Hinds County students enjoy field day at Hinds CC

Lots of games, popcorn and snow cones along with bright sunshine and laughter. That was the day for more than 100 Hinds County students in the special education program who participated in the annual field day at Hinds Community College on April 21.

Hinds has been hosting the field day at Joe Renfroe Stadium since 2010. The finale of the day is always the wheelchair race, this year won by Brannon Martin and coach Robert Pittman.
