Joey Mitchell earns Career and Technical Counselor’s licensure

Alcorn State University’s Joey Mitchell continues to make strides in his career.

Mitchell, who is the director of Career Services, earned the Career and Technical Counselor’s Vocational licensure through the Mississippi Department of Education. He earned the licensure by completing a series of training modules at the Mississippi State University Research and Curriculum Unit.

Mitchell believes that this new accomplishment will allow him to be more effective in his role in Alcorn Career Services.

“After the completion of the seminars, I believe that I am better prepared to assist our students in their transition from secondary education to college and career readiness,” said Mitchell. “I have an applied knowledge of the changes that have taken place with Mississippi Department of Education over the course of two years. These changes help me understand where we are headed in Higher Education in relationship to recruitment efforts, articulation agreements, and dual enrollment.”
