Coahoma Community College is mourning the untimely death of Shan’Michaele’ Stamps, a resident of Grace, Miss. Stamps passed away Thursday, February 22, 2018, in a fatal car accident.

Shan’Michaele’ was enrolled in CCC’s Practical Nursing program and showed promise of becoming a dynamic healthcare professional.

Stamps was active in her community and was one of the first members of Girls, Achieving, Leading & Succeeding (G.A.L.S). The mentoring program is aimed at supporting young girls who attend South Delta High School and the surrounding community.

The CCC Practical Nursing Program will truly miss the presence Stamps brought and provided this departmental statement:

“Shan’Michaele’ Stamps was an exceptional student, who exuded commitment and determination. She was the type of student you knew had plans for her life and made moves to make those plans come true. Dedication and earnestness were just two qualities she embodied every day. Ms. Stamps drove 250 miles round-trip in pursuit of her education. She was rarely late and always attentive in class.  Quietly going about the business of learning how to be a nurse, she focused her energies on seeking the knowledge, skills, and abilities to be the best nurse she could become. The expression written on her face during lectures was one of “I’m listening, I hear you, tell me more!” She brightened our days with her beautiful smile and laughter. Shan’Michaele’ was a model student, achieved good grades, always had a great attitude, and great presence. She was a joy to teach. She will be missed.”

Grief counseling services are available to any student, faculty, or staff member and can be sought in the Zee A. Barron Student Union.

Funeral arrangements will be announced when finalized. CCC is planning to honor her life on campus for students, faculty, staff and community members.
