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.”

Job opportunities aplenty, varied at Hinds CC District Job Fair

RAYMOND – Christian Hollins is studying Architectural Engineering at Hinds Community College, but isn’t limiting himself when it comes to finding employment while he finishes his degree.

“I’m on track to graduate in December, so I’m looking for some part-time employment,” said Hollins, of Jackson, among the 300 or so Hinds students at the 2017 Jobs For Eagles District Job Fair on April 12, held in Mayo Gym on the Raymond Campus.

Hollins works in a grocery store part-time and visited with Whole Foods at the expo-style event. “I’ve also visited with UPS and Nissan.”

Career and technical fields such as automotive, hospitality and sales were among booths, along with mainstays in the healthcare, foodservice, gaming and temporary employment service areas.

Robin Robinson, of Clinton, earned an associate’s from Hinds in Marketing Management Technology last year. She worked the tables at the job fair to keep her options as open as possible.

“I’m here to find a job and get some contacts out there,” said Robinson, who wants to get into hotel management and sales, but realizes there’s value in talking to as many recruiters as possible. She inquired about opportunities everywhere from heavy industry, at the Milwaukee Tools table, to staffing agencies, at the TempStaff table.

“They always have something to say that’s helpful, and I like that,” she said.

Elisha Davis and Hannah Reihl, two Barber/Stylist students from Vicksburg, are equally curious about job opportunities outside their comfort zone.

“I don’t want to limit myself in what I can learn,” Reihl said as the two chatted up a representative of University of Mississippi Medical Center.

Davis was impressed by the versatility shown to her by recruiters at the event.

“I liked how they seem to be able to work around our schedule as students,” she said.

“We want to keep people working,” said Debbie Horn, of TempStaff. “And we want people to stay in Mississippi.”

Hinds CC Jackson Campus holds College Carnival

 RAYMOND – College Carnival at Hinds Community College Jackson Campus-Academic/Technical Center on April 7 brought out lots of raw talent, desire and ability from metro Jackson high schoolers.

“I want to pursue art because people my age need an outlet for anxieties they’re having,” said Nakia Rodgers, a senior at Lanier High School and one of many high school students and others at the come-and-go campus recruiting event.

Rodgers toted her anime’-inspired graphic novel to show off to potential instructors in art programs at Hinds.

Pernell Branson, of Jackson, brought his curiosity and a desire to complete his high school equivalency and beyond, with Hinds’ help.

“I’m finding out about the different trades I can take here,” Branson said.

Held annually, these events held at all six Hinds locations give prospective students of all ages a chance to find out about everything they need to enroll at the college. At College Carnival, prospective students met with Jackson Campus faculty and staff, learn about admissions, majors, financial aid and registration – all while enjoying free food and prizes.

“We look forward to many of the hundreds of juniors and seniors from metro Jackson and the surrounding area enrolling at the Jackson Campus and taking advantage of what we have to offer.” said Dr. Norman Session, vice president of the Rankin Campus and the Jackson Campus-Academic/Technical Center.

Khourtland Smith, an eighth-grader at Whitten Preparatory Middle School, and Nicholas Adams, a junior at Jim Hill High School, wasted no time finding out from the experts how to hone their skills in electrical engineering.

“The wiring and making things work excites me about it,” said Smith, who job-shadowed Electrical Engineering Technology instructor Thalamus Marshall during the event, trying his hand at a small-scale simple motor.

Jovonica Owens and Arielle Jones, both seniors at Callaway High School, are looking to continue family traditions of helping people once they enter college.

“I want to do EMT training,” Owens said. “It’s such a rush, and it’s in my family. My sister is also becoming one, too.”

Nursing is in Jones’ blood, she said, as “it’s always what I wanted to do, because my aunt and sister are nurses.”

The same goes for Tacora Thomas, a junior at Jim Hill High School, who attended the event with her father, Cory Thomas.

“I want to do pediatric nursing and be able to work with babies,” she said.

Hinds CC Vicksburg-Warren Campus celebrates college Centennial

VICKSBURG – It was the Vicksburg-Warren Campus’ turn to shine in Hinds Community College’s yearlong Centennial celebration.

A reception and campus tour April 6 highlighted resolutions of support for the college from local government and included the campus’ contribution to a list of 100 people through the decades passionate about Hinds. The college will announce the full list at a separate reception in August.

“Let me just say publicly, Dr. Muse, I don’t know of any other institution but Hinds that has made as much impact on my life,” Vicksburg Mayor George Flaggs said during the program, addressing Hinds President Dr. Clyde Muse. “The time I had to come to this college couldn’t have come at a better time in my life.”

Warren County Board of Supervisors President Richard George lauded the 39-year college president for his vision and having details in line when it came to requesting funding for the new career-tech facility.

“The man came with a plan and a request,” George said. “We honored the request, and he delivered the plan. It’s a most gratifying and opportune moment for us to fund this organization and work with Dr. Muse.”

Muse credited the Warren County Board of Supervisors’ support, in particular their agreement to allocate more money to an existing property tax millage for Hinds. The funds will finance construction of a two-story, 40,000-square-foot Academic & Career-Technical Building in the front of campus. Two parking lots and a bus drop-off are also proposed as part of the project, plus a new access road to connect the new parking area to existing parking spaces.

“We have enjoyed working with all of you in Vicksburg and Warren County,” said Hinds President Dr. Clyde Muse, noting the presence of Vicksburg-area legislators present for the ceremony, state Sen. Briggs Hopson and state Rep. Oscar Denton. “Since I came here in 1978, it’s been a treasure. You’ve always been represented by outstanding people in the state legislature, on the board of trustees of Hinds, on our Foundation board and the list goes on and on.

“This would not have been possible without (Board President) Richard George and the other members of the Board of Supervisors for providing the funding so that it will be open and available 24/7 for economic development, training, academic classrooms and classrooms for River City Early College.”

Centennial-themed concert strikes high note with alum’s composition

RAYMOND — Part of the music for the occasion of Hinds’ Centennial comes courtesy of a budding composer whose talent was arranged on the Raymond Campus.

Tonight’s Centennial concert features the Hinds Wind and Percussion ensembles, the Delta State University Wind Ensemble, and a combined brass band between the two schools. The program also features a work by that talented young composer, Warren Ertle, who earned a degree from Hinds in 2012. His piece is titled “Beneath the Magnolias” and was commissioned by Music Chair and Director of Bands Shane Sprayberry last spring. As Ertle puts it, it has a “Mississippi theme.”

“The instrumentation is for a full wind ensemble. Anyone who’s been around Hinds for any length of time can be prepared to be entertained by it,” Ertle said. “It’s got high energy in some parts, but also has slower lyrical parts. It has about everything you’d want in a five-minute piece.”

Works by nationally-known composer/musicians Ivan Trevino and Kevin McKee round out the program. The music starts at 7 p.m. in Hogg Auditorium at Cain-Cochran Hall. Admission is free.

The concert is but another way Ertle’s composition talents have been put “out there” in the classical music world. His compositions for piano and marimba have been performed by some of the best in Mississippi, including the Jackson Metropolitan Chamber orchestra and the Mississippi College Symphonic Winds.

The Terry native credits his time in the Eagle bands for helping turn a budding passion for music into a career pursuit.

“A lot of folks just try to get their core credits out the way at Hinds or any community college,” he said. “But, I didn’t – I declared music as my subject right from day one. The music department will help guide you along the way, even if you’re just starting out and not sure about music. They can guide students and help them figure out whether music is for them or not.”

A prized pupil’s work was a natural choice when it came time to commission a piece for the Centennial Concert program.

“Warren is an amazingly talented musician and composer,” Sprayberry said. “It was an honor to have him as a member of the Hinds Eagle Marching Band, Wind Ensemble and Music Department.”

After Hinds, Ertle joined the Mississippi Army National Guard and spent two years with the Army’s Cavaliers Drum & Bugle Corps in Rosemont, Ill. Last year, Ertle finished his bachelor’s degree in music at Mississippi College.

These days, he works at Jackson Prep accompanying the school’s show choirs on piano while staying in good musical shape taking composition classes at Mississippi College while working toward a master’s degree. His musical chops stay sharp as a pianist and percussionist for the 41st Army Band in Jackson. His fiancé, mezzo-soprano Jamie Ferguson, is pursuing hers at the Boston Conservatory.
