As part of a statewide initiative, Accelerate Mississippi, Kosciusko High School has two career coaches, Teresa and Tommy Trusell. The Career Coaches begin working with students in the 10th grade, guiding them in making a career decision based on their aptitude and interest. Each spring KHS host decision day, where students choose a career path they would like to further explore. As a part of decision day, a select group of students are invited to join the Career Pathways Externship. These students work in business and industries they are interested in. 12 KHS Juniors are a part of the extern program this fall.
