Hinds CC hosts Nov. 8 Career Exploration Day

Students and parents can learn about potential careers and programs that lead to those careers during a Hinds Community College Career Exploration Day at the Rankin Campus.

The Career Exploration Day will feature not only Hinds Community College programs such as Associate Degree Nursing and Diesel Equipment Technology but also local business and industries that are there to demonstrate their professions and the kinds of skilled employees they hire.

The Nov. 8 Career Exploration Day is sponsored by Baptist Health Systems, Empire Truck Services, Stribling Equipment and Hinds Community College. But the event will also feature numerous other employers with interactive displays that allow students and parents to see for themselves the potential for jobs in the community.

“Our goal is not only to inform our community about the many different career and technical programs that Hinds has to offer but also to demonstrate that there are jobs for those who are ready and willing to be trained,” said Kathryn Cole, director of Enrollment Services. “We want students to touch, feel and experience the jobs that can be theirs with the right education and training.”

The Career Exploration Day is open to the public from 12 noon to 3 p.m. on Nov. 8 at the Muse Center on the Rankin Campus.

The morning will focus on students beginning in eighth grade in the Pearl and Rankin County school districts who will participate in the Career Exploration Day.

As Mississippi’s largest community college, Hinds Community College is a comprehensive institution offering quality, affordable educational opportunities with academic programs of study leading to seamless university transfer and career and technical programs teaching job-ready skills.

Hinds CC named among best for ‘two-year vocational, trade schools’

High school seniors munch and mingle at Hinds CC Thursday Night Lights

RAYMOND – Music isn’t just a passing interest for Carlee Edwards – it’s her passion to play and teach others around her at the same time.

Edwards, a Florence High School senior, plans to take her talents on the clarinet in the school’s musical ensembles to the Hinds Eagle Marching band, which provided some of the highlights at this year’s Thursday Night Lights pregame recruiting event Oct. 6.

(Hinds Community College/Tammi Bowles)

“My first band director in high school was so passionate about it,” Edwards said. “I want to keep inspiring kids and teach others.”

The recruiting event is a chance for prospective students and their families to find out about Hinds’ academic transfer programs and more than 80 career and technical program options. Faculty and staff in booths set up across from Joe Renfroe Stadium offered an array of information on housing, athletics, honors program opportunities, and the college’s multitude of other activities outside of the classroom.

Kambrial Love, a Raymond High School senior, was on hand with a group of friends also interested in programs of study at Hinds.

“I’m trying for biology,” Love said. “I like knowing what’s going on around us every day.”

Front row, from left, are Raymond High School seniors Jalisa Mosley, Ragean Russell, Kambrial Love; back row, from left, Jala Hunter, Tyihnna Johnson, Shamaria Singleton, Reneisha Sweet, Jasmine Moncure.

Prospects create an applicant profile and get on the college’s mailing list so they can be sent the latest updates on programs and services, plus other details such as deadlines for scholarship applications.

“Thursday Night Lights is a great event to come to because it’s both information and a lot of fun,” said Kathryn Cole, district director of Enrollment Services. “It’s one where you can just kick back and relax. We eat burgers, listen to the band, watch our Hi-Steppers and cheerleaders perform, and just have a good time.”
