Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.) recently met with three students from Mississippi State University’s ACCESS program. The students were Charles “Garrett” Lofton of Brookhaven, Tanner Laird of Roxie, and Cedric Gainwell Jr. of Yazoo.
MSU ACCESS is a four-year, residential post-secondary college program for students with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Students learn independent living skills, develop career and employment skills through a variety of internship experiences, audit university courses, and further their academic and social skills. Upon completion of the program, students will graduate with an MSU Certification of Completion. In place since 2010, the program currently has 26 students.
