Annual Hollingsworth gospel concert to benefit scholarship fund

The tenth annual Hollingsworth Gospel Concert, which benefits the Robert Wallace Hollingsworth Family Law Enforcement Scholarship at Hinds Community College, will be held at 6 p.m. on Saturday, July 19 in Hogg Auditorium of Cain-Cochran Hall on the Raymond Campus.

The benefit concert was first started in 2004 to help raise funds for the Mike Hollingsworth, a Warren County Deputy Sherriff who was injured in the line of duty. The family saw such great success with the event that they decided to make it a tradition. Currently, all proceeds from the benefit go to the Hollingsworth Family Law Enforcement Scholarship, which ultimately helps a deserving Hinds student attend college.

The family’s scholarship is dedicated to five Hollingsworth men, all serving in some capacity in the field of law enforcement. The student receiving the scholarship must be majoring in criminal justice.

This year’s concert line-up includes the Born Again Quartet from Byram, Jack Hollingsworth from Utica, Gloryland Quartet from Brookhaven, Potter’s Clay Quartet from Houston and Carl Hollingsworth from Byram.

The concert is open to the public and the cost is donation only.

Hinds CC Rankin Campus high school programs tap new directors

Valerie Barton

Rebecca Tullos

Current Hinds Community College employees Valerie Barton and Rebecca Tullos have changed positions at the Rankin Campus.

Barton, formerly the director of the Gateway to College program, is replacing Eric Smith as the director of the Pearl/Rankin Career and Technical Center on the Rankin Campus, the vocational center for high school students. Tullos, who was the resource specialist in the Gateway program, is replacing Barton as director.

Gateway to College, which began at Hinds in fall 2012, is a Mississippi Works Partnership between Hinds Community College and Rankin County and Pearl schools. The program enrolls high school students in danger of not graduating and allows them to finish high school at the college’s Rankin Campus while also earning college credits. At the Pearl/Rankin Career and Technical Center, high school students can take a variety of vocational courses and get a head start on preparing for a career or more post-secondary training.

“Valerie Barton brings much to the table as the new director for our secondary Career and Technical programs,” said Dr. Sue Powell, vice president for the Rankin Campus.

“Her background and education have prepared her well for the position. She demonstrated strong abilities for stimulating student success as the first Gateway to College director. I think she will continue ‘putting students first,’ which has been a tradition of the Pearl-Rankin Career Technical Center since its beginning in 1983.”

Barton was the founding director of the Gateway program in 2012. She has a Bachelor of Science in management and marketing from Union University, a master of education degree in guidance and counseling from Mississippi and is licensed as a K-12 administrator.

“I am thrilled to continue working with students from the Rankin County and Pearl school districts,” Barton said. “Hinds Community College offers opportunities for high school students to enroll in programs that, upon completion, allow students to easily transition into Career and Technical Education programs of study at the postsecondary level. It’s exciting to help prepare students to become productive citizens for tomorrow’s workforce.”

Tullos has an associate of arts degree from Hinds and a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from Belhaven University.

“We are very fortunate that Rebecca Tullos has been working with the Gateway to College program for the past two years,” Powell said. “She knows the Gateway program and the characteristics of the students well. She also knows how to marshal the necessary resources and services the students need to help them successfully graduate with a high school diploma and college credit.”

Tullos has been with the Gateway program since 2012.

During the 20 years she taught middle school, “I developed a passion for helping students overcome external and academic challenges that were hindering their success,” she said.  “The nurturing, family-like support system that Gateway to College provides fosters a positive self-concept and attitude toward school. … .   I am looking forward to sharing much more success with my staff and students through this incredible partnership Hinds Community College has with the Rankin County and Pearl school districts.”

Alum leaves Hinds CC Foundation with largest single bequest of $2m

 

Elizabeth Lloyd Schales

Elizabeth Lloyd Schales

Hinds Community College alumna Elizabeth Lloyd Schales (1943) wasn’t well known when she was a student in 1942 and 1943, nor is she known to current students.

But the name of this highly intelligent and somewhat eccentric Rankin County native will likely be well known to many Hinds students in the future because of what she did for them.  Schales made a bequest of about $2 million to Hinds Community College — the largest single gift to the Hinds Community College Foundation since its inception in 1978.

The gift will be used to directly help students, mostly for student scholarships, said Betty Carraway, coordinator for Special Projects/Donor Relations.

When Schales died in November 2012 at the age of 89, she left the college an estate of about $2 million, which will create the Elizabeth Lloyd Schales Endowment for Excellence aimed at higher achieving students.

“She really wanted to reward students who demonstrate academic achievement and promise,” Carraway recalled.

Elizabeth Lloyd was a Hinds Junior College student in 1942 and 1943, finishing her degree at Millsaps College.

She met her husband, Dr. Otto Schales while working as a chemist in New Orleans.

In 1944, he was hired as director of the first research laboratory at the Oschner Clinic. He also worked with the Department of Biochemistry at Tulane University School of Medicine in New Orleans and was a founding member of the Journal of Clinical Chemistry.

The Schales family then moved to Ohio, where he was responsible for the chemistry lab at Elyria Memorial Hospital.  After he retired, they moved to Columbus, Ohio, where he died in October 1988. Otto and Elizabeth Schales had no children but did a lot of traveling.

Elizabeth Schales renewed her relationship with Hinds in 1996 with a $10 gift to the Hinds Community College Foundation.

After Hinds’ landmark Cain Hall burned in 1998, the Foundation mounted a capital campaign to rebuild. No one at Hinds really knew Elizabeth Schales but because of the $10 donation her name and address were in the database.

One day Schales called the phone number on the Hinds capital campaign materials she had received, getting Carraway on the line.

“We just began to talk, and she started to cry, talking about Hinds. It was those memories and good friends she had had here,” Carraway said. “We talked about Cain Hall, and apparently it was such a strong memory she sent $1,000, then $10,000, then another $10,000.”

Over a three-year period, Schales gave $31,000 to the campaign to build Cain-Cochran Hall, which was officially dedicated in November 2002.

Carraway and Schales maintained a relationship over the years. Carraway visited her twice in Ohio during travel for other reasons and spent the night at her house. She was well read, keeping up with world events and the news. Carraway said.

Then in 2000 Schales sent a copy of her will to the college, showing that she intended to leave her estate to Hinds. “We didn’t know if she had a lot of money or not,” Carraway said.

Schales established her scholarship in 2001 with a $15,000 endowment for Hinds students who demonstrate academic achievement and promise with a preference for those interested in science.

In 2003, she moved back to the Jackson area where she had a sister. “We continued to visit more frequently,” Carraway said. “She was very sweet. She was extremely intelligent.”

After Schales death in 2012, the college learned just how much she planned to give the college — about $2 million. “A significant number of scholarships will be awarded in the coming year from this fund,” Carraway said.
