“This is the first time at Hinds Community College has won in any category at SROW,” said Steven Jones, associate director of Student Housing and Residence Life at the Raymond Campus. “This is a major accomplishment for our orientation leaders because SROW attracted nearly 2,200 students and professionals from more than 80 universities in 10 states.”

Students who attended the conference were Denicia Diew, of Yazoo City; Abigail West, of Hamilton, in Monroe County; Amber Gladney, of Jackson; Brinkley Branch, of Raymond; Evan Jefferson, of Jackson; Aliyyah Blakely, of Flint, Mich.; Myia Harris, of Clinton; Shantianna Thames, of Louisville, Miss.; LaDaysha Washington, of Mendenhall.

The Hinds contingent’s 4-minute skit was judged for plot/theme development and how it was connected to the orientation program. Students portrayed characters on campus who would seek assistance from student services.

The event was put on by NODA, an international association of education professionals, students, faculty and related organizations which promotes the fields of orientation, transition and retention.
