Hinds CC hosts 2014 Student Leadership Conference
RAYMOND- Hinds Community College hosted the 2014 Student Leadership Conference at Eagle Ridge Conference Center Sept. 23. The theme was “Innovation: The future is leadership.”
The conference began with introductions by college officials Dr. Theresa Hamilton, vice president for the Raymond Campus, and Dr. Tyrone Jackson, associate vice president and dean of student services. Presentations were given by other college faculty and staff on topics such as resourcefulness, communication, interview skills, dress attire, technology and networking.
The students were treated to a networking luncheon before the keynote address, given by Eddie A. Holloway, assistant vice president for student affairs/dean of students and assistant professor of psychology at the University of Southern Mississippi. In his address, he encouraged students to always carry their “want to” ticket. “You’ve got to want to succeed as hard as you want to breathe,” he said. “A ‘want to’ ticket is a good grade point average, a good attitude, being a good team player, and owning a good watch so you’re always on time.”
