Student Becomes the Instructor
Jeffery Mayfield entered the Veterans Upward Bound program in January 2018 with a plan to complete a technical education program in Heating, Ventilation, & A/C (HVAC) and later start his own business.
Focused and determined, Mayfield enrolled in the HVAC program at Louisiana Delta Community College in August of 2018. During his enrollment in the HVAC program, the instructors were so impressed with his knowledge and skill level that they asked him to assist during class instruction. Committed to his goal, Mayfield earned a spot on the Chancellor’s List for three semesters maintaining a 4.0-grade point average each semester.
After four semesters, Mayfield accomplished his goal and received a Technical Diploma in May of 2020 with honors from Louisiana Delta Community College.
This alone makes for a great story, but it does not end there. In September of 2020, another window of opportunity opened for Mayfield. His dedication and commitment to excellence in the classroom paid off in a much unexpected way. Mayfield was offered a teaching position in the HVAC department at Louisiana Delta Community College!
He is an exemplary example for every student he will ever teach.
Congratulations, Mr. Jeffery A. Mayfield! LDCC is so proud of you!
