Dear MDCC Supporters,

The naming of a building is an honor that contributes to the college’s sense of its heritage and is a significant event in the history of our institution. Named buildings serve as a consistent reminder of the contributions and legacies of some of the most notable individuals in the history of our college. As we now celebrate our 90th anniversary, we invite you to participate in the process of selecting names for some unnamed buildings on the Moorhead campus.

A. A proposed honoree shall have achieved distinction in one or more of the following ways:
1)While serving the college in an important employee capacity, the individual has rendered distinguished service that warrants recognition of the individual’s exceptional contributions to the welfare of the college and/or service district.
2)The individual has contributed in truly exceptional ways to the welfare of the institution or achieved such unique distinction to warrant recognition.
B.When an individual has achieved distinction as recognized above, a proposal may be made for naming in honor of the individual on the earlier of the following:
1)Following the retirement or other separation from the college or from elected or appointed office; or,
2)Following the person’s death, if the person has not yet retired or otherwise separated from the college or District.

MDCC responds to Netflix documentary

  • Monday, 01 August 2016 21:36

In light of the recently released Netflix documentary series, “Last Chance U,” Mississippi Delta Community College takes issue with the portrayal of the in-game altercation that occurred during the Oct. 22, 2015 East Mississippi Community College football game.

Mississippi Delta has openly cooperated with the Mississippi Association of Community and Junior Colleges (MACJC) and National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA). MDCC accepts responsibility for its actions in the altercation and is abiding by the punishment assigned. Our administration, the MACJC and the NJCAA investigated and took corrective measures in this matter last fall.

The NJCAA issued a two-game suspension for players and coaches of both teams. Mississippi Delta is enforcing its punishment during its first two 2016 season games. In addition, MDCC held its players accountable for their actions.

At no time did our coaching staff encourage our student-athletes to initiate an altercation of any type.

While the game of football is an important part of the spirit of MDCC, no athletic program or event supersedes the mission of the college, which is to provide a “quality education through academic, career, technical, health sciences and workforce training programs.”

Providing a safe and diverse learning atmosphere is and will continue to be the college’s main priority.

Our coaches and administration regret the situation, and have worked hard to ensure unfortunate events such as this do not happen again. We hope others in the league will do the same.

Obituary: Dr. Carroll “Dennis” Elmore

Carroll “Dennis” Elmore died in an auto accident ‪Wednesday afternoon, July 27, 2016. Dennis was born April 3, 1940 in clay county Mississippi to Clarence and Nadine (Berry) Elmore.  Dennis is survived by his two brothers and one sister-in-law Glen(Ellen) of Naples, Florida and Robert Elmore of Maben, Mississippi; three daughters, Elizabeth of Leland, MS, Anne of Atlanta, GA, and Harriet of Atlanta, GA; one grandson, Peyton(Anne) and one nephew, Christopher (Glen and Ellen) of St. Louis, MO.  Dennis was preceded in death by his wife, Anne Noble Elmore (2014).

Dennis grew up in East Mississippi and graduated in 1958 from Cumberland High School in Webster County Mississippi.  He continued his education at Mississippi State University earning his bachelors degree in 1962.  After graduation, he served for the United States Army as a Lieutenant at Fort Polk, LA.  After his discharge from the Army, Dennis continued his education completing a Masters’ Degree from the University of Arizona in 1966 and a PhD from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign in 1970.

After completing his PhD, Dennis moved to Leland, Mississippi where he began a 32 year career as a research scientist at Jamie Whitten Delta States Research Center(USDA-ARS).  Dr. Elmore’s primary research centered around plant physiology, genetics, and weed and herbicide applications. His research culminated in several published books and field study guides on morning glories and weeds.  Dennis was the editor of the Southern Weed Science Society’s Weed Identification Guide. His work culminated in him receiving a lifetime achievement award from the Society.  Dennis retired from the USDA in 2003, and after his retirement was able to continue his love of learning and teaching by serving as an adjunct faculty at Mississippi Delta Community College at Moorhead and their satellite campus in Greenville. Dennis taught botany and biology at Mississippi Delta from 2005 until his death.  

Along with teaching, Dennis’s passions were centered around his family, friends, and his church. He was a longtime member of Leland Presbyterian Church where he held many leadership and volunteer positions during his over 40 year membership, including leading his Sunday school class, the Good News.

Besides tirelessly following his 3 children everywhere and supporting all of their pursuits plus his devotion to the Church, Dennis enjoyed researching his family genealogy , sharing his love of plants and especially flowers, and also spending time and effort helping his community.  Dennis for the past several years has dedicated his time to volunteering at St. Vincent DePaul’s and Mission Mississippi, where he also has served on the board.  

Visitation and funeral will be held for Dennis Elmore at Leland Presbyterian Church, visitation ‪at 1:30 funeral services to follow ‪at 3:00.  Grave side internment to follow at Stoneville Cemetery. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to his favorite charities, Leland Presbyterian, St. Vincent DePaul’s, or Mission Mississippi.

He’ll be severely missed and we wish him the best in his retirement,” says Jim Southward, director of athletics activities for the Mississippi Community College Board.

Before joining the Trojan family, Bellipanni served as athletic trainer, assistant football and track coach, athletic purchasing agent and equipment manager at Indianola Academy from 1980-1986. He was also the assistant football coach, golf coach, athletic trainer and instructor at Washington School for two years starting in 1978.
