Scholarship helps fourth-generation Hinds CC student score goals on field, classroom

Scholarship helps fourth-generation Hinds CC student score goals on field, classroom

RAYMOND – As one of the younger members of a “Hinds family,” Drew Shaw understands how unique the bond is between Hinds Community College and its students.

“Growing up, I always knew what the Hinds family was,” Shaw said. “My dad, my mom and my grandparents came to Hinds. I was always involved. We played the Golf Fun Fest every year.”

Drew Shaw

Shaw is a fourth-generation Hinds student, following behind his father, Russell, who is the college’s vice president for Business Services, his mother, Kathy Spann Shaw, a pharmacist, grandfather, Stuart Spann, a longtime computer science instructor, and great-grandmother, L.C. Spann, who was women’s basketball coach. The Central Hinds Academy alumnus and current defender on the Hinds Eagle men’s soccer team often finds himself being a gracious tour guide to fellow students on campus.

Shaw is attending Hinds on the Elizabeth Lloyd Schales Endowment for Excellence, which rewards high-achieving students. In his case, his aptitude rewarded by the scholarship is being used to follow in his mother’s career in pharmacy.

“My mom being a pharmacist started me down the path of wanting to pursue it,” Shaw said. “I love math, chemistry and physics, anything involved like that.

“Being on scholarship has made it easier about not having to worry about the financial situation while I balance school and soccer. Managing time can be pretty difficult during midterms, for example. I’ve spent many late nights studying up for them.”

He’s played soccer in some form since age four and is enjoying to the fullest his chance to begin his college education right in his own backyard. The same goes for his on-campus activities, as he’s a member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and the Baptist Student Union.

The Hinds Community College Foundation awarded more than 600 scholarships in the 2017-18 academic year. The deadline to apply for a scholarship is Feb. 15, 2018. For more information, visit www.hindscc.edu.

Volunteer’s generous heart shaped at Hinds CC

RAYMOND – What began as a random tagalong trip with friends to the island nation of Jamaica has turned into a calling for Kathy Farris, of Raymond.

“It affected me in such a way that I knew I wanted to do something else with my life like that,” Farris said. “I had never done volunteer work before.”

Kathy Farris, background, of Raymond, and some of the children in Jamaica with whom she has worked as part of Great Shape! Inc. since 2012 (Hinds Community College/Submitted by Kathy Farris)

Since 2012, Farris, a technical assistant at the McLendon Library at Hinds Community College’s Raymond Campus, has volunteered at least a few weeks a year with children and educators in Jamaica to make lives better in every way possible – whether that’s team-teaching computer skills or helping get eyeglasses and shoes to those most in need.

She’s done so as part of Great Shape! Inc., an Oregon-based nonprofit founded after Hurricane Gilbert ravaged the island nation in 1988. An effort then to rebuild schools and roads there evolved into an ongoing mission to help students get everything they need to thrive in school. In the past decade, it’s grown to establish computer labs to aid education, sponsor the purchase of mandatory uniforms for Jamaican children and provided expertise in dental and eye care for schoolchildren. The organization says only 43 percent of Jamaica’s population of 2.8 million has ever seen or been treated for eye health issues, while the literacy rate in rural parts of the island is just 40 percent.

Farris has done a majority of her work while staying in hotels owned by Sandals Resorts, which sponsors reading efforts in the country’s schools.

“Just being in the schools with the children is amazing, because they’re such loving children and you get so much more out the project by being there,” she said. “One little 12-year-old girl came in who had no idea her eyesight was bad, and they fitted her with glasses. She cried, her mom cried. It was a touching story. It makes me tear up because I’m so vested there. There’s just so much we take for granted in the U.S.”

Her friends and co-workers have pitched in either supplies or their own elbow grease to Farris’ volunteer work.

“To say the least, it was the most humbling experience that I have had in my life,” said Leigh Mann, a friend of Farris’ whose curiosity turned to action for the past few trips. “I had run by to see her, and she pulled out her tablet to show me the videos and all the stories. I asked question after question, then just decided it was time for me to make a difference and be part of this journey.”

For Melanie John, among Farris’ five fellow technical assistants in the library, it was a chance to contribute to children who need the essentials for school. That list includes children’s books, backpacks and school supplies such as pencils, paper, notebooks, pencil sharpeners, glue sticks, stickers and markers.

“I thought it was such a wonderful way to give back to those who were lacking educational needs and also teaching resources for the teachers,” John said.

Farris credits her experience in the DECA program as a Hinds student, in the retail management area, for shaping her development later on helping people in the library and in her mission work. The organization recognizes student achievement in various fields of business administration, finance, marketing and hospitality.

“We placed nationally when I was coming to school here,” she said. “Nowadays, I enjoy helping students in the library and like seeing that light bulb come on when studying. It’s made me want to do more in the volunteering area.”

Hinds CC helps Farr dance her way to Mrs. Mississippi title

Hinds CC helps Farr dance her way to Mrs. Mississippi title

Note: The following story appears in the winter issue of Hindsight alumni magazine. For more information about the Hinds Alumni Association, see the website. To apply for a Hinds Community College Foundation scholarship, go to the Admissions tab on college web site at www.hindscc.edu or click here.

RAYMOND – Getting back into shape after her daughters were born meant dusting off the old tiara for Marisa Lepard Farr.

“I wanted to set a goal for myself to get back in shape, so I decided to go for it this past January,” Farr said of her decision to compete in the 2017 Mrs. Mississippi United States pageant in Tunica in June, as Mrs. Rankin County.

Marisa Lepard Farr

It was quite the splashy return to the stage for Farr, a Terry native who won this past year’s state title and took it to Orlando, where she competed for Mrs. United States a month later. Though the run ended there, the former Montage Theatre of Dance member at Hinds Community College looks forward to big things during her yearlong reign as the state’s top married beauty queen.

Her platform as this year’s title-holder stems from an experience she had while about a year ago driving along Highway 18 in Brandon. She came upon a terrible wreck scene that resulted in the deaths of two children, aged just three and five years old.

“They were not in proper car seats at all,” she said. “I have always believed in car seat safety for my own children, so seeing the wreck and the negative impact of not using proper car seats took it to a different level for me.”

Farr, who now lives in Flowood, is pursuing certification as a Child Passenger Safety Technician and plans to lobby state lawmakers to strengthen child seat safety laws.

It’ll be a chance to do what she’s done a fair amount of since her college days – teaching.

She was part of the first Montage Theatre of Dance troupe, started by current program director Tiffany Jefferson. After Hinds, she moved on to the University of Southern Mississippi, where she majored in Elementary Education. She taught middle school briefly and still teaches dance, at Northwest Rankin Middle School. Currently, she is a sales agent for Younique, a cosmetics maker. She and husband, Coleman, have two daughters, Sarah and Ava.

She had done Miss Teen Mississippi USA and competed in the Eagle Beauty Revue as a Hinds student. “After I got married, a friend suggested I do Mrs. Mississippi,” she said. “I didn’t know they had pageants for married women.”  She won first runner-up in a few of them before having her two daughters.

Jefferson choreographed a solo routine in one of those pageants.

“Marissa had a strong interest in dance and pageantry even while she was here at Hinds,” Jefferson said. “A course she studied with me was Jazz/Hip Hop, and during that time we studied the Bob Fosse style. She gravitated toward it with fondness and decided to do ‘All That Jazz’ for her talent.”

Her dancing feet led her to what is now the state’s community college system’s only full dance program.

“We had no dance class in high school, so when I came to Hinds I randomly signed up for a jazz dance class,” she said. “It happened to be Tiffany Jefferson’s very first dance class that eventually became Montage.”

“We did a few competitions that first year, and traveled to San Antonio and danced. She’s really taken off since then and helped get opportunities for her dancers.”

Hinds has a special place in her heart, as she and Coleman met while members of the Baptist Student Union and their career paths fell into place after some initial stress.

“It was a blessing to me at that time in life,” she said. “After high school, I had planned to go into fashion merchandising at another university in the state. But the program wasn’t there anymore once I went to apply. I didn’t know what I was going to do. Thankfully, I got a full scholarship to Hinds, which was helpful to my parents at the time. Hinds was like my little sanctuary, where everything fell into place with what I wanted to do with my life, which was to teach.

“My husband and I talk about it all the time, about how if just one thing been different, we’d have never known each other or had our beautiful children. We have Hinds and the BSU to thank for that.”

Hinds CC academic, technical graduates thrived upon return to school

PEARL – Justice Munn is a third-generation member of his family’s business, Munn Enterprises, but found himself at a crossroads just a year ago in his young, adult life.

His skills as a mechanic were being tested mightily by the evolving technology of today’s diesel engines. “You can’t even diagnose today’s engines without a computer,” Munn said.

“I’m a mechanic and I wanted to return to school for better pay and a chance to open my own shop,” said Munn, of Sumrall, as he prepared to earn career and technical certificates from Hinds Community College during graduation ceremonies held Dec. 15 at the Muse Center on the Rankin Campus.

Being in the Diesel Equipment Technology program helped him hone his skills and opened doors to earning further credentials down the road – all the while setting him up to earn more money now.

“I enjoyed it at Hinds,” he said. “I would do it again in a heartbeat.”

Hinds Community College graduated more than 1,000 students in the three ceremonies.

“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 and to contribute to the communities in which we live,” said Hinds president Dr. Clyde Muse in his address to graduates.

Student diplomas this year included a gold seal celebrating the college’s 100th anniversary.

Among the graduates, 129 achieved summa cum laude, a 4.0 grade point average; 74 achieved magna cum laude, a 3.6 to 3.99 GPA and 21 achieved cum laude, 3.2 to 3.59.

The spirit of achievement also reached Hinds faculty who returned to the classroom to build skills.

“In cosmetology, we have to market ourselves anyway,” said Lychanda Brown, of Raymond, an instructor of Cosmetology at the Utica Campus. Brown earned an Associate of Applied Science in marketing, as well as career and technical certificates.

For Jennifer Burnett, a custodian on the Utica Campus, it was a chance to get into computer programming, in which she earned a career certificate. “It was time to move on up,” Burnett said.

Speaking to academic and career and technical education graduates was Joy Rhoads, a history and geography instructor at the Rankin Campus and coordinator of the campus’ Honors Institute.

Rhoads told graduates to be open to all the challenges life might bring after graduation, using her own experience as a master’s student as an example.

“I realized, very quickly, that being Joy the student was a vastly different experience than being Ms. Rhoads the instructor,” Rhoads said. “Discerning how to effectively balance my family, my job, and my schoolwork was another challenge to an already challenging degree path. It truly was an epiphany – my light bulb moment – when I understood that all my students face many of these very things and more. So, when you are navigating what comes next, be open to being humbled.”

Hinds CC nursing, allied health graduates celebrate with family, friends

PEARL – Lakashia Robinson already had a servant’s heart, having earned a degree from Hinds Community College a few years ago, in surgical technology, and caring for patients at Merit Health River Oaks.

But, she wanted to take her life and career higher. As she pursued her Associate of Applied Science degree in nursing, Robinson, 26, of Jackson, felt it was imperative to share that heart with classmates and the community.

Lakashia Robinson

“Every year, we go out into the community and do one big event,” Robinson said. “As vice president of the Mississippi Organization of Associate Degree Nursing Student Association, I organized a group of students to participate in the benefit walk for breast cancer and we raised $1,900 – which is amazing since as students we don’t have to donate – but we did!”

As an OB-tech, her caregiving skills are tested daily.

“You don’t know caring for someone until you have a pregnant woman sitting there in tears and the only thing you can do to comfort her is say, ‘It’s going to be OK,’” she said.

Robinson will be a second-generation nurse once she completes her degree at the University of Mississippi Medical Center, as her mother is a nurse. Among her many sources of inspiration was the family and service-oriented atmosphere at Hinds.

“I didn’t want to just be a nursing student,” she said. “I wanted to be a nursing student who served the community. Our college embodies that very thing.”

Robinson was among more than 1,000 students who graduated in three ceremonies Dec. 15 at the Muse Center on the Rankin Campus, beginning with the nursing and allied health students at 8 a.m.

“The power of education is that it drives our vision for a better life.

Also among honors graduates was Derrick Williams, a classmate of Robinson’s who switched careers.

“I was driving a furniture truck for a living when my sister suggested I get into this,” Williams said before walking across the stage a cum laude graduate. “I gave it a shot and now I want to be a nurse practitioner working with mental health patients.”

Speaking to nursing and allied health graduates was Joy Rhoads, a history and geography instructor at the Rankin Campus and coordinator of the campus’ Honors Institute.

Rhoads told graduates to be open to all the challenges life might bring after graduation, using her own experience as a master’s student as an example.
