Why Drafting & Design? Here's what our students say ...
It's one thing for us to tell you why attending East Mississippi Community College is a good idea.
It's another for our students to tell you why they chose EMCC and how it worked out. So, here are some links to stories from Lion Country, told by the students who lived them.
|The skills I needed to realize my dream ...
The father of three, Carlton Ray Hollis Jr. returned to school at EMCC and earned an Associate's Degree in Drafting & Design Technology in spring 2013 ... all while working full-time. And he capitalized on his education before he even graduated, hiring on with an engineer in Starkville and doing freelance CAD work from home.
Why EMCC? I'm connecting my past to my future ...
Todd Eck of Sturgis is studying Drafting & Design at EMCC. "I started to think about my education when the housing market started to collapse a few years ago. I became unemployed after being in this business for 20 years," Todd said. "I chose the Drafting and Design field because of the close parallel to the work I had been doing for most of my life."
