedback with members of CCC’s administration.

“Our purpose is to make things better for you. We want you to love getting up in the morning to come to class,” Wilson said to the students during the meeting. “We want make sure that you’re proud to come to CCC, and that you’re receiving top-notch instruction so that when you leave here you’ll be ready to enter the workforce.”

The council discussed a variety of topics ranging from student recreation to classroom instruction. Butler assured them that their feedback did not fall on deaf ears.

“We received some really good comments and suggestions of improvements that can be made to make CCC better. We’re always striving to give our students the best possible experience,” Butler said.
