MSU president visits Coahoma
Mississippi State University President, Dr. Mark Everett Keenum took time from his busy schedule Monday afternoon while visiting Clarksdale to speak with students in Coahoma Community College’s Alpha Omicron Pi Chapter of the Phi Theta Kappa honor society on the heels of their induction ceremony last week that welcomed 20 new members.
Keenum brought with him a message about the future … a future in which he hoped that CCC student would be an intricate part of.
“The challenges of our future are huge, and you are going to play a big part in how that future turns out,” said Keenum. “Our population will increase in the next 20 years by another 2.5 billion people, and we are going to have to have to feed them, educate them, provide health care for them, and it’s quite possible that you could address one of these critical challenges that we face.”
