GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - At a time when community college enrollment across the nation is trending down, Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College is getting creative in its efforts at attracting students and teaching them.

Mary Graham, MGCCC president, tells The Sun Herald (https://bit.ly/1jKveC6 ) on the Jefferson Davis campus in Gulfport that means teaching something that’s never been taught before — the gambling industry.

The classes will begin in the fall, and the gambling element will be added to six existing programs.

Beginning as early as this summer, Graham says MGCCC will start a new aerospace and aircraft training package aimed at preparing students for jobs at such employers as Airbus in Mobile.
