Former casino workers look for new path at Coahoma Community College
In a continued effort to reach out to those workers affected by the recent closing of Harrah’s Casino in Tunica, Coahoma Community College is offering several educational opportunities that can lead to a career in healthcare, one of the nation’s fastest growing industries.
Harrah’s Casino closed June 2. About 200 of those employees lived in CCC’s service area, which includes Coahoma, Bolivar, Quitman, Tunica and Tallahatchie counties. Beginning July 1 and continuing through Aug 11, CCC is also offering manufacturing training at it’s Workforce Development Center to interested dislocated workers. Now, the college is reaching out to those employees interested in pursuing careers in healthcare—particularly those who may already be trained as Emergency Medical Technicians.
