Hinds CC nursing, allied health students graduate

On Friday, Hinds graduated nearly 900 students who received 1,263 degrees and certificates, meaning some graduates received more than one credential. Of that number 554 chose to participate in one of the three ceremonies on Friday at the Muse Center on the Rankin Campus.

Among the graduates, nine achieved summa cum laude, a 4.0 grade point average; 46 achieved magna cum laude, 3.6 to 3.99 GPA and 110 achieved cum laude, 3.2 to 3.59.

Hinds President Dr. Clyde Muse noted that many students want to make a better life for them and their families.

“The power of education is that it drives our vision for a better life.  And, while the graduates who sit upon this stage today represent a diverse set of circumstances, they are connected by their belief that a community college education is a step up to a broader opportunity to build a better life,” Muse said.

Dexter Holloway, assistant executive director for Workforce and Economic Development with the Mississippi Community College Board, was the speaker for the nursing and allied health graduate ceremony on Friday, Dec. 16.

“Some of you who have scratched, scraped and clawed to get this degree;  juggling the responsibilities, trying to find enough time to study, making sure that you had your tuition and funds to get to class,” Holloway said. “Congratulations – because you made it! These trials and tribulations will help you with challenges to come. Cherish this tremendous accomplishment. You have so very much to be proud of, and be assured that all of us here celebrating with you today are very proud of you.”
