Two Cleveland Career Development and Technology (CCDT) seniors — John Nick Delahoussey and Kelsey Jackson — graduated as Mississippi Tech Master Scholars in the spring semester of 2020.
Tech Master Scholars have to meet stringent criteria, including having at least a 2.5 GPA, four CTE credits within the same program, 95% attendance throughout grades 9-12, no disciplinary issues and at least 40 hours of community service.
Both students not only excelled in the classroom, but also in local and state competitions in their respective student organizations: SkillsUSA, HOSA — Future Health Professionals and the National Technical Honor Society.
“We are so proud of Kelsey and Nick. They truly exemplify how students can take the CTE pathway to their chosen career field,” said Monica Mitchell, CCDT director.
Kelsey is the daughter of Rosaland Richardson and Tracy Jackson and is attending Hinds Community College and majoring in forensic sciences. Nick is the son of Tony and Kristin Delahoussey and is attending Mississippi Delta Community College and majoring in nursing.
