FULTON, Miss. (WCBI)-Itawamba Community College ranks in the top 150 community colleges out of 37 states.
Aspen Institute for Excellence Program awarded ICC for the second time.
The award was based on college performance such as certificates and graduation rates.
The award also allows the college to apply for a $1 million grant.
ICC President says receiving this award along with six other community colleges in the state shows how Mississippi’s education has come.
“While we are in competition with them I think it’s just obvious that Mississippi has a great community college system that is recognized by seven being able to apply for this prize,” says Mike Eaton.
ICC was awarded back in 2013.
