Anderson Regional Medical Center is one of the first hospitals in Mississippi to utilize the world’s smallest pacemaker ...

Event Dates and Times

10/27/2017 - 11/27/2017
Anderson Regional Medical Center Meridian, MS
MERIDIAN, MS – October 27, 2017 – Anderson Regional Medical Center is one of the first hospitals in Mississippi to utilize the world’s smallest pacemaker in the treatment of patients with bradycardia, a condition characterized by a slow or irregular heart rhythm. Recently approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Micra® Transcatheter Pacing System (TPS) is a new type of heart device that provides patients with the most advanced pacing technology at one-tenth the size of a traditional pacemaker. Micra is the only leadless pacemaker approved for use in the U.S. The first procedure was performed at Anderson by Cardiovascular Institute of the South physicians, Dr. Attila Roka, Electrophysiologist, and Dr. Timothy Boyd, Interventional Cardiologist.

“In patients with bradycardia, the heart may beat fewer than 60 beats per minute,” said Dr. Boyd. “At this rate, the heart is unable to pump enough oxygen-rich blood to the body during normal activity or exercise, causing dizziness, fatigue, shortness of breath or fainting spells. Pacemakers are the most common way to treat bradycardia to help restore the heart's normal rhythm and relieve symptoms by sending electrical impulses to the heart to increase the heart rate,” continued Dr. Boyd.

Dr. Attila Roka said, “We elected to use the Medtronic Micra TPS because unlike traditional pacemakers, the device does not require cardiac wires or a surgical pocket under the skin to deliver a pacing therapy. This pacemaker is comparable in size to a large vitamin, which enables me to deliver it through a catheter and implant it directly into the heart. This is a safe alternative to conventional pacemakers without the complications associated with leads, and its cosmetically invisible.”

The Micra TPS is designed to automatically adjust pacing therapy based on a patient’s activity levels. It also incorporates a retrieval feature to enable retrieval of the device when possible; however, the device is designed to be left in the body. For patients who need more than one heart device, the miniaturized Micra TPS was designed with a unique feature that enables it to be permanently turned off so it can remain in the body and a new device can be implanted without risk of electrical interaction.

The Micra TPS is the first and only transcatheter pacing system to be approved for both 1.5 and 3 Tesla (T) full-body magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans, providing patients with access to the most advanced imaging diagnostic procedures available, if and when they need one.

ECCC PTK to Host Second Annual “Special Needs Prom”

Event Dates and Times

10/27/2017 - 11/3/2017
Pierce Castle located on Chapel Hill Road in Newton County
ECCC PTK to Host Second Annual “Special Needs Prom”

Theta Xi Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa, the international honor society of two-year colleges, at East Central Community College in Decatur will host “Fairy Tale Ball,” its second annual prom for special needs student, Friday, Nov. 3, 2017, at Pierce Castle located on Chapel Hill Road in Newton County.

Continuing the organization’s ‘Honors in Action’ program, which began last year, Theta Xi invited students who receive special services from schools in the ECCC district of Leake, Neshoba, Newton, Scott and Winston counties to attend the special event.
Each year, Phi Theta Kappa challenges local chapters to complete an ‘Honors In Action’ project and provides various themes from which to choose. Theta Xi chose ‘Myth vs. Reality’ as the theme and advisors basically came up with the idea because, working in their capacities at the college, they saw how some people view those with special needs as different, which is a myth. The idea was to do something to make them feel special and they felt like the students would enjoy a prom.
“It was such a big hit and the kids who attended last year begged for us to host it again. Although it is a lot of work to get sponsorships to fund the prom, it is so very worth it to see the smiles on the faces of the kids who attend,” said Dr. Amanda Walton, Theta Xi co-sponsor and ECCC’s director of housing and student activities.

Approximately 30 students attended last year’s inaugural event.

Theta Xi members raise the money to stage the prom through various fundraisers and the help of area businesses that have purchased sponsorships. Students and individuals throughout the community have also donated prom dresses.

Walton added, “The kids attending come absolutely free, will be served a meal and get prom party favors and our students serve as their dates.”

For more information on the second annual ECCC PTK “Special Needs Prom” and how you or your business can become involved, contact Walton at awalton@eccc.edu or call 601-635-6213. James Miller, dean of students, and Jenna Wright, mathematics instructor, also serve as Theta Xi sponsors.

ECCC Receives Families First Grant

Event Dates and Times

East Central Community College
ECCC Receives Families First Grant

East Central Community College in Decatur was recently awarded a Mississippi Crossroads Consortium Families First Grant to assist students in achieving the skills necessary for middle skill jobs.

“The training of middle skilled workers is crucial to Mississippi’s continued economic growth,” said Dr. Teresa Houston, ECCC vice president for instruction. “This Incentive to Success grant will incentivize students who meet their student obligations. The instructional methods that will be used are sound proven strategies that provide quality teaching and learning experiences with student support services. East Central is excited about the grant opportunity as it aligns with our institutional commitments of Teaching and Learning, Student Success, and Community Partnerships.”

The Crossroads Consortium was founded in 2013 and is a collaboration between East Central Community College and four other Mississippi community colleges – Hinds, Holmes, Meridian and Mississippi Delta – to provide incentives and financial assistance for students to obtain the education and credentials to qualify for middle skill jobs, which nearly all new companies and most existing companies in Mississippi need.

Four of the five consortium colleges submitted this proposal. MDCC decided not to participate in the project but is in full support of the other four consortium colleges and their efforts.

Dr. Lucretia Williams, director of the college’s Workforce Development Center who was instrumental in writing the grant proposal, said, “The college’s relationship with the local WIN Job Centers will also link participating students into career exploration, job searches, on the job training or internships, and job placement services. Students needing support services will also have access to case managers and navigators to provide assistance.”

As part of the project, the college will work with existing Adult Education and Career & Technical Education pathways to encourage and motivate students to complete coursework which would lead to middle skills careers.

For more information, contact Williams at 601-635-6432 or email lwilliams@eccc.edu.

EMCC FOOTBALL A GRIDIRON LEGACY FOR COGGINS FAMILY

Event Dates and Times

10/26/2017 - 11/4/2017
East Miss. Community College
EMCC FOOTBALL A GRIDIRON LEGACY FOR COGGINS FAMILY

SCOOBA — When Charles “Bulldog” Coggins suited up in 1964 as a member of the East Mississippi Junior College Lions football team, little did he know that would be the start of a family tradition that would span more than five decades and three generations.
Coggins’ son, Keith Coggins (Class of 1993) also played for the Lions, as does his grandson, Stuart Coggins, who is a member of the team’s current squad.
“It’s neat the way it all intertwines,” Keith Coggins said. “Dad started this for all of us. If it had not of been for him, none of us would have been here.”
A high school football standout, Bulldog Coggins was recruited by former Lions’ Coach Bob “Bull” Sullivan.
“Coach Sullivan was kind of a special guy,” Bulldog Coggins said. “For me, he was my messiah. My dad had been dead and gone and I needed somebody who would provide me with structure.”
Bulldog was brought in as a tight end to play on Sullivan’s pass-centered offense, long before the term West Coast offense was dubbed and the playing style was adopted by pro football teams. Bulldog, an All-American, also long-snapped and even briefly lined up behind the center after quarterback Bill Buckner, another All-American, suffered a broken jaw.
“We would have played for the national championship had Bill not have gotten hurt,” Bulldog Coggins said.
After graduating, Bulldog played tight end for Delta State University. He was later moved to center, where he snapped to Buckner, who was also playing for DSU.
After finishing school, he served as a high school football coach for seven years before beginning a career in the insurance industry.
“In 2001, the Lord pulled me off into his business,” Bulldog Coggins said. “I am a Methodist preacher now.”
Keith Coggins was a football fan from a young age and fondly recalls attending practices at Columbia Academy when his dad was the head coach there. He played the game from an early age, first for the YMCA, then Oak Hill Academy and later West Point.
Keith Coggins was a center and long-snapper throughout his football career.
“At West Point, we won three state championships in a row, two in 4A and one at 5A,” Keith Coggins said. “Back then, 5A was the biggest classification they had in the state.”
After a disappointing season his freshmen year at EMCC, Keith Coggins considered transferring to another college but changed his mind when former pro football player Tom Goode was hired as EMCC’s head coach and athletic director.
“Coach Goode said to me, ‘I need you to stay here and help me,’” Keith Coggins said. “So, I stayed and we went 6-4. That was the best thing I ever did in my life.”
He later played for Mississippi State University, making the traveling squad as a redshirt junior and playing in the Peach Bowl. After school, Keith worked for Kerr-McGee and later for Monroe Gas Storage in Amory, where he is still employed.
Like his father and grandfather before him, Stuart Coggins plays center for EMCC. In high school, he played left guard and right tackle.
“I played everywhere,” Stuart Coggins said. “I didn’t play center until the last two games of my senior year.”
A dual-sport threat, Stuart Coggins was also a high-school standout in baseball, earning second best in the state with 58 RBIs this past season. He plans to try out for EMCC’s baseball team and wants to major in athletic training at a four-year university once he graduates.
So which sport does he prefer?
“I think I can maybe go further in baseball than football but I think I enjoy football a little better,” Stuart Coggins said.

NOV. 13–20: Community Donates 24,200 Shoebox Gifts for Children in Need

MERIDIAN, Mississippi, Oct. 25, 2017—This month, several locations in the multi-county East Central MS Area Team will serve as drop-off sites for the Samaritan's Purse project, Operation Christmas Child—joining nearly 5,000 U.S. locations collecting gift-filled shoeboxes for children in need around the world.
During the project's National Collection Week, Nov. 13 – 20, Meridian residents will transform empty shoeboxes into gifts of hope filled with school supplies, hygiene items and fun toys. Operation Christmas Child will deliver these shoebox gifts to children affected by war, disease, disaster, poverty and famine.
This year, the East Central MS Area Team hopes to contribute more than 24,200 shoebox gifts toward the 2017 global goal of reaching 12 million children.
"We are honored to join the nationwide effort to collect gift-filled shoeboxes for children who may have never experienced the true meaning of Christmas," said Regional Director Shelli Wishard. "Through these simple gifts and a message of hope, children learn that God loves them and has not forgotten them.”
