Mother-son graduates among Hinds CC spring graduation

Melissa Mason, left, and Corey Hulett, share a laugh in between classes at Hinds Community College earlier this month. Mason, who returned to school after two decades, and son, Corey, are graduating May 15.

RAYMOND – Life got in the way of Melissa Mason’s plans more than 22 years ago to start her education at Hinds Community College.

“I started Hinds and really wasn’t sure what I wanted to do,” Mason said, remembering a sudden move from her home state to New Jersey with the twin challenges of marriage and a new baby. “I found out I was pregnant, then had to move up there with my husband’s job.”

Mason, who now lives in Clinton, had planned to finish her schooling there, but plans collapsed and, within two years, she was back in Mississippi. The next 15 or so years brought a mix of joy and disappointment – a second son, Nathan, was born, while a second marriage ended. In between, Mason juggled jobs in everything from home detailing to law enforcement. The situation left son Corey Hulett, also of Clinton, as a sometime caretaker for his younger brother.

“I was working two jobs and having Corey take care of Nathan,” Mason said. “I wasn’t home but for three hours a day. I just decided it was time to go back to school and have just one job.”

On May 15, Mason, 47, and a now grown-up Corey, the baby boy she had when she first left Mississippi, will join other graduates as Hinds stages a record eight commencement ceremonies to wrap up the spring semester.

By the time Hulett was ready to chart his own course after high school, it took a key question from mom to convince him to do so cautiously.

“In high school, you have big dreams and don’t always see reality,” he said. “I love performing and love to sing, so I wanted to go to New York to be a dancer. I didn’t want to come to Hinds and didn’t care about anything else. My mother said, ‘Well, what happens if you don’t make it through the auditions? If you don’t make an audition, you don’t get paid.’ I’m thankful she talked me into it, because I’ve met some amazing people.”

Mason, a student at Jackson Campus-Academic/Technical Center, will receive an Associate of Applied Science degrees, with certificates in medical data technology. Hulett, a student at the Raymond Campus, is earning an Associate of Arts degree. They performed together on stage as members of the college’s Montage Theater of Dance, where Corey was the male lead at the multitalented dance troupe’s performance at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York City and at Fringe Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland.

They count Director of Dance Tiffany Jefferson among numerous kudos they have for Hinds faculty.

“Corey Hulett and Melissa Mason are what Southerners like to say ‘good people’,” Jefferson said, adding they just needed a place “for their true light to shine. That place for them was Hinds Community College.”

Paula Rodriguez, chair of the Speech Communication, Theater and Dance Department, said she will be sad to see them go “but I know that great things are waiting for them in the future. They have overcome some real obstacles in their lives to become dedicated students with impressive goals.”

Hinds turned out to the perfect place for Mason, particularly, as an older student, said Business Technology Department Chair Jackie Waite.

“Melissa is just one of many students who come to Hinds just because they are no longer in their late teens or early 20s and are scared and unsure if they are doing the right thing,” Waite said. “However, as an educator, I can attest that many times these students turn out to be the best ones in our classrooms.”

“She has overcome many obstacles in life, and she made the decision to complete her education in spite of the circumstances facing her upon her return to school,” said Dr. Marquise Loving, academic dean at the Jackson Campus-Academic/Technical Center.

Awards along the way are a source of pride for both mother and son. Mason has been a Presidential Scholar for three semesters, which means she had a 4.0, and also made the Dean’s List. Hulett received the Jeffrey Gibbs Memorial Scholarship for dance and a Beyond the Stage Award. Both mother and son are members of Phi Theta Kappa.

Both plan to attend Belhaven University, where Mason hopes a four-year degree will help her add physician’s assistant to her resume.’

“I don’t have to encourage my boys to go to college. They’ve seen what I had to do,” she said.

Hulett wants to back up any work in the arts with a solid foundation in business or physical therapy.

“I want to get an athletic trainer’s license to assist injured dancers,” he said.

Each credits Hinds with mending a pair of injured lives, making graduation day possible.

Hulett said Hinds has made him a better person because of the family-like atmosphere and the way he and his mom were treated. “I treat people differently, I’m more humble and sympathetic,” he said.

“All I’ve ever wanted to do is help people,” Mason said, adding her desire to do so has motivated her to instill self-reliance in her sons.

“If you really want to go back to school and get an education, then Hinds Community College will make that happen if you’re really serious,” Mason said.

Hinds CC high school student in Vicksburg headed to national Skills USA

Hinds CC high school student in Vicksburg headed to national Skills USA

web_Kody_Britt

A Hinds Community College student in a high school career-technical program in Vicksburg is getting ready for the big leagues, but he has some more work to do first.

That award won for him a trip to the national competition in Louisville, Ky., in June and a chance to win a full college scholarship.

Before he can pack for the national competition, however, he will graduate from high school and study for the national race.

“He has an online tutorial that tells him what skills he will have to use and what he will have to be able to do when he gets to Kentucky,” said Thomas Maples, Britt’s Hinds instructor for three years who will travel with him to the national competition. “Then he’ll have to practice and prepare. He won’t have but about a month.”

Britt and Maples explained that the time crunch will be nothing new for the student.

“Skills USA in January canceled the competition in ‘precision machining’ and said students would begin to compete in ‘Computerized Numerical Control Turning and CNC Milling,’ ” said Maples, who is retiring this year.

That presented a problem for the Hinds competitors – the Vicksburg-Warren Campus did not own the simulator used for the CNC training. Maples said he took his problem to his dean, Marvin Moak, who immediately secured the needed Haas CNC simulator. That left Britt under the gun to learn it quickly so he could compete in March in the state CNC Turning Competition.

Britt, a lifelong resident of Vicksburg, said he has had an interest in working with metal since beginning the high school program three years ago. He thinks the interest might come naturally because his father, who lives in Florida, maintains machines for the pharmaceutical company where he works.

After high school, he plans to enter the two-year machine shop program at Hinds Community College’s Raymond Campus and then be ready to secure a job in a machine shop. His dream job, he said, would be in aeronautics.

While at Hinds, Maples said, Britt has excelled in the machine shop program. In addition to taking his academic classes at Warren Central in the mornings and his career technical classes at Hinds in the afternoons, Britt also is a part-time deliveryman for Fastenal Tools, which has allowed him a close look at machine shops across Vicksburg, including those at Cameron Technologies, Eaton Manufacturing, Batesville Casket Company, International Paper and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Research and Development Center.

“He’s even an assistant teacher and he’s won awards at district and state Skills USA competitions in earlier years,” Maples said.

Britt’s role as an assistant teacher was made possible through his selection for the Career Pathways Experience, which allows him to assist Maples and fellow students.

The Skills USA National Competition will be June 22-26. First-, second- and third-place winners in the national competition are eligible for college scholarships from the Gene Haas Foundation of Oxnard, Calif., which honors winning students through the National Institute of Metalworking Skills.

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.

At Hinds CC, Beemon Hall mosaic merges science, art

At Hinds CC, Beemon Hall mosaic merges science, art

Paula Duren

Paula Duren

The following story was originally published in the spring 2015 issue of Hindsight alumni magazine.

For a video interview with Paula Lick Duren about her mosaic, see https://youtu.be/zdogwy48DbA

Six years ago a trip to Costa Rica gave Hinds Community College art instructor Paula Lick Duren (1973) of Raymond an idea for an art project. She didn’t dream at the time it would take nearly five years to complete, and that it would one day find a home in the newly renovated science building, Beemon Hall, on the Raymond Campus.

That might seem like an unusual setting for the 4-foot-by-8-foot brightly colored mosaic, but once you know the inspiration behind it that makes perfect sense.

Duren, a Raymond native, grew up five blocks away from Hinds. Enrolling at Hinds was a foregone conclusion. As an art major she studied under former art department chair Bob Dunaway.

“I took drawing, painting and ceramics — everything they offered because I had always drawn and always created things. I knew I wanted to be an artist,” she said.

She finished her bachelor’s degree at the University of Southern Mississippi in 1975 and then signed up for the Army in order to get the G.I. Bill to pay for a master’s degree. “I went in as the helicopters were landing in Vietnam picking up people at the embassy,” she said.

She spent her three years in Washington, first as a Morse Code translator and then as a graphic illustrator for military intelligence. She married, lost her husband in a car accident, remarried and had a baby. She eventually finished the master’s degree she started while she was in the military at Mississippi College in 1986 while working as a graduate assistant at Hinds for Dunaway and Russell Schneider.

After Dunaway retired and Schneider became chair in 1990, Duren came on staff full time with stints as the Art Club adviser and Marie Hull Art Gallery director. Her first job at Hinds included teaching classes at different locations, even at Grand Gulf Nuclear Plant.

In 2008 she was invited on the international study trip to Costa Rica in the Honors Environmental Biology class taught by Sharon Feaster. The program was led by then Honors Institute dean Kristi Sather-Smith. Duren enrolled as a student in the class but also went as an art teacher. “I took sketch books and a notebook,” she said.

Everyone took cameras and shared photos. She became fascinated with the art in Costa Rica. “I started noticing all the mosaics. They would do mosaics in rock and stone, tumbled glass and shells and even painting them. It was just everywhere. It was on the wheels of coffee carts. It was painted on the walls. Or it was in jewelry. It was mosaics everywhere,” she said.

“So I said let’s make a mosaic. Oh, we can do it,” she said. But Duren felt that stone would be too heavy. She came up with the idea of using paint sample chips. She and many others collected them over time, separating them in piles by color family.

Using photos, her sketchbook and notebook as guides, Duren penciled scenes and wildlife from Costa Rica onto the stained board. Duren drafted the students from the initial trip as well as a follow-up trip, plus Art Club members and instructors who were part of international study trips to spend thousands of hours cutting the samples into tiny, irregularly shaped pieces and gluing them onto the board.

Sather-Smith, who retired in summer 2013, wanted the mosaic for the back wall in the Honors headquarters in Jenkins Hall. But Feaster was keen on having it in Beemon Hall because of the wildlife it depicted from the environmental biology trip.

“When she initially talked about creating the mural, I was so hoping that one day it could be hung in Beemon Hall,” Feaster said. “Today, we are delighted to have it here in Beemon, and we often see students reflecting upon it. It provides the perfect opportunity for the biology faculty to encourage them to consider participating in the next study in Costa Rica!”

When an extensive renovation of Beemon Hall was completed just before the spring 2015 semester began, the mosaic was mounted in a wood frame under Plexiglas and put on the wall under special lighting.

“I didn’t know it was up until (Jan. 6) convocation. I was flabbergasted,” Duren said. Duren’s next project is to create a legend that will explain what’s depicted in it.

About the mosaic:

The top part of the mosaic is the skyline that includes Costa Rica’s Arenal Volcano. The top left side is daylight with the right side going into the night.

It includes a stream, waterfalls, the bay, the rainforest, the coffee fields, banana plantation and mangroves. It also includes “every creature that I could think of that we had seen,” Duren said. Those include the spider monkeys, howling monkeys, viper snakes, the Blue Morpho butterfly and other insects, parrots, toucans, the hummingbirds, sea turtles, crab, octopus.

 

About Beemon Hall:

With a total construction cost of a little more than $4.1 million, every room in Beemon Hall, approximately 25 classrooms and labs, plus offices, was upgraded. Its last renovation was in 1983. The renovation started in June 2012 and finished in November 2014.

The general contractor for the project was Coleman Hammons Construction Company Inc. of Brandon. The architect was Duvall Decker Architects, P.A., Jackson.

Beemon Hall is named for T.T. Beemon, who was science chairman on the Raymond Campus and taught biology from 1946 to 1983.

He and his wife Emma were named co-winners of the Alumni Service Award in 1990. He died in September 2007.

As part of the first-ever Earth Day Celebration at Hinds Community College’s Rankin Campus, Phi Theta Kappa members, other students and faculty highlighted the benefits of recycling and the fact that monies earned from recycling fund student scholarships.

“We hope to encourage awareness of and a significant increase in recycling to benefit our students, our college and the community,” said Joy Rhoads, geography and history instructor and adviser for the Rankin Campus Phi Theta Kappa.

Jason Pope, director of Sustainability for Hinds Community College, said local businesses and individuals donate their recyclables to Hinds. “The Hinds County Sheriff’s Department uses our trucks and trailers to pick up and deliver the recyclables to the Hinds Community College Recycling Facility located near the prison,” Pope said. “The Sheriff’s Department provides free labor throughout the process of picking up, sorting and baling the recyclables in preparation for selling the goods. We then coordinate shipping and selling the recyclables to a recycling facility.”

After all of the expenses from program operations are paid – maintenance on trucks, trailers, baling equipment, etc., the proceeds are then used for scholarships. Those benefiting from the scholarships are Hinds Community College Honors Students at the Raymond Campus, who volunteer in the program, and the prisoners at the Hinds County Penal Farm who take GED classes and other vocational classes.

Hinds CC Phi Theta Kappa chapter, members honored at regional, international conventions

Phi Theta Kappa logo

RAYMOND – Hinds Community College’s Gamma Lambda Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa was named third finalist among 1,300 chapters worldwide for Most Distinguished Chapter at the PTK International Convention April 15-19 in San Antonio.

The honor marked a jump from eighth finalist at the 2014 international competition and was among eight accolades the Raymond Campus chapter won at the annual gathering.

“The International Hallmark Awards recognize individual and chapter devotion to the ideals of PTK — leadership scholarship, and service. Our chapter officers, members, and advisors met weekly through the school year, gave up time in the summer, and simply lived, ate, and breathed Phi Theta Kappa. The tension at the international convention was palpable as we waited in a screaming audience of 3,900 to see how we might do this year. When our named was called for that very first award, we had students who jumped, screamed, and cried as we walked on stage. We are so proud of our students and their achievements,” said Debbie McCollum, Gamma Lambda advisor.

Awarded individually at the international convention were History Instructor Ben Cloyd, winner of the Paragon Award for new advisors, Darrell Jones, named Distinguished Chapter Member, and Computer Science Instructor Dr. Johannah Williams, winner of the Distinguished Advisor Award.

Gamma Lambda Chapter also won Distinguished Honors in Action and Distinguished Theme Awards at both the regional and international competitions. The theme for their research and study projects was based on the PTK Honors Study Topic, “Frontiers and the Spirit of Exploration: Quests for Human Expression.” The chapter’s research focused on the negative effects of excessive cellphone usage. Also, the chapter duplicated its Distinguished College Project Award for a Student Health Fest in October.

Honors won last week followed honors won March 6-7 at the organization’s Mississippi/Louisiana Regional Conference in Baton Rouge, where Gamma Lambda was named Most Distinguished Chapter. In all, 15 individual and chapter awards carried the chapter’s name. Additionally, four PTK chapters at Hinds campuses earned Five Star Chapter distinctions — Gamma Lambda, Alpha Beta Xi Chapter, at Utica; Alpha Omega Chi, at Vicksburg; and Alpha Omicron Omega Chapter, at Rankin. Alpha Beta Xi also picked up an award at regionals, for its project in the Exploring the Natural Environment category that focused on the effects of nuclear waste on the environment.
