Hinds Community College’s Gateway to College program will graduate 31 high school students in the second year of the program.

The ceremony is at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 3, in the Lecture Hall of George Wynne Hall on the Hinds Community College Rankin Campus in Pearl.

Gateway to College, which began in fall 2012, is a Mississippi Works Partnership between Hinds Community College and Rankin County schools. The program enrolls high school students in danger of not graduating and allows them to finish high school at the college’s campus while also earning college credits.

Five students graduated in June 2013 at the first graduation ceremony.


The speaker for this year’s ceremony is Eleanor Long of Florence, who is chair of the social sciences department at Hinds’ Rankin Campus.
