Hinds CC Career Exploration Day showcases career, program options

Jacob Alumbaugh has mad skills with a leaf blower that won him a chance for a prize at Hinds Community College’s Career Exploration Day.

His task at Hinds’ Landscape Management Technology display: use a leaf blower to navigate a golf ball through a maze into a bulldozer bucket in the least amount of time. The task was made more interesting because the leaf blower was virtually soundless.

“I did have a lawn mowing service for a while,” admitted Alumbaugh of Brandon, a senior at Hartfield Academy in Flowood.

He is planning to enroll at Hinds Community College to major in agribusiness. “I’ve been a farmer for the past four years. I’ve fallen in love with it. I want to continue doing what I love,” he said.

Alumbaugh was among more than 1,200 Jackson-area middle and high school students who went to the Career Exploration Day at the Muse Center on the Rankin Campus to learn about potential careers and programs that lead to those careers.

Evening classes at Hinds CC help students plan new careers

RAYMOND – Some students at Hinds have gained more than just an hour of sleep this past week. Quite possibly, they’ve progressed toward new careers by taking evening classes to juggle day jobs and family life.

“It gives me flexibility with my job and my children,” said Gwendolyn Russell, 43, a Jackson mother of four who works at the Nissan plant in Canton by day and studies toward her associate’s degree by night at the Rankin Campus.

“The support system here is great,” said Russell, who plans to pursue a nursing degree down the road. “There are tutors here who will sit down with you one-on-one who’ll get you what you need. They help you understand your work.”

Registration for the spring 2017 semester is now open for current and prospective students at Hinds Community College. On-campus classes for 16-week sessions and the first eight-weeks begin Jan. 9 with second eight-week classes, both on-campus and online, to begin March 6. Sixteen-week and first eight-week online classes begin Jan. 17.

 

A class schedule after 5 p.m. has worked out nicely for Allen Garrison, of Vicksburg, as he plots a career behind the welder’s shield.

“The benefit is that my wife also works days like me and can be with our daughter at night without a babysitter,” said Garrison, who earned a career certificate through the welding program at the Vicksburg-Warren Campus and is working toward an Associate of Applied Science degree.

Students pursuing careers in medical-related fields also see benefits by having classes at night.

“It offers a longer break in the day, with all the classes I take,” said Richard Neal, a Utica Campus student taking pre-pharmacy courses. Fellow STEM student Caitlyn Richmond, an aspiring Veterinary Technology student currently taking core science classes, also sees benefits to taking classes in the evening.

“It can be a better environment at night for learning,” Richmond said.

 

To register for classes for any term, students must first be admitted to the college. After meeting with a counselor, new students can then register for classes. Offices are open 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and until 6 p.m. on Tuesdays. The Admissions office can be reached at 601.857.3212 or by visiting the Admissions tab on the Hinds website at www.hindscc.edu.

A program on making a bee-friendly garden will follow at 1:30 p.m., moderated by Martha Hill, director of Hinds’ Landscape Management Technology program. Four metro-area beekeepers, Harold Watson, John Hackney, Matthew Giammalvo and Richard Wakefield, will hold a panel discussion at 2:30 p.m. to close out the program. Also, beekeepers are encouraged to display and sell their products as part of the event. The conference is expected to conclude at 3:30 p.m.

The workshop is part of this year’s Honors in Action Project, which encourages students to take community action in response to a topic of global interest.

Students in the program have been researching the importance of agricultural pollinators such as honeybees and environmental challenges they have faced in the 21st century. Honeybee populations have decreased significantly in recent years, and because bees are integral pollinators worldwide, many scientists see a need for protecting bee habitats and protecting them from manmade threats, such as certain insecticides. Hinds is happy to offer this workshop to increase awareness of pollinator issues in the community.
