Twenty-two-year-old Heston Harrison was a successful student who graduated from both high school and college with honors. But like many others his age, he was still unsure of his long-term career goals and where his interests lay.

While applying for various jobs post-graduation, Harrison was referred by a counselor to South Mississippi Planning and Development District's (SMPDD) WIOA Youth program at East Central Community College.

Due to the increasing threat of severe weather in our area tomorrow, Wednesday, April 10, all East Central Community College campuses and offices will be closed. However, classes will be virtual. Students, please check your Canvas accounts for announcements/coursework from your instructors.

Due to the risk of severe weather throughout the area, our Junior Preview Days, originally scheduled for April 9 and April 10, 2024, are being rescheduled to Fall 2024 in conjunction with our first home football game. Additional details will be made available closer to that date.
