Hinds CC Scholarships make college affordable; deadline to apply is Feb. 15

Brandon native Tori Bailey didn’t originally plan to come to Hinds Community College after she graduated last May.

Her aspirations were to attend a university but less than “plentiful” scholarships, to use her word, put a hitch in that plan. Then last January she heard a Hinds recruiter speak at a Brandon High School assembly.

Tammi Bowles/Hinds Community College; Tori Bailey “I talked with a friend about how stressful all of the college decisions were, and we began to think about the community college route,” Bailey recalled. “The class sizes were smaller on average at Hinds, so I would be able to get more out of my lessons. Community college would also be much more affordable than a four-year school. This was a major selling point since I would have to pay for my college education myself.”

Bailey applied to Hinds and received a Hinds Community College Foundation scholarship to help pay for her education, “allowing me to spend less time working to pay for my education and more time focusing on my classes and being involved on campus,” she said.

She was among more than 600 students to receive a foundation scholarship in the 2016-2017 year. About 85 percent of students at Hinds receive financial aid of some kind.

New or current students who want to apply for a Hinds Community College Foundation Scholarship for this fall must meet an earlier deadline this year: They have until Feb. 15 to turn in their complete application packets.

The application process for Foundation Scholarships is easy. Students can access the required forms on the college web site under the Admissions tab at www.hindscc.edu or click here.

Students must submit the following documents by Feb. 15 to be considered for a Hinds Community College Foundation Scholarship:

  • An application for admission to Hinds Community College. This application is available on the website at www.hindscc.edu.
  • An application for Foundation Scholarships that includes a summary of why the applicant feels he/she should be considered for a scholarship, a list of achievements and a brief statement of any special financial needs. Also submitting a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is preferred but not required.
  • High school and/or college transcripts. Unofficial transcripts are acceptable for scholarship purposes. Transcripts must demonstrate a cumulative GPA of at least 2.00 in order to be considered.  If the transcript does not include a cumulative GPA, students must submit a verification form completed by the high school counselor. The form is found on the college website.
  • A copy of their ACT scores, if not posted on the high school transcript, or GED scores, if applicable.
  • Three recommendations from individuals (i.e. – school, church, community/civic organizations or work). Students may use the recommendation form available on the website at www.hindscc.edu/DFSA. It is the student’s responsibility to provide copies of the form to the individuals who are providing their recommendations and to have those submitted by the Feb. 15 deadline.

The Hinds Community College Foundation manages nearly 300 scholarship funds.  The Foundation awards more than 600 student scholarships ranging from $300 to $2,400.

Another scholarship opportunity for high school seniors is the ACT scholarship. ACT scholarships range from $1,000-$3,000 per semester. Students who attend Hinds as their first college after high school graduation will automatically receive an ACT scholarships if they have a 21 or above on the ACT.

Hinds CC alumna establishes 3 new endowed scholarships

Hinds CC alumna establishes 3 new endowed scholarships

web_Miley Scholarship_Dorothy Davis Miley

Note: The following story is from the Winter 2016 issue of Hindsight alumni magazine.

For Dorothy Davis Miley, Hinds Community College is like family. She demonstrates in many ways that her love and commitment to the college run deep.

With three new recently endowed family scholarships, the long-time college benefactor has upped her commitment to five fully endowed Hinds scholarships. The three new scholarships are the Dorothy Davis Miley Scholarship, the Louise White Davis Scholarship, named for her mother, and the Mamie Louise Miley Scholarship, named for her daughter, Mamie Louise Miley Griffing of Jackson.

Miley continues to add to the new scholarships as well as two scholarships established earlier. The H.H. “Shine” Davis Endowed Scholarship was established in 1982 in memory of her father, who served for 38 years as a trustee of both the Hinds Junior College and Utica Junior College boards. That scholarship was inspired by “the love my father had for the college,” Miley said.

The Robert Miley Endowed Scholarship was established in memory of her husband in 1992.

Miley began planning the addition of the three new scholarships in 1993 with an investment she gave to the Hinds Community College Foundation. Recognizing that its maturity value would not fully endow three scholarships, she began making monthly contributions to ensure that they would eventually be properly endowed as soon as possible.

“My parents taught me it is better to give than receive. I look on this as an opportunity,” she said. “I only went to Hinds one year, but I enjoyed it so much. I got to know the teachers on a personal basis.”

She particularly wanted to see the awarding of the Dorothy Davis Miley Scholarship. “It was my goal while I’m still on this earth to meet a student that received the scholarship named for me. It was the nicest present for my birthday to meet that student,” she said.

Other than funding the scholarships, Miley has another special long-standing Hinds project: She presents portraits to Hinds campuses for placement in buildings named for particular people. This project also started as a tribute to her family. The first portrait was for her father when the Barber and Beauty School building on the Utica Campus was named for H.H. Davis.

 

“Mrs. Miley has such a wonderful, giving spirit. We are so fortunate at Hinds to be the recipient of much of her generosity,” said Jackie Granberry, vice president for Advancement.

One of Hinds Community College Foundation’s most loyal supporters, Miley was the recipient of the Hinds Community College Alumni Service Award in 2003.

A teacher who retired after 30 years in Jackson Public Schools, Miley graduated from Utica High School and Hinds Junior College. She also graduated from Millsaps College and received a master’s degree from Mississippi College.

Miley now lives in north Jackson but still maintains close ties to Utica where she grew up.

She has been a member of several organizations that allowed her to shine in a service role. She is a member of the Tau Chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma having served as recording secretary, first vice president, president and central district director. She was selected as Woman of Distinction and received the Red Rose Award.

In 2009 the Hinds Foundation honored her at the National Philanthropy Day Recognition Ceremony for her financial support of the college for more than 30 years. In 2013, she received one of the highest awards at the state level – the Zeta State Achievement Award. She has spearheaded the formation of two grants-in-aid for Tau Chapter. One is the Little-Winters and the other is the Dorothy Davis Miley Grant-in-Aid.

She is also a member of the Jackson-Madison Gideons Auxiliary, having served as president, vice president and scripture secretary. She is a member of Kappa Delta Pi Honor Society, J.O.Y., MPE and Mended Hearts (Chapter 76) where she has served as the Sunshine Committee person for many years. She is a lifetime member of the Mississippi Retired Public Employees Association.

Miley is a member of Galloway United Methodist Church in Jackson where she is also a member of Circle 5 U.M.W. and the Ben Fatherree Sunday School Class.

The Louise White Davis Scholarship

web_Miley Scholarship_Herman and Louise Davis

Miley’s mother Louise White Davis was a native of Edwards. She graduated from Central High School in Memphis and Soulle Business School in New Orleans. She came to Utica to work as one of three bookkeepers for Mr. D.C. Simmons.

While in Utica, where she lived most of her life, she met her future husband, H.H. Davis, who worked at Peoples Bank as a teller. After they were married, she and her husband owned and operated “Shine” Davis Grocery. She was also a notary public and a representative for several floral companies.

The Mamie Louise Miley Scholarship

Stellablue Paige Miley Griffing, Jonathan (Jon) Griffing, Greenlee Maye Miley Griffing, Mamie Louise Miley Griffing and Rainey Maize Miley Griffing

Miley’s daughter, Mamie Louise Miley Griffing, is a 1995 graduate of Woodland Hills Baptist Academy. She received bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of Southern Mississippi, in 2000 and 2003, and is near completion of her Specialist’s Degree.

She has taught special education with emphasis on autism at several different public schools. She currently is an adjunct instructor at Hinds’ Rankin Campus.

She is married to Jonathan (Jon) Griffing and they live in Jackson with their three daughters: Greenlee Maye Miley Griffing, 5; Stellablue Paige Miley Griffing, 4; and Rainey.

From left are Puckett High School Principal Robert Crain, Hinds Rankin Campus Vice President Dr. Norman Session, Hinds President Dr. Clyde Muse, Dr. Tom Burnham, Terri Burnham and Sondra Vanderford, assistant principal of Brandon High School.

Dr. Tom Burnham, director of the Principal Corps based at the University of Mississippi, and his wife Terri Burnham created and endowed a new scholarship at Hinds Community College as Dr. Burnham was recognized as 2015 Alumnus of the Year on Oct. 15.

The scholarship is the Tom Burnham Jr. and Cassondra “Sondra” Burnham Vanderford Emerging Leaders Scholarship.

Tom Burnham, a native of Puckett in Rankin County, and his wife, a nationally certified leadership and coaching specialist for the National Institute of School Leadership, designated the scholarship to first be offered to an emerging leader who is a graduate of Puckett High School attending Hinds. If no Puckett High graduate is awarded the scholarship, it is next to be offered to an emerging leader who is a Brandon High graduate.

Tom Burnham graduated from Hinds in 1967. He went on to receive degrees at Mississippi College and Delta State University. His daughter Sondra and son-in-law Craig are both Hinds graduates. His daughter is assistant principal at Brandon High School. Son Tom Jr. was killed in 1985.

Being named Alumnus of the Year “is an honor I never expected to receive,” said Burnham, who served two stints as state superintendent of education in 1992-1997 and 2010-2012. “Hinds is a very special place. Most of us have our own memories of the events and people that made a difference in our lives. Like all organizations, the people at Hinds ARE the difference.

“Hinds was the entry point for a great and wonderful career for me, a career filled with opportunities to make a difference in the lives of many children and the joy of working with so many outstanding people,” he said. “The recognition comes from an institution that embraces and exemplifies the wonderful values of helping individuals that might not find opportunities and encouragement elsewhere.”

In announcing the Tom Burnham Jr. and Cassondra “Sondra” Burnham Vanderford Emerging Leaders Scholarship, Terri Burnham noted that both of them have dedicated their lives to “making a difference with children.”

“Most recently Tom and I have devoted our lives to helping develop young leaders across the state,” she said. “The scholarship is intended to honor the memory of Tom Jr. and to honor Cassondra, who has developed into an outstanding young leader in the field of education as well.”

She said that they decided to create the scholarship “because of our love for Hinds Community College and the difference this institution has made.”

Puckett High School Principal Robert Crain, who attended the recognition ceremony, is also a Puckett native.

“Growing up in Puckett I had heard all about the accomplishments of Dr. Tommy Burnham.  Knowing his background makes this scholarship all the more rewarding,” Crain said. “This scholarship will assure us that a Puckett High School graduate will have the opportunity to further their education.”

CN renews commitment for transportation-related scholarships at Hinds CC

CN, at its November Donations & Sponsorships Committee meeting, approved a donation of $100,000 over two years for the CN Scholarship program at Hinds Community College.  Steve Browning, representing CN, presented CN’s check for $50,000 to Betty Carraway, Hinds Community College Foundation coordinator. Also present were Dr. Joyce Jenkins, left, dean of Career and Technical Education on the Raymond Campus and assistant district director for Occupational Programs, and Dr. Chad Stocks, right,  associate vice president for workforce training and associate dean for career and technical education on the Raymond Campus.

With a new two-year commitment for $100,000, CN is expanding opportunities for students enrolled in many Hinds Community College career and technical programs. Hinds received the first $50,000 installment in December 2015 from CN’s Community Investment Program, CN Stronger Communities Fund.

Beginning as a business focused primarily in Canada, CN is now a full-fledged North American railway – serving customers across North America and beyond and creating value for shareholders everywhere. CN offers integrated transportation services including rail, intermodal, trucking, freight forwarding, warehousing and distribution.

“CN began providing scholarships in 2003 with an initial gift of $25,000,” said Betty Carraway, Hinds Community College Foundation coordinator. “Hundreds of students have benefited from CN’s support. Some had tried academic classes after graduating from high school but had little success. These students have all done well in the career- technical programs. Many CN Scholarship recipients have been the first in their family to attend college.”

CN Scholarships ranging from $500 to $2,400 per year are awarded through the Hinds Community College Foundation to students in certain career-technical programs of study, including Automotive Machinist, Diesel Equipment Technology, Welding and Cutting Technology, Electrical Technology, Electronics Technology and Machine Tool Technology.

“The CN scholarship is vital to students at Hinds because it affords them an opportunity to attend college and a chance of getting a job. This partnership has been great for Hinds and CN,” said Dr. Joyce Jenkins, dean of Career and Technical Education on the Raymond Campus and assistant district director for Occupational Programs.

CN is committed to helping build safer, stronger communities. Their rail lines and facilities, employees, retirees, customers and suppliers are important parts of the fabric of life in hundreds of communities across North America.

Dr. Chad Stocks, associate vice president for workforce training and associate dean for career and technical education on the Raymond Campus, said he has seen first-hand the impact the scholarships have had on students. “CN scholarships have provided students the opportunity to study and learn valuable skills that will allow them to work in the transportation sector,” he said.

Hinds CC instructors endow new family scholarship

The Hinds Community College Foundation recognized its 2014-2015 scholarship recipients, donors and honorees at a scholarship reception Oct. 3. Among those recognized was recipient David Wilson of Florence, center, who received the Dr. Ben and Beverly Fatherree Scholarship. With him are Dr. Ben Fatherree, left, and Beverly Fatherree, both of Clinton. The Hinds Community College Foundation awarded more than 600 scholarships in the 2014-2015 academic year.

web_BeverlyandBenFatherree1

Dr. Ben H. and Beverly Derden Fatherree of Clinton have a long and rewarding relationship with Hinds Community College.

Both already had family scholarships established. Ben Fatherree’s family currently sponsors the T.B. and A.P. Fatherree Scholarship, and Beverly Fatherree’s family sponsors the Bill Derden Memorial Scholarship.

Because of their commitment to Hinds Community College, they want to continue that tradition with the Dr. Ben H. and Beverly D. Fatherree Endowed Scholarship.

“I want to give something back. And I see the possibility to help a student achieve their goals,” Ben Fatherree said. “I really love Hinds. I want it to be the best in everything it does. If I can contribute a small amount to that mission then I’m very happy and proud to do so.”

Beverly Fatherree has taught at Hinds for more than 30 years and is currently the District Curriculum Coordinator for the English and Modern Foreign Language departments and the academic liaison for Dual Enrollment classes.

“Providing a scholarship is a way for us to give back to Hinds and to show our faith in and commitment to the work that our students, our colleagues and our administrators do every single day,” she said.

Beverly Fatherree’s brother and sister also attended Hinds, as did her mother, as a nontraditional student.

In addition, her sister taught math at Hinds for 26 years, and her mother taught English at the Vicksburg-Warren Campus as a full-time/part-time instructor for 17 years.

“I have an additional connection to the school that served as the foundation for the rest of my college education,” she said.

Ben Fatherree, who holds a bachelor’s, master’s and doctorate, all in history, from Mississippi State University, has worked at Hinds since 1970 when he was 23, eight years before Hinds President Dr. Clyde Muse became president.

Fatherree said it was never his intention to work at Hinds his entire career. “I’ve spent essentially my whole adult life at Hinds. So I must like it,” he said. “I can’t imagine life without my colleagues at Hinds.”

In 2001 he retired as chair of the Department of History, Political Science, Philosophy and Religion on the Raymond Campus. Since his retirement, he has continued to teach as an adjunct instructor and work as Hinds’ Institutional Historian, writing a full-length history of the college.

Unlike her husband, Beverly Fatherree determined early that she wanted to teach at Hinds — permanently.

“When (former Vice President) Dr. Mike Rabalais asked me as part of my interview where I wanted to be in five years, I answered immediately ‘right here.’ And I’ve never regretted that answer.”

Criteria for the Dr. Ben H. and Beverly D. Fatherree Endowed Scholarship include the following preferences:

• A nontraditional Hinds Community College student enrolled in classes on the Raymond Campus

• A student majoring in history or English

• A student considering teaching as a career, especially at the community college level.

In order to be considered for this scholarship, students must apply by March 1 to the Hinds Community College Foundation. For more information, see the Hinds website at http://www.hindscc.edu/future_students/scholarships/default.aspx

Hinds Community College Foundation Scholarships are awarded on the basis of a student’s desire for achievement, involvement in extracurricular activities, financial need, grades and letters of recommendation.

Endowed scholarships may be established with a minimum gift of $15,000 donated to the Hinds Community College Foundation. The gift will constitute the initial principal for the endowment. The principal will be maintained and only the income earned will be awarded in the form of scholarships.

Non-endowed scholarships may be established with a minimum gift of $500. All gifts of cash and/or stocks are fully tax deductible.

Tom Kendall, Hinds Leader

Tom Kendall

For Tom Kendall (1985), the new president of the Hinds Community College Foundation board, serving Hinds Community College is more than an opportunity to help the college serve a purpose – it’s a family legacy.

Growing up on a farm in Bolton, Kendall realized the importance of a place like Hinds at an early age.

“My family saw first-hand the importance of Hinds in our community and in our county,” he said. “It is an honor to be continuing my family’s legacy with Hinds.”

The family has a long history of supporting the college by serving in positions of responsibility.

Kendall’s great-grandfather, F.M. Greaves, served as the second-ever Board of Trustees president from 1944-1968, and Kendall’s own father, Ted Kendall III, is also a past Board of Trustees president, serving from 1977-1988.

Both Tom Kendall and his brother, Ted Kendall IV (1979), attended classes at Hinds. Tom Kendall went on to pursue his degrees from Mississippi State University.

The Kendall family sponsors the F.M. Greaves Scholarship and the Gaddis and McLaurin Scholarship. Ted Kendall Agriculture Complex is named after Ted Kendall III and Greaves Residence Hall is named after F.M. Greaves.
