Madisosn Palmer Pizza Party

The 2019 graduating class of Quitman County’s Madison Shannon Palmer High School was recently declared the winner of a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) Completion Challenge hosted by Coahoma’s Office of Financial Aid.

Geared toward all surrounding high schools in CCC’s five-county service area—Coahoma, Bolivar, Tallahatchie, Tunica and Quitman County, the challenge was announced at the beginning of the year. The department promised to throw a free pizza party for the high school with the highest percentage of completed federal aid applications by March 31. As a result, Madison Shannon Palmer High students were recently treated to a celebratory spread of pizza, chips and cookies prepared by Financial Aid personnel.

The Office of Financial Aid sends special thanks to sponsors of the pizza party, the CCC Foundation and the Division of Student Engagement.

Shanelle Frazier who serves as the student employment coordinator in the Financial Aid Office said she believes the FAFSA Challenge Completion Campaign was a good idea because it challenged students to put extra effort into submitting the application early.

“When looking at the FAFSA tracker provided by the Get2College organization, several schools in our service county area had an increase. Our winner, the Madison S. Palmer High School Class of 2019, had the biggest increase and we were so excited to celebrate with them at the pizza party,” said Frazier.

“We look forward to working with the high schools in the near future and continuing to serve those students with financial aid assistance."
