WLOX Editorial: We applaud Southern Miss

The University of Southern Mississippi Gulf Park campus in Long Beach is expanding its programs. It will become one of only 13 schools nationwide with a Coast Guard Auxiliary University program.

Students will learn leadership and technical skills. Upon graduation, they will be ready to join the Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security or other emergency response government agencies.

This is certainly a very worthy and needed program. We applaud Southern Miss for this addition at the Gulf Park Campus and hope this campus will continue to expand its programs increasing opportunities for students on the coast.

That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
