Pre-professional day brings students and institutions together

MERIDIAN —     Morgan Lee of Meridian, a second year student at Meridian, has a career goal of becoming a pharmacist.

    Thanks to Meridian Community College’s ninth Annual Pre-Professional Day, held Tuesday in the College's Multi-Purpose Center, she got the opportunity to talk one-on-one with school officials to learn more on how to do just that.

    Lee was one of 260 local high school and community college students who took part in the college’s event in which educational officials from Mississippi State’s colleges of engineering and veterinary medicine and the University of Mississippi’s schools of medicine, dentistry and pharmacy talked about the requirements, expectations and opportunities available.

    Dr. Angie Carraway, MCC chemistry instructor and principle coordinator of the event, said the day went exceptionally well for both the student and the college officials. Chelsea Bennett, assistant dean for student services at the University of Mississippi School of Pharmacy, too, was pleased about the session and the turnout.

    “We love visiting and meeting with students from this area … they come our way very prepared,” she said.
