Hinds CC honors Mullins, Alumnus of the Year

Hinds Community College will honor Bob Mullins, the 2014 Alumnus of the Year, at the Alumni Dinner, held at 5 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 23 in Mayo Gymnasium on the Raymond Campus. Also being honored at the Alumni Dinner is Ray Neilsen, the 2014 Alumni Service Award winner, and the 2014 Hinds Community College Sports Hall of Fame inductees.

As vice president for Economic Development at Hinds, Mullins spent a large portion of his time developing relationships, marketing the college and doing public relations.

“When I worked at Hinds, it wasn’t a job – it was a position. It was a position that I loved,” he says. Hinds President Dr. Clyde Muse “wasn’t just my boss, he was my friend. I traveled with him to the state and nation’s capitals to promote the good things we were doing at the college. We worked together on making strong relationships within the community.”

Muse says Mullins had a large impact on the college and the community.

“Bob was one of the most talented and gifted vice presidents I have worked with,” Muse says. “He is creative and has tremendous energy as well as a unique ability to work with business and industry to help them develop a skilled workforce.”

Mullins first started at Hinds in 1967 as a student, then received a bachelor’s degree at the University of Southern Mississippi. Mullins was hired to teach by Walter Gibbes and was called to active duty training for the National Guard shortly after. When he returned from service, he finished his master’s degree at USM and picked up right where he left off, teaching at Hinds.

After two years of teaching architectural drawing, surveying, math and industrial psychology, Mullins began overseeing night school programs at the Jackson Campus-Academic/Technical Center.

He eventually moved back to the Raymond Campus as assistant dean of Vocational and Career-Technical programs, and then started taking care of industry training courses for the entire college district.

“We were able to do a lot of training and also make a profit,” he says. “We paid all our expenses plus contributed to the college. That’s when we began discussing a conference and training center.”

After several years of budgeting and finding the right funding, Eagle Ridge Conference Center was born.

Mullins also spearheaded a partnership with Bridgwater College in the United Kingdom, growing the roots of what has become one of the college’s most popular international study abroad options for students and faculty.

“Someone from the U.K. was visiting the states and saw the Hinds CC sign. They came to meet Dr. Muse, he referred them to me and the next thing you know, I’m getting a call from someone with a British accent asking when they can send their students to visit our college,” Mullins says. Jackie Granberry, vice president for Advancement and Student Success, remembers going on the first Bridgwater trip overseas with Mullins.

“I am overjoyed to see how the program has grown over the years, and I know it wouldn’t have happened without him,” she says. “He’s always been very visionary and a step ahead of his time.”

After 28 years as a college employee, Mullins accepted a position at Nissan North America, where he began as section manager for training and communications. He was the first employee the company hired at its Canton plant. By the time he retired in 2013, he had advanced to senior manager for training and was responsible for technical training for the entire North American district.

Although Mullins is technically retired, he owns and operates his own consulting business and provides services nationally and internationally. He also has a unique hobby of making stained glass, and has pieces in two Raymond churches and more than 60 churches across the state.

Mullins is married to Deborah Mullins. He has a daughter, a son-in-law and two grandchildren, all of Pelahatchie. The family enjoys spending their time at their Eagle Lake retreat.

“Although I don’t get to spend as much time with the college as I used to, Hinds is a special place to me still, because it helped create a lot of things that led to success in my life,” he says. “The things I learned there — the value of getting things done, making contacts and being fair and honest with people — that’s invaluable.”

Hinds CC landscape chair honored by national magazine

Martha Hill_web

Hinds Community College Landscape Management Technology chair Martha Hill of Clinton was recently chosen as a member of the Class of 2014 Lawn and Landscape Leadership Awards in the Lawn & Landscape Magazine. She is featured in the October issue of the magazine for the annual recognition of contractors and others allied to the profession who have gone above and beyond and stand out for their dedication to the industry.

The following is an article by Brian Horn, Lawn & Landscape Magazine:

Martha Hill isn’t angry, just a little annoyed. She recently had two students ready to enter her Landscape Management program at Hinds Community College, but then they changed their minds. She can handle kids having a change of heart, but these particular students were talked out of enrolling in the program by their parents.

“I knew that was out there, but that has hit me in the face twice in one week and I am frustrated,” she says of the anti-landscaping sentiment.

The change of heart is something Hill, and the green industry as a whole, has to deal with. Mom and Dad don’t see landscaping as a career, but as a part-time job you do while you prepare for your “real job.” But after almost 30 years in education, Hill isn’t going to let a few misguided parents kill the passion she has for the industry. If she had the chance to speak with the parents, she’d lay out valid reasons why their son or daughter should consider a career in the industry.

Endowed scholarship honors retired Hinds CC instructors, sisters

 

The Hinds Community College Foundation recognized its 2014-2015 scholarship recipients, donors and honorees at a scholarship reception Oct. 4. Among those recognized was recipient Bracken Carroll of Terry, center, who received the Jerry Agent and Mary Etta Naftel Scholarship. With her is Jerry Agent of Raymond, left, and Mary Etta Naftel of Raymond, right.

The Hinds Community College Foundation recognized its 2014-2015 scholarship recipients, donors and honorees at a scholarship reception Oct. 4. Among those recognized was recipient Bracken Carroll of Terry, center, who received the Jerry Agent and Mary Etta Naftel Scholarship. With her are Jerry Agent of Raymond, left, and Mary Etta Naftel of Raymond, right.

The Jerry Agent and Mary Etta Naftel Academic Endowed Scholarship for Hinds Community College students was established recently by the two sisters who grew up in Raymond and graduated from Hinds.

A bequest from Mrs. Charles C. (Helen H.) Jones of Raymond was used to fund the scholarship in the names of Agent and Naftel, who are her nieces.

Charles and Helen Jones had also established the Charles C. Jones Technical Scholarship. Jones worked at Hinds as a Distributing and Marketing Technology instructor from 1969 until he retired in 1990.

“My uncle Charles Jones and I both taught in the technical division and my sister Jerry Agent taught in the academic division of Hinds, all three of us on the Raymond

Campus,” said Naftel, who was chair of the Business Technology Department at Hinds.

“With these two family scholarships, we are pleased to have the opportunity to support both technical and academic students.”

“Obviously, Hinds has always been very important to our family. In addition to our teaching here, our mother also worked in the business office. Prior to that, our whole family went to school here,” Agent said.

Agent and Naftel said they hope the recipients of this scholarship will be successful in achieving their educational goals.

“We like to think that this scholarship will help other students find what we found at Hinds as students: helpful, knowledgeable, supportive faculty and staff who encouraged us to learn both in and out of the classroom,” Agent said.

Both sisters enjoyed serving Hinds as teachers and department chairpersons for more than 30 years, retiring in 2005. Both of them received recognition as Outstanding Instructor, Distinguished Instructor and Life Star recipient, 3E Award (Emphasis on Excellence and Enrichment) and Professor Emeritus. They were also honored in the state Legislature’s HEADWAE (Higher Education Appreciation Day, Working for Academic Excellence) instructor recognition program.

Jerry Peyton Agent graduated from the University of Southern Mississippi, earned a master’s degree at Mississippi College and took additional coursework in education at the University of Mississippi. She served as chair of the Speech and Theatre Department at Hinds.

She was named to Who’s Who Among America’s Teachers, was the Phi Theta Kappa Faculty Award recipient and was the dedicatee for the Mississippi and the Arts Week.

She was a member of the Mississippi Communication Association for 33 years serving as president and executive secretary.

Dr. Mary Etta Peyton Naftel graduated from the University of Southern Mississippi, earned a master’s at Mississippi College and earned a doctorate at the University of Mississippi.

Naftel was named the Mississippi Business Education Association (MBEA) Outstanding Business Educator, the Southern Business Education Association (SBEA) Postsecondary Teacher of the Year and the National Business Education Association (NBEA) Postsecondary Teacher of the Year.

She also received the SBEA Outstanding Leadership Award. She was a member of MBEA, SBEA and NBEA for 34 years serving as president of the state and regional associations and serving on the national executive board.

 •

The Jerry Agent and Mary Etta Naftel Academic Endowed Scholarship will be awarded to students who are full-time Hinds Community College students. To be considered, students must apply by March 1 to the Hinds Community College Foundation.

Hinds Community College Foundation Scholarships are awarded on the basis of a student’s desire for achievement, involvement in extracurricular activities, financial need, grades and letters of recommendation.

Endowed scholarships may be established with a minimum gift of $15,000 donated to the Hinds Community College Foundation. The gift will constitute the initial principal for the endowment. The principal will be maintained and only the income earned will be awarded in the form of scholarships.

Non-endowed scholarships may be established with a minimum gift of $500. All gifts of cash and/or stocks are fully tax deductible.

For more information about establishing a scholarship at Hinds Community College, contact Betty Carraway, 601.857.3800, ecarraway@hindscc.edu.

As Mississippi’s largest community college, Hinds Community College is a comprehensive institution offering quality, affordable educational opportunities with more than 170 academic, career and technical programs. With six locations in central Mississippi, Hinds enrolled nearly 12,000 credit students in fall 2014. To learn more, visit www.hindscc.edu or call 1.800.HindsCC.

Collins, Adjutant General of Mississippi, Hinds President Dr. Clyde Muse, Jack Wallace, chair of the Mississippi Committee for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve; Maj. Gen. William C. Crisler Jr., assistant adjutant general for the Air National Guard and Colonel Harold Mashburn, 172d Airlift Wing Mission Support Group commander.

From left are Major General Augustus L. Collins, Adjutant General of Mississippi, Hinds President Dr. Clyde Muse, Jack Wallace, chair of the Mississippi Committee for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve; Maj. Gen. William C. Crisler Jr., assistant adjutant general for the Air National Guard and Colonel Harold Mashburn, 172d Airlift Wing Mission Support Group commander.

The Mississippi Committee for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), a Department of Defense (DoD) office, awarded Hinds Community College President Dr. Clyde Muse with a Seven Seals Award in recognition of his support of the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve mission.

“The Seven Seals Award is the only Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve award that bridges both the employer and ESGR volunteer recognition awards program,” said Jack Wallace, ESGR MS state chair. “It was created by ESGR to publicly recognize individuals who provide significant achievement, initiative or support that promotes and supports the ESGR mission.” 

Muse was nominated by Colonel Jonathan T. Wall, a member of the 172d Airlift Wing.  The award was given Oct. 9 for his support during the 172d Wingman training events for the past two years.  

“We couldn’t do in the National Guard and all of our reserve components what we do to protect in this nation if it weren’t for good employers who understand that we have a mission to do and we have a job to do,” said Major General Augustus L. Collins, Adjutant General of Mississippi.

Collins, a graduate of Northeast Community College, said it was a particular pleasure to see the award presented to a community college president. “It does my heart good to see someone from that system being recognized for their service and their support to our military operations,” he said.

Muse said that out of his family of six boys, all but one served in the military, the National Guard or Reserves. Muse was a member of the National Guard when he was a student at East Central Community College.

“I’ve seen what it can do for men and women,” he said. “I’m always happy to help in any way that I can with our service men and women because I have a strong feeling, and I am a patriotic person.”

Also on hand for the presentation was Maj. Gen. William C. Crisler Jr., assistant adjutant general for the Air National Guard. Crisler said the Guard has used meeting space at the Clyde Muse Center on the Rankin Campus in Pearl. “I want to thank you personally for supporting the wing,” he said. “That facility is absolutely perfect. Our partnership with you has just been outstanding.”

Colonel Harold Mashburn, who played football for Hinds in the late 1970s, also presented Muse with a plaque. “This is just a token of our appreciation for everything that you’ve done for us,” said Mashburn, 172d Airlift Wing Mission Support Group commander.

ESGR, a DoD office, seeks to foster a culture in which all employers support and value the employment and military service of members of the National Guard and Reserve in the United States. ESGR facilitates and promotes a cooperative culture of employer support for National Guard and Reserve service by developing and advocating mutually beneficial initiatives, recognizing outstanding employer support, increasing awareness of applicable laws and policies, resolving potential conflicts between employers and their service members, and acting as the employers’ principal advocate within DoD.

Paramount to ESGR’s mission is encouraging employment of Guardsmen and Reservists who bring integrity, global perspective and proven leadership to the civilian workforce. 

For more information about ESGR outreach programs or volunteer opportunities, call 1.800.336.4590 or visit www.ESGR.mil.

As Mississippi’s largest community college, Hinds Community College is a comprehensive institution offering quality, affordable educational opportunities with more than 170 academic, career and technical programs.

The Student Learning Assistant Program sponsored its 21st Annual Student Leadership Forum, Friday, Oct. 10 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Hinds Community College’s Utica Campus.

The one-day leadership conference was geared toward high school and community college student leaders who are members of clubs and organizations on their campuses and in their communities. Breakout sessions included: building effective teams, career goals, civic engagement, leadership styles and other character building topics.

“Being a great leader takes hard work and dedication, but most of the necessary skills can be learned if you’re willing to put in the time and effort. If you want a seat at the big table or you have aspirations of greatness, then certain leadership skills are necessary to take you to the next level and that is what this conference is designed to do,” said Dr. Priscilla Robinson, director of student learning assistance program, who is in charge of the conference.

“We want all students who want to become better leaders to attend the conference,” she said. “We want to help students enhance their leadership skills.”

The keynote speaker was Jackson Mayor Tony Yarber. His message to the audience of more than 300 high school and college students was that leadership is selfless and when you lead, you lead not for yourself but for everyone else.

“Leadership is about more than you, it is about the people that may never meet you but may be impacted by what you do,” Yarber told the audience.

Hinds CC Vicksburg-Warren Campus renames building for long-time dean

The multipurpose building at Hinds Community College’s Vicksburg-Warren Campus was named for the administrator who helped the campus become what it is today, beginning 40 years ago in 1974.

The Joseph L. Loviza Multipurpose Building was named on Sept. 30 after the former Vicksburg Campus dean and former mayor of Vicksburg.

“When the Hinds Community College Board of Trustees and the college decide to make a decision to name a building in honor of or memory of an individual, it is a decision made with deliberate thought,” said Robert Pickett of Vicksburg, president of the Hinds Community College Board of Trustees. “The leadership provided by Joe Loviza in creating a college branch, and later a comprehensive college campus here to serve the people of Vicksburg and Warren County, certainly fits the expectations of our board when honoring outstanding contributions.”

Hinds President Dr. Clyde Muse said the campus started out as a high school career and technical education program, which called for a change in state law to be allowed at a community college.

“It set the example for the future,” Muse said. “This campus continues to be one of the largest career-technical programs for high school students in the state. That kind of effort just doesn’t go and happen. It takes a lot of hard work on the part of this community as well as others. We have had, over the years, the kind of leadership that it takes to make a full comprehensive community college campus in Vicksburg.”

Loviza said the campus “is the best investment you’ll ever make because you’ll have an immediate return on your tax dollar,” he said. “It’s not just Joe Loviza. Although I’m glad for my name to be up there, I had a lot of help getting here.”

Loviza is a 1960 graduate of Hinds Community College and was the first employee of the Vicksburg-Warren Campus, serving for 20 years.

He began his career with the Vicksburg Warren School System as director of Vocational, Technical and Adult Education. When the college began providing secondary vo-tech training in 1973, Loviza was employed to serve as the director, and later, dean, of the center. The center expanded to offer post-secondary classes and in 2002 was officially named the Vicksburg-Warren Campus. 

Chad Shealy, superintendent of the Vicksburg Warren school district, said Loviza remains a staunch supporter of education. “He loves vocational training. He loves technical training. He believes in career technology. He believes in providing a workforce for this community,” he said.

Loviza served as mayor of the city of Vicksburg from 1993 to 1997. After his retirement, he continued to support the city by serving on numerous boards and committees, including the Vicksburg Warren School Board.
