Nov. 4 Gala is Hinds CC’s yearlong Centennial celebration’s last hurrah

Hinds Community College alumni Gov. and Mrs. Phil Bryant are co-hosts for the Nov. 4 Centennial Gala, the culminating event of the year-long Centennial celebration. U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran is also scheduled to attend.

The Gala will be a festive time to don cocktail attire for an elegant dinner at the Muse Center on the Rankin Campus, the perfect venue in beautiful surroundings. The Gala will showcase the best of Hinds Community College’s talent plus allow an opportunity for all to celebrate 100 Years of Community Inspired Service.

The evening will begin with a 5:30 p.m. reception and silent auction featuring a number of hand-crafted and custom-designed items. The Hinds family will be among those providing auction items, including a Chef’s Dinner for eight, a custom Christmas card design, a child’s playhouse, a fire pit, deer feeders and barbecue grills.

The reception will also feature a tribute to the presidents who have shepherded Hinds through 100 years with special emphasis on President George McLendon, President Dr. Robert Murrah Mayo and current President Dr. Clyde Muse, who is in his 40th year at the college.

The Centennial Gala dinner and program begin at 6:30 p.m. inside the Muse Center auditorium. Entertainment throughout the evening will include the Utica Campus Jubilee Singers, the Hinds Hi-Steppers, guitarist John Jackson, the Faculty Jazz Trio and the Hinds Jazz Band. The Montage Theatre of Dance will perform “Dancing through the Decades.” Alumni performers will present an original musical composition, “Dear Hinds,” created especially for the Centennial by Hinds music instructor Tracy Crosby.

The Gala brings the 2017 Centennial year to a close after more than 100 special events celebrating the rich history of the college. Alumni, business partners, community leaders, employees and friends of the college are invited to the Gala.

“With the proceeds from the Centennial Gala, we plan to create a Centennial Endowment that will be a lasting legacy for future needs of the college, including student scholarships,” said Jackie Granberry, executive director of the Hinds Community College Foundation.

Tickets to the Centennial Gala are $150 each and must be purchased in advance. Table sponsorships are also available for $1,000, which includes eight tickets and recognition in the Gala program.

Anyone unable to attend the Gala can make a donation to the Centennial Endowment or take advantage of the Centennial celebration to set up a new scholarship. For more information on individual tickets, table sponsorships or donations to the Centennial Endowment, call 601.857.3363 or email Granberry at jgranberry@hindscc.edu You can also click here for the form to give and/or purchase Gala tickets or click here to give and/or purchase Gala tickets online.

Gateway Brass is a brass quintet with percussion which showcases military professionalism at Department of Defense ceremonies and entertaining public functions throughout the Gulf Coast region on behalf of the Air Force. The virtuoso group of active duty airman musicians perform musical styles spanning five centuries.

The ensemble is based at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, Texas. All enlisted airmen must first pass through JBSA-Lackland, making it known as “The Gateway to the Air Force”, which became the inspiration for the group’s name.
