Student: 'My computer science class is preparing me for the future I want'

C Spire is committed to advancing technology throughout the state of Mississippi. That's why we've launched a statewide campaign working with state legislators to pass a bill that requires computer science education in our public schools. Learn more here.

We’re also offering initiatives that introduce students to the incredible things they can accomplish through computer science education. One of those initiatives is C Spire Software Development Pathway, a program that helps students gain quick access to careers in technology.

In this video, high school student Jarrod Tefford of Oxford, Miss., talks about what he's learned in the program:

Mississippi's Future Can't Wait

Senate Bill 2284 and House Bill 1165 are the next steps in getting computer science education in classrooms, and they rest in the hands of the House and Senate education committees.

Contact your legislator in support of computer science for every school. Text FUTURE to 50457 or visit for more info.
