“I’m thinking of doing graphic design or possibly even architecture,” Sanders said. “I have some family in architecture.”

Julie Harrison, of Pearl High School, already wants to help mold young lives or aid them back to health.

“It’s either nursing or early childhood education for me,” Harrison said. “It’s all about helping people.”

They were among about 250 high school juniors, seniors and others who attended Rankin College Day on Feb. 24 at the Muse Center on the Rankin Campus, which featured exhibits for all academic and career-tech programs, activities and organizations Hinds has to offer.

For those still studying for their high school diploma, it’s a time to find out how Hinds’ programs of study can build a successful career.

“I’ve wanted to do television production since I was a kid,” said Myrandis McGrone, of Northwest Rankin High School.

Prospective students interacted with faculty and Hinds students about admissions, scholarships, majors, student life and more.

“We look forward to many of the students from Rankin County and the surrounding area enrolling at the Rankin 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.
