The Lumina Foundation has selected the Mississippi Complete 2 Compete (C2C) program to showcase in their Beautiful Minds contest. C2C was selected for its success in helping adults return to college and complete their degrees.
C2C is competing against organizations in Kentucky and Pennsylvania for a $50,000 prize! C2C needs your help to win the award, so they can help more Mississippi adults return and finish their degrees.
C2C was one of only three initiatives selected nationally to have a video produced showcasing their programs. C2C's six-minute video serves as their entry into the Beautiful Minds competition and features the story of Krystal Austin, just one of thousands of adults in Mississippi who completed their degree with the help of the C2C program.
The three competing program videos are posted on YouTube. The video that receives the most "likes" will win $50,000! To vote simply CLICK below and give C2C a Thumbs Up (like).
The C2C program works within each Mississippi community college and public university. The program's mission is to increase the number of Mississippi adults with a degree or credentials of value.
To accomplish our mission we offer academic and financial support services to help adult learners who have earned college credits—but not a degree*—return and finish what they started.
The C2C program also provides returning adults one-on-one coaching support from application through graduation. Dedicated coaches are on staff at each of Mississippi’s eight public universities, 15 public community colleges, and the medical center.
