Local Students to Get Career Coaching

Three local high schools are expected to benefit from a program to give more students access to career coaches.   The state is investing $8 million to put the coaches in 125 schools including Kosciusko High, Ethel High and Neshoba Central High School.  The program is being funded by federal COVID relief money. The one-on-one coaching is aimed at helping students realize the high-tech, high-skills jobs that are available here at home.  AccelerateMS says planning and development districts across the state will be responsible for hiring the coaches.
