Hinds CC Vicksburg students inducted into National Technical Honor Society

Both of the mother-daughter duo are students in the Culinary Arts Technology Department at Hinds Community College Vicksburg-Warren Campus, both want to own a bakery and both are among an elite group of students who are charter members in the 42-year-old campus’ first National Technical Honor Society chapter.

The induction ceremony for eight students, seven in Culinary and one in Industrial Maintenance, was Wednesday, April 26, on the Vicksburg Campus.

Guest speaker chef William Furlong, the current manager of Newk’s Eatery on Pemberton Boulevard, encouraged the students to work hard to reach their goals.

That’s exactly what Grant, 38, and Reynolds, 19, plan to do. Each has said she wants to team with the other after school to open and own a wedding cake bakery, and both said they enrolled in the Culinary Arts Department to better their chances of following their dream.

Dean Marvin Moak offered his congratulations to the students and the local chapter.

“I am tickled to have this organization on this campus and I commend the advisers and the students who are participating in the prestigious organization,” he said.

The other culinary students inducted into the society are Barbara Evans, Robert Davis, Robert Nelson, Daja Shears-Williams and American Johnson. The Industrial Maintenance inductee is Austin House.

NTHS was established in 1984 in South Carolina for outstanding career and technical students of workforce vocational educational institutions in the United States. It serves more than 3,800 high schools and colleges in all 50 states.

The organization’s goals are to honor achievements of leading career and technical education students, to provide scholarships and cultivate excellence in today’s skilled workforce.

NTHS works with other career-technical student organizations of which Hinds is a member.

Matthew Campbell, department chair for the Culinary Arts Technology Department on the Vicksburg Campus, said he has nothing but praise for all of the students who have chosen to pursue membership in the society.

“Each and every one of them has worked hard, and this is payoff,” he said.

He pointed out that several of the inductees, who are among the 40 students in the program, had come to the department after being out of school for up to 25 years, one is an Army veteran who served in Iraq and one is a security guard on campus who was encouraged by his environment to take classes.

The technical degree in culinary arts requires three semesters of class and kitchen work, and day and night classes are available. Students can earn an associate’s degree with an additional semester of study.

The sponsor for the new chapter is Rhonda Dorsey, coordinator of the campus’ Workforce Development Program.

“One of the goals of NTHS is to see that deserving technical students are recognized,” Dorsey said. “Career and technical employees are the backbone of our country’s workforce.”

Gwen Post White, Hinds President Dr. Clyde Muse

Gwen Post White, Hinds President Dr. Clyde Muse

She attended Clinton High School from 1951 to 1955 where she lettered in three sports — basketball, tennis and track — and was a member of the state championship track team and district championship tennis team. But it’s in basketball where she really excelled, scoring more than 3,000 points. During her senior year alone, she scored 1,050 points for a 29-point per game average.

She continued her career at the collegiate level at then-Hinds Junior College from 1955 to 1956, winning Most Athletic in fall 1956. White was a part of the 1956 state championship tennis team and lettered in basketball. She also played basketball at Mississippi College.

White showed her love and passion for sports even long after her playing days were over, coaching track, tennis, basketball and softball at Clinton High School, Canton High School, McCluer Academy, Belhaven University and Northwest Rankin High School.

All told, White coached seven state championship teams in three different sports. Her career basketball coaching record was an astounding 373-101. While coaching tennis, she had 325 victories to only 26 defeats for a winning percentage of 93 percent. She also coached three undefeated state championship track teams.

White helped create the high school all-star girls basketball game in 1965 and introduced AAU girls’ basketball and track and field to Mississippi. White was named All-Star coach in three sports: tennis, basketball and softball. She retired from coaching in 2012 after 51 years.

She was the first female in the Mississippi Association of Coaches and was inducted into the Mississippi Association of Coaches Hall of Fame in 1990, the Hinds Community College Sports Hall of Fame in 1993, the Belhaven University Athletics Hall of Fame in 1998 and the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame in 2015.

State legislator presents House Resolution to Hinds CC men’s soccer team

State legislator presents House Resolution to Hinds CC men’s soccer team

State Rep. Tom Weathersby, R-Florence, recently presented the Hinds Community College men’s soccer team with a House resolution honoring them for their 2016-2017 state and Region 23 championships, as well as other accomplishments.

Weathersby presented the Resolution, passed during the legislative session, on April 24 at Fountain Hall on the Raymond Campus.

“When I look over this room at the players here, I’m so impressed. You can tell this is just a really good bunch of young men and a lot of young men who would be easy to coach,” he said. “It was unbelievable the number of games that y’all have won over the last 18 years, as well as all the accomplishments the soccer team has made.”

Doug Williams, who was named Mississippi Association of Community and Junior Colleges Coach of the Year for the 10th time in 2016-2017, has been soccer coach at Hinds for 19 years. He and former coach Tom Shepherd, for whom the soccer field on the Raymond Campus is named, are the only two men’s soccer coaches the college has had since the program began in 1989.

“Hinds has the oldest soccer program in the state, and we’ve only had two coaches in all that time. Tom Shepherd paved the way before me,” said Williams, soccer coach since 2000.  “When the soccer program first began they borrowed old baseball uniforms to wear as soccer uniforms. Over the years the administration of the college has really supported us and built us a great soccer facility, gave us scholarships, and just done whatever we needed to get the support we needed and continue to build and improve the soccer program.

“As a result of that, we’ve been able to attract phenomenal students. These guys are great students, they’re super guys. These guys have been easy to coach,” he said.

Hinds CC Vicksburg-Warren Campus holds College Night

 VICKSBURG – Patanya Williams has chased her goal of working in the medical field once before but didn’t have the proper support.

“I’m just getting older now and I have a better outlook on life and school,” said Williams, 43, after stopping by College Night at Hinds Community College Vicksburg-Warren Campus to get more information on the Practical Nursing program.

Working security in recent years has paid the bills. She hopes a credential in a well-respected program can pay her passion and her pocket.

Ferran Parker, a senior at Warren Central High School, is pursuing his own passion with gusto.

“I enjoy working on cars,” Parker said, visiting with Automotive Technology instructors. “I’ve worked at it for four years already, doing people’s cars.”

Each was among prospective students young and old who attended the come-and-go event. High school students and adults looking to return to school were able to find out about admissions, majors, financial aid, registration and more.

“We look forward to many of the hundreds of juniors and seniors from Vicksburg and Warren County and the surrounding area enrolling at the Vicksburg-Warren Campus and taking advantage of what we have to offer.” said Campus Dean Marvin Moak.

Deborah Nicole Hartley, of Vicksburg, who’ll be making the switch from homeschooling to the classroom setting for college, could have two goals in mind – one to satisfy each of her passions.

“The nursing field is an option because I like helping people and making them feel better,” she said. “And I can pursue my art work here, with my canvas and pencil art.”
