Hollingsworth Gospel Concert funds Hinds CC law enforcement scholarship

The annual Good Old Fashioned Country Gospel Concert for the benefit of the Robert Wallace Hollingsworth Family Scholarship for Law Enforcement at Hinds Community College is at 6:30 p.m., Thursday, June 15 at Cain-Cochran Hall on the Raymond Campus.

The Hinds Community College Foundation recognized its 2016-2017 scholarship recipients, donors and honorees at a reception on Sept. 28 Among those recognized was recipient Anna McCombs, of Clinton, who received the Robert Wallace Hollingsworth Family Scholarship. With her is Jack Hollingsworth, left, of Utica, and Mike Hollingsworth, right, of Vicksburg.

The Hinds Community College Foundation recognized its 2016-2017 scholarship recipients, donors and honorees at a reception on Sept. 28. Among those recognized was recipient Anna McCombs, of Clinton, who received the Robert Wallace Hollingsworth Family Scholarship. With her is Jack Hollingsworth, left, of Utica, and Mike Hollingsworth, right, of Vicksburg.

Admission is free but donations are accepted.

The concert features the Potters Clay Quartet from Houston, Miss., the Born Again Quartet from Byram, Miss-Tenn Trio from Vicksburg, vocalist Jack Hollingsworth from Utica and master of ceremonies Carl Hollingsworth of Byram.

The annual benefit concert began in 2004 to help raise funds for Mike Hollingsworth, Jack Hollingsworth’s son, a Warren County deputy sheriff who was injured in the line of duty. Family members saw such great success with the event that they decided to make it a tradition.

Currently, all proceeds from the benefit go to the Hollingsworth Family Law Enforcement Scholarship, which ultimately helps a deserving Hinds student attend college. The scholarship made its first award to a Hinds student in 2009.

The scholarship is dedicated to five Hollingsworth men, all serving in some capacity in the field of law enforcement. The student receiving the scholarship must be majoring in criminal justice.

Hinds CC hosts eighth annual field day for Hinds County special education students

It’s safe to say that the wheelchair race is Mollie Coward’s favorite event at the special education field day for Hinds County students held at Hinds Community College each year.

This year’s theme for the eighth annual event was “Let Your Light Shine On.” The morning’s fun was capped with a balloon release from the middle of Joe Renfroe field at Hinds’ Raymond Campus. Each balloon was tagged with a student’s name and the email address for Larina Mason, a Hinds alumnae and the organizer – lmason@hinds.k12.ms.us.

Coward, 21, a student at Raymond High School, and teammate and student mentor Jared Keyes, won this year’s wheelchair race, besting Elina Smith, a Byram student, and her teammate Byram Middle School assistant principal Tommy Brumfield.

The special needs students from all the Hinds County schools, teachers and parent chaperones spent the morning playing a variety of games. A big hit was the petting zoo that included snakes, iguanas, rabbits, turtles, hedgehogs, parrot and even a pig.

Hinds CC 3E winner grew Landscape program from ground up

Hinds CC 3E winner grew Landscape program from ground up

Martha Hill didn’t originally set out to be a teacher, but almost 31 years later she is retiring from Hinds Community College’s Landscape Management Technology program that she helped start from scratch.

Hill of Clinton is this year’s recipient of Hinds Community College’s 3E award. The 3E, which stands for Emphasis on Excellence and Enrichment, is the highest award the college gives. The award was a surprise announcement at the April 28 annual Employee Awards Event.

Martha Hill, Hinds' 3E winner for 2017, is pictured with a garden bench made especially for her by the career-technical program on the Raymond Campus.

Martha Hill, Hinds’ 3E winner for 2017, is pictured with a garden bench made especially for her by the career-technical program on the Raymond Campus.

“Martha has a great love and passion for Hinds,” said Vice President Dr. Chad Stocks. “She has been an outstanding instructor, department chair, mentor and friend to all. She has served the landscape community of this state to the fullest and has the utmost respect from its constituents. Martha’s dedication and hard work spills over into her interaction with students and fellow employees. She is a true icon for Hinds and will be greatly missed.”

Through the years, she received many honors, including the Associated Landscape Contractors of America, ALCA Education Foundation Educator of the Year Award in 2003, the Hinds Community College Lifestar award in 2003-2004, her selection as the faculty representative for the annual legislative HEADWAE awards in 2006 and her selection to the Class of 2014 Lawn and Landscape Leadership Awards featured in the Lawn & Landscape Magazine.

“Martha Hill supported the entire college, not just her program. She has always volunteered to help others in any way that they needed,” said Jackie Granberry, executive director of the Hinds Community College Foundation. “Some people just take from the college — Martha always gave back.”

Hill served on the curriculum advisory committee in 1985 when Hinds was exploring adding the program and then was asked to interview as the instructor.

“My degree in Landscape Architecture from Mississippi State University did not include any education classes,” she said. “I wanted to be a part of a large landscape design/build/maintenance company, much like the company I had co-oped with while in college, The Brickman Group. Teaching at Hinds turned out to be an even better opportunity to work with MANY great companies in helping our students find the right fit for their careers. ”

In the early years of teaching, vocational education faculty had to earn continuing education units to maintain their teaching certificates. Hill took classes at the University of Southern Mississippi and Jackson State University to meet those requirements.

“I modeled my teaching style after the great professors I had in college and even some from high school. I tried to give students hands-on experience, which was the best teacher from my co-op experiences; learning by doing,” she said.

Hill’s legacy is her personal involvement and hands-on approach with the students in her program. Throughout her career, she has taken students to numerous conferences and shepherded them through spring plant sale fundraisers, chicken dinners and other activities.

“Seeing the light bulbs come on in my students’ eyes when they realize how vast the landscape industry is and then get excited and passionate about the industry – that’s the most rewarding thing,” she said.

As part of the Centennial, Hill recently hosted a reunion celebrating 30 years of the landscape program.

“Student after student talked about the impact that she had on their lives. One older African American gentleman had most of us in tears telling about his being the only person in his family to get a college degree and how it would not have happened without Martha,” Granberry said.

“He also told about getting to go to Washington, D.C. for a landscape conference and how he had never been out of Mississippi. It was obvious that Martha had done more for him than just teach him about plants.”

On behalf of her program and students, she has also maintained relationships with numerous equipment companies and landscape businesses, including those owned by her former students.

Hill has been an active member of many professional organizations and is often asked to speak at various meetings and conferences. One in particular is the National Association of Landscape Professionals, NALP, the leading national professional organization of landscape contractors and lawn care professionals. The relationships she formed have paid off in many ways, from equipment donations to guest speakers visiting her classrooms.

“I know if I need anything, I can pick up the phone and make my request and those industry leaders will do whatever they can to make it happen,” she said.

Hill plans to continue recruiting for the program after retirement. “I believe in this program and this industry and I want to support it until I die,” she said.

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.
