Holmes student Akumcha Mobit selected for Mississippi INBRE Service Scholars Program

Holmes Community College student Akumcha Mobit was selected for the Mississippi INBRE Service Scholars Program and will serve as an intern with the program this summer in Jackson. The program integrates public health education and intervention training with community-based programs and health clinics. Through Mississippi INBRE’s partnership with My Brother’s Keeper, Inc., this internship trains students to serve the Mississippi community as public health educators and service providers.

Mobit is a freshman psychology major on the Goodman Campus.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed having Akumcha in my class this semester,” said biology instructor Jamie Sample. “He always comes by to tell me good morning and is a bright spot in my day. He has impeccable manners, and such a love for learning. I can always depend on Akumcha to provide answers to the questions that I ask the class. Due to the tornado, he was zooming for a while, and then he came back to face-to-face class. He told me that he came back because he knew that I needed him there, as no one was answering my questions.”

The son of Dr. Paul and Edith Mobit, he is originally from Cameroon, Africa, but moved with his family to Madison several years ago. Upon graduation from Holmes, Mobit plans to transfer to a four-year university to continue his studies in psychology.

“I would like to thank Mrs. Jamie Sample for bringing this internship opportunity to my attention and encouraging me to apply,” Mobit said. “I’d also like to thank the rest of the Holmes faculty for everything they’ve taught me and my parents for their support and laying a good foundation for me.”
