WLBT Talks to Herman Cotten about COMCAST Veterans Code Program

Herman Cotten - WLBT - Veteran Coders

Mississippi Coding Academies is grateful to Roslyn Anderson and WLBT for the excellent coverage of graduate veteran Herman Cotten and our COMCAST Veterans Program.

Herman Cotten was one of the first Veterans to join the program in 2019 and has created two mobile apps. Kidzamm, a children’s app designed to teach the importance of reading and recycling and the Mississippi Heritage African American Influence app that explores the critical significance of African American influence in Mississippi.

We have been on a mission to improve the lives of Veterans here in Mississippi and are thrilled to have Cotten helping us campaign. We are also grateful to COMCAST for sponsoring this special program and to the well-deserved Veterans for their dedication and hard work in completing the program. The next free 11-month class will begin in July 2022. If you are a Veteran or know one who may be interested in a life change, please apply online.
