Northeast Pieces Together Another Rugged Baseball Schedule
Release Date:1/9/2017
Northeast Mississippi Community College

BOONEVILLE, Miss. - The Northeast Mississippi Community College baseball program has become accustomed to consistently playing against the best competition in the entire country.

Things will be no different for the Tigers as they compete against five teams that finished inside the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Division II poll last season, including three top 10 squads, as part of their upcoming 2017 slate.

“We try to put a pretty tough schedule together,” said Northeast head coach Richy Harrelson. “Junior college baseball has come a long way in the last 10 years and there’s a lot of good competition out there. You don’t get a day off.”

The Tigers open the campaign at the friendly confines of Harold T. White Field for the second consecutive year when Calhoun (Ala.) Community College comes to town on Saturday, February 4.

Northeast alternates home and away dates during the first full month of the season. Among the opponents journeying to the City of Hospitality in that stretch are defending state champion East Central Community College and Southwest Tennessee Community College.

March begins for the Tigers on the fourth with a pair of matchups in Millington, Tenn., at the Babe Howard JUCO Classic. Northeast plays Parkland (Ill.) College inside historic USA Stadium and then completes tournament play versus Lake Land (Ill.) College.

The Tigers wrap up non-conference action with a home-and-home series with Blue Mountain College’s junior varsity squad. It will be the first-ever games on the diamond between the two local institutions.

The Mississippi Association of Community and Junior Colleges (MACJC) portion of Northeast’s agenda starts on Saturday, March 18 with a road trip to Hinds Community College.

Mississippi Delta Community College serves as the Tigers’ initial league doubleheader in Booneville on Wednesday, March 22. Northeast then christens a season-long eight-game home stand six days later by welcoming Coahoma Community College.

Reigning national champion Jones County Junior College visits the Tigers during that span on Saturday, April 1. Northeast hosts Itawamba Community College on Wednesday, April 5 in the only meeting this campaign between the two archrivals.

The Tigers will celebrate and honor their stellar sophomore class on Saturday, May 6 in the final home twinbill of the campaign versus Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College.

“We’re going to have a good spring this year,” Harrelson said. “I really like this team. I’ve enjoyed being around the guys this fall just watching them grow as men. People need to come out and watch us play. They’re going to enjoy it.”

Northeast must prepare for an altered playoff format for the second time in three years. The MACJC State Tournament has been eliminated and the team that finishes in first place during the regular season will be crowned as the state champion.

The top nine squads advance to the NJCAA Region 23 Tournament. The teams seeded two-through-nine will compete in a first round best two-out-of-three series at four different on-campus sites from May 11-13 while the MACJC titleholder receives a bye.

The four opening round victors, the state champion and Louisiana State University at Eunice will then come together for a six-team double elimination regional competition between May 18-21 with the winner advancing to the NJCAA Division II World Series.

Coahoma Community College

CLARKSDALE — Coahoma Community College is happy to announce the mid-year signings of former Mississippi State commit Drelan Porter as well as Troy University transfers Damien and Demone Kemp. All three are expected to make major contributions to the Tiger team in 2017.

A 6-4, 200 lb. defensive end from South Panola, Porter committed to Mississippi State over Ole Miss, Memphis, and Southern Miss (among other offers) after receiving a 4-star rating from rivals.com. He racked up 132 solo tackles and 16 sacks from his sophomore to senior year at South Panola.

Porter sat out last season, and, with the help of Coahoma football coaches, has earned eligibility for the 2017 season. He will join a defense that returns All-American DB Antonio Nelson and which has already added Southern Florida transfer Cecil Cherry and East Carolina transfer Javontay Smith.

Damien and Demone Kemp will transfer to Coahoma from Troy University. Damien is an offensive lineman who twice earned all-state and all-region honors at Green County High School. He The 6-6, 294 lb. offensive lineman recorded 38 pancake blocks during his final year at Green County before redshirting in 2015 at Troy.

Damien will be joined by his brother Demone, who also earned All-State honors at Green County High in Greensboro, Georgia.

"Drelan Porter brings another level of athleticism to Coach Miller's front 4. His ability to rush the passer brings more speed and quickness off the edge," said offensive coordinator Moses Harper. "Demone Kemp also gives good athleticism plus size to help beef up the interior D-Line for Miller's front four. Adding Damien Kemp to the 'Big Nasties' offensive line brings size, athleticism, and Division 1 experience to Coahoma's O-Line."

The Tiger program will enter its second season under head coach Steven Miller and his staff in the fall of 2017.

Total Of 115 PRCC Students Receive 2016 PRVEPA Round Up For Education Scholarships
Release Date: 11/3/2016
Pearl River Community College

POPLARVILLE – A total of 115 Pearl River Community College students from throughout Pearl River Valley Electric Power Association’s 12-county service area are receiving scholarships of $935 to attend PRCC this year, thanks to the generous spirit and support of the Association’s member-consumers.

More than 200 students from throughout PRVEPA’s service area are receiving these scholarships to attend state community colleges.

This is the fourth year for the Round Up for Education scholar’s program, which is funded by members who round their bills up to the nearest dollar each month. Scholarships are available to members who do the round up, as well as for their spouses or dependent children who are enrolled as freshmen this fall.

“The efforts of the Pearl River Valley Electric Power Association to assist students from their service area in achieving a higher education is certainly paying great dividends for members of the Association,” said PRCC President William Lewis.

“Pearl River Community College has greatly benefited from the Association’s Round-Up Program with some 115 students attending the college this fall with scholarships made possible through this program. This effort is affording many students with opportunities that only a higher education can make possible. In turn, a more educated citizenry will enhance the economic and social well-being of our state. The positive benefits for the citizens of our region of Mississippi from this special program offered by Pearl River Valley Electric Power Association are immeasurable.”

PRVEPA serves more than 48,000 meters. Since the Round Up program began in November 2012, more than $840,000 has been collected and deposited in an account overseen by the Greater Pine Belt Community Foundation.

“Throughout our history, Pearl River Valley Electric has not only been providing electric service to rural areas, but working to improve the quality of life of our members and the communities where they live,” said General Manager Randy Wallace. “We believe that education is vital to improving the future for all of us in south Mississippi, and the Round Up program was designed to encourage more young people to further their education.

“Members working together to achieve a common goal is a unique hallmark of cooperative organizations, and I am proud of the positive response we’ve received on this effort. More than 90 percent of our members continue to round up their bills and we’re very thankful for their support.”

At least ten percent of each year’s funds are set aside in an endowed fund for future use. The remaining money is divided equally between the number of eligible applicants, resulting this year in 217 scholarships worth $935 per student (the maximum award per the program’s guidelines is $1000).

In the program’s four years, more than 780 students have now received scholarships.
“The PineBelt Community Foundation administers a variety of scholarship programs,” said Theresa Erickson, Executive Director of the Foundation. “The Round Up for Education Scholarship program is the largest scholarship program we manage. We often see how small contributions from large numbers of people can grow into significant amounts that benefit many individuals, and when people continue their education it not only benefits the individual, but it also benefits their family and ultimately their community.”

Round Up for Education funds collected after Aug. 1 go toward next year’s scholarships. Applications for 2017 scholarships will be available beginning this month.

MGCCC Cheer Finishes Third At National Championship
Release Date: 1/15/2017
Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College

Mississippi Gulf Coast’s first trip to the national cheerleading championship was a successful one.

The Bulldogs squad finished third in the Division II Small Co-Ed category at the UCA & UDA College Cheerleading and Dance Team National Championship on Saturday in Orlando.

It was a case of coming through in the clutch.

“They did great,” Gulf Coast coach Christy Bowman said. “We had no deductions in the semis. They completed the routine better than they’ve ever done it.”

Wilmington University and Grand Canyon University, who perennially are the top two teams in the division, finished 1-2. It wasn’t easy for Grand Canyon, though.

Gulf Coast had no deductions in its semifinals performance, while Grand Canyon dropped some points. That left the Bulldogs in second place.

“It was very competitive,” Bowman said. “Grand Canyon had to really work to get back to second.”

East Mississippi, the only other MACJC school competing in the division, finished fourth.

Gulf Coast brings home a team trophy and individual bronze medals. It also paves the way for bigger and better things.

The squad’s first competitive year ends on a very bright note.

“We made a name for ourselves for ourselves representing Mississippi Gulf Coast, Bowman said. “There were university coaches coming up to (assistant coach) Karlee (Nobles) and me saying that was the best routine and it was so clean. We’ve been hearing nothing but very positive things about Gulf Coast from other teams.

“Karlee and I are both so proud. We’re excited for this to be a traditional thing. We want to keep it going.”
