Northwest Mississippi Community College officials announced 106 graduates have been awarded the Technical Certificate for the spring 2022 semester. Certificates were officially awarded by Dr. Michael Heindl, Northwest president, on May 6, 2022, during the college’s 110th Commencement.
Andrew White of Pelahatchie is included on the list of graduates. White was a student at Pelahatchie High School.
The Technical Certificate is awarded to students completing a minimum of 45 hours in a specific technical program. It is designed to meet the educational needs of students who are seeking preparation for employment in occupational fields not requiring a four-year degree. Students must make a passing grade and average a minimum 2.0 grade point on those courses required in the curriculum.
