EMCC Hands Out Awards at Scooba Campus

SCOOBA– East Mississippi Community College recognized outstanding students April 24 during its annual Scooba campus Awards Day program. Award winners were chosen by instructors as exemplary students.

Scooba campus counselor Jenny Box, who coordinated the Scooba campus Awards Day ceremony, said many of the students recognized will become familiar names in their respective communities in years to come.

“These students represent the best in their programs at EMCC. One day they’ll be the best in their field. And as many of our instructors pointed out today, these students are the doctors, the welders, the forestry experts, the optometrists of tomorrow. These students will do jobs that impact people on a regular basis, if not a daily basis. And we’re proud they chose to begin their careers at EMCC,” said Box.
