When C Spire holds its C3 Coding Challenge for Mississippi high school students this spring, expect Marcheta Walker to be there mentoring student teams. It’s a project she passionately supports.
“There’s a huge need in Mississippi to introduce kids to computer science and show them where the tech industry is going. I like sharing my love of coding with the students,” she said. “Plus, the C3 winners get college scholarship money, and that’s important.”
The Senior Manager of Billing Applications and Operations joined C Spire in 2007. She oversees three teams: The billing applications team that manage the billing platform and ensure new wireless customers are configured properly on the network so their phones will work; the billing operations team that makes sure customers are being charged properly; and the bill rendering team that is responsible for ensuring the printing and mailing of invoices and letters are completed within a timely manner.
“C Spire is a family, and we all are here for a common vision: to be and be known as the best in our industry. In order to do that, we must put the customer at the center of everything we do. Being a part of the IT department, I am fortunate to be able to apply new technology and frameworks to keep up with the industry and invest in our future – and our customers’.”
