Supervisors transfer former Human Services Bldg to CCC
The Coahoma County Board of Supervisors officially transfers the former Coahoma County Department of Human Services Building on Ohio Ave to Coahoma Community College for the expansion of CCC’s Allied Health Training Center located next door, according to Paul Pearson, board president.
Following renovation which Jerone Shaw, CCC special projects coordinator, estimates will take one year, the 8,900-square-foot building valued at $309,000 will provide classroom and laboratory space and for new and existing programs.
Dr. Martha Catlette, CCC vice president of health sciences, says classroom and laboratory space is “much needed” for polysomnography, the new associate paramedic degree program, and multiple health disciplines.
Participating in Monday’s property transfer are (front row from left) Dr. Catlette; Beverly Overton, assistant vice president of health science; Jerone Shaw; Dr. Vivian Presley, CCC president who is retiring June 30; Dr. Valmadge Towner, incoming new CCC president; and Johnny Newson, supervisor; (back row from left) Dr. Timothy Burrel, Dr. Roger Weiner, and Paul Pearson, supervisors; and Johnny McGlown, president of CCC’s Board of Trustees.
