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.
