This year, the Steering Committee for Tishomingo County School District Mississippi Scholars and Mississippi Scholars Tech Master honored 36 seniors from Belmont High School and Tishomingo County High School on Monday, May 2nd. The evening ceremony was held at the Fellowship Christian Retreat at Crow’s Neck.
Seniors meeting the increased academic criteria and additional requirements received the distinguished recognition with a medallion, seals for the high school transcript and high school diploma along with a certificate.
Superintendent Christie Holly stated, ““We are so excited for these students and proud of their accomplishments. We want this program to grow in the future, and we will actively seek out business, industry, and community partners over the summer to fully implement a district-wide program that promotes these honors to students and parents. We are appreciative of the business, industry, and community support we received in our first event, but we want this to become a greater partnership in the future”.
66 Mississippi Scholar Tech Master Students Graduate from Pascagoula-Gautier School District Schools
Pascagoula High School - 43 Graduates
Gautier High School - 23 Graduates
The Pascagoula - Gautier School District is committed to Career Technical Education. The CCTI (College & Career Technical Institute) currently has 14 programs and is adding 2 to 3 new programs in upcoming years.
Next year, they are piloting the Computer Engineering class, partnering with the City of Moss Point, Jackson County, Huntington Ingalls Shipbuilding and the Gulf Shipbuilding Consortium on starting a program at Ingalls Shipbuilding, the Shipbuilding Academy, available to seniors who have completed two years of a CTE program. There is an articulation agreement with MGCCC that students completing two years of a CTE program and having an overall "B" average receive full tuition to MGCCC in a CTE program of study.
This is the third year of the Mississippi Scholars Tech Master program in the school district, and the number of participants has increased each year as Career Technical Education becomes more of a focal point in the community and throughout the state.
The CCTI has partnered with the University of Southern Mississippi, creating a Teacher Academy scholarship for students completing two years of Teacher Academy and meeting certain criteria. William Carey University has matched that scholarship.
The district's engineering program has also partnered with Mississippi State University, NASA and Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College as well with two engineering degrees being offered through MSU at the Jackson County campus.
