Center’s skill programs give students early start on careers students

 

For students interested in a trade career, the David Williams, Jr. Career and Technical Center is an affordable, easy way to get training while still in high school.  The center recently opened its doors for public tours on Nov. 12.  Inside were several programs for students to be creative, explore, and learn real-world skills for the 21st century.

Nearly 200 students from Tunica Middle School and Rosa Fort High School are currently taking advantage of the programs offered at the center, which is located between the high school and middle school campuses.  Skilled programs include Business Fundamentals, Construction Technology, Healthcare & Clinical Services, Automotive Services, Metal Fabrication, Cosmetology, Agriculture and Environmental Science Technology, Cosmetology, and Information and Computer Technology.

Beverlyn Daniels leads the Business Fundamentals program, which can serve as the economics requirement for students taking the course, Kabreca Henderson, student service coordinator, explained as she led a tour.

For the past couple of years, Robert Monroe has led the construction technology program, which consists of two classes over the course of two years.  Students can earn considerable hours toward becoming a licensed carpenter, mason, and/or plumber, he said.

Coaches fight in front of students

 

Video, pictures, and multiple news reports surfaced November 11 of an altercation at Rosa Fort High School between Edwin Norwood, head football coach, and Trosiki Pettis, assistant principal and athletic director. The two were seen tightly wrapped up, almost as if they were aggressively hugging, in both film and pictures that circulated.

“Get him, Norwood,” one student screamed in the video’s background as the tussle continued for several minutes.

An incident report filed by eyewitness Lieutenant Lamarris Jones of the Tunica County Sheriff’s Office detailed the situation as it happened.  Jones wrote that he saw Pettis give Norwood a letter and heard words being exchanged about “students not being monitored.”

The argument in the cafeteria was just the beginning.
