Hinds CC caps off yearlong Centennial celebration with gala, festive entertainment

PEARL – A festive night of entertainment and fond memories Nov. 4 helped culminate the yearlong celebration of Hinds Community College’s Centennial.

Hosted by Gov. and Mrs. Phil Bryant, the event at the Muse Center on the Rankin Campus showcased the best of the college’s talent and featured video clips of its evolution during its 100 Years of Community-Inspired Service.

Bryant, a 1975 Hinds graduate, shared his story of being a student at Hinds and being the first of his family to attend college, which he noted as a continuing part of the college’s mission for its students.

“We have the opportunity to help each and every one of them go to college,” he said. “What a remarkable opportunity it was for me in the 1970s. I owe Hinds so much that it’ll never be able to be returned. We cannot overemphasize how important this great community college has been to the state of Mississippi. Our graduates go all over the world. We find ourselves in remarkable places.”

Part of that story involved his meeting his wife, Deborah, on the Raymond Campus.

“While I was there, not only did I get a remarkable education, but I found a soulmate,” Bryant said, just before Deborah Bryant appeared on stage being serenaded by the Utica Campus Jubilee Singers with a rendition of “My Girl.”

Later, guests were treated to rousing performances by several student groups including the Hinds Hi-Steppers and the Hinds Jazz Band. A group of alumni performers sang the original composition “Dear Hinds,” composed especially for the Centennial by Hinds music instructor Tracy Crosby. The Montage Theatre of Dance performed a homage to popular songs and dances titled “Dancing through the Decades.”

The reception honored the achievements of the six presidents in the college’s 100 years of service, special emphasis on President George McLendon, President Dr. Robert Murrah Mayo and current President Dr. Clyde Muse, who is in his 40th year.

“The person who’s led this college for 40 years is probably the greatest that I’ve been around in my life,” said Larry Swales, president of the Hinds Community College Alumni Association and chancery clerk in Rankin County. “He gets the job done.”

During the program, Swales read a letter recognizing the college’s Centennial from U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran, whose parents met at Hinds and for whom Cain-Cochran Hall on the Raymond Campus is partially named.

Representing the student body during the program was Drew Shaw, a fourth-generation Hinds student attending the Raymond Campus.

“To say Hinds is a tradition in my family is an understatement,” Shaw said. “Not only have we all been students, but we have taken full advantage of all the opportunities that Hinds had to offer.”

Dr. Muse reflected on his own experiences as a community college student, at East Central Mississippi Community College, and on his 40 years leading Hinds. He thanked Jackie Granberry, executive director of the Hinds Community College Foundation – hired during Muse’s first year as president – for organizing a year’s worth of special events including the gala.

“I’ve enjoyed the last 40 years of being able to help individuals get an education and help them set some life goals and other things so important to people,” Muse said. “The Bible says if you want to be the greatest, be a servant. Hinds Community College offered me that opportunity to do this for about 40 years, and I thank you.”

A silent auction before the program included several custom-made and handcrafted items, a Chef’s Dinner for eight, a custom Christmas card design, a child’s playhouse, a fire pit, deer feeders and barbecue grills.

Invited guests included alumni, business partners, community leaders, employees and friends of the college. Proceeds from ticket sales went toward starting a Centennial Endowment for future needs of the college, including student scholarships.

Endowed scholarship honors retired Hinds CC instructors, sisters

 

The Hinds Community College Foundation recognized its 2014-2015 scholarship recipients, donors and honorees at a scholarship reception Oct. 4. Among those recognized was recipient Bracken Carroll of Terry, center, who received the Jerry Agent and Mary Etta Naftel Scholarship. With her is Jerry Agent of Raymond, left, and Mary Etta Naftel of Raymond, right.

The Hinds Community College Foundation recognized its 2014-2015 scholarship recipients, donors and honorees at a scholarship reception Oct. 4. Among those recognized was recipient Bracken Carroll of Terry, center, who received the Jerry Agent and Mary Etta Naftel Scholarship. With her are Jerry Agent of Raymond, left, and Mary Etta Naftel of Raymond, right.

The Jerry Agent and Mary Etta Naftel Academic Endowed Scholarship for Hinds Community College students was established recently by the two sisters who grew up in Raymond and graduated from Hinds.

A bequest from Mrs. Charles C. (Helen H.) Jones of Raymond was used to fund the scholarship in the names of Agent and Naftel, who are her nieces.

Charles and Helen Jones had also established the Charles C. Jones Technical Scholarship. Jones worked at Hinds as a Distributing and Marketing Technology instructor from 1969 until he retired in 1990.

“My uncle Charles Jones and I both taught in the technical division and my sister Jerry Agent taught in the academic division of Hinds, all three of us on the Raymond

Campus,” said Naftel, who was chair of the Business Technology Department at Hinds.

“With these two family scholarships, we are pleased to have the opportunity to support both technical and academic students.”

“Obviously, Hinds has always been very important to our family. In addition to our teaching here, our mother also worked in the business office. Prior to that, our whole family went to school here,” Agent said.

Agent and Naftel said they hope the recipients of this scholarship will be successful in achieving their educational goals.

“We like to think that this scholarship will help other students find what we found at Hinds as students: helpful, knowledgeable, supportive faculty and staff who encouraged us to learn both in and out of the classroom,” Agent said.

Both sisters enjoyed serving Hinds as teachers and department chairpersons for more than 30 years, retiring in 2005. Both of them received recognition as Outstanding Instructor, Distinguished Instructor and Life Star recipient, 3E Award (Emphasis on Excellence and Enrichment) and Professor Emeritus. They were also honored in the state Legislature’s HEADWAE (Higher Education Appreciation Day, Working for Academic Excellence) instructor recognition program.

Jerry Peyton Agent graduated from the University of Southern Mississippi, earned a master’s degree at Mississippi College and took additional coursework in education at the University of Mississippi. She served as chair of the Speech and Theatre Department at Hinds.

She was named to Who’s Who Among America’s Teachers, was the Phi Theta Kappa Faculty Award recipient and was the dedicatee for the Mississippi and the Arts Week.

She was a member of the Mississippi Communication Association for 33 years serving as president and executive secretary.

Dr. Mary Etta Peyton Naftel graduated from the University of Southern Mississippi, earned a master’s at Mississippi College and earned a doctorate at the University of Mississippi.

Naftel was named the Mississippi Business Education Association (MBEA) Outstanding Business Educator, the Southern Business Education Association (SBEA) Postsecondary Teacher of the Year and the National Business Education Association (NBEA) Postsecondary Teacher of the Year.

She also received the SBEA Outstanding Leadership Award. She was a member of MBEA, SBEA and NBEA for 34 years serving as president of the state and regional associations and serving on the national executive board.

 •

The Jerry Agent and Mary Etta Naftel Academic Endowed Scholarship will be awarded to students who are full-time Hinds Community College students. To be considered, students must apply by March 1 to the Hinds Community College Foundation.

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.

Alum leaves Hinds CC Foundation with largest single bequest of $2m

 

Elizabeth Lloyd Schales

Elizabeth Lloyd Schales

Hinds Community College alumna Elizabeth Lloyd Schales (1943) wasn’t well known when she was a student in 1942 and 1943, nor is she known to current students.

But the name of this highly intelligent and somewhat eccentric Rankin County native will likely be well known to many Hinds students in the future because of what she did for them.  Schales made a bequest of about $2 million to Hinds Community College — the largest single gift to the Hinds Community College Foundation since its inception in 1978.

The gift will be used to directly help students, mostly for student scholarships, said Betty Carraway, coordinator for Special Projects/Donor Relations.

When Schales died in November 2012 at the age of 89, she left the college an estate of about $2 million, which will create the Elizabeth Lloyd Schales Endowment for Excellence aimed at higher achieving students.

“She really wanted to reward students who demonstrate academic achievement and promise,” Carraway recalled.

Elizabeth Lloyd was a Hinds Junior College student in 1942 and 1943, finishing her degree at Millsaps College.

She met her husband, Dr. Otto Schales while working as a chemist in New Orleans.

In 1944, he was hired as director of the first research laboratory at the Oschner Clinic. He also worked with the Department of Biochemistry at Tulane University School of Medicine in New Orleans and was a founding member of the Journal of Clinical Chemistry.

The Schales family then moved to Ohio, where he was responsible for the chemistry lab at Elyria Memorial Hospital.  After he retired, they moved to Columbus, Ohio, where he died in October 1988. Otto and Elizabeth Schales had no children but did a lot of traveling.

Elizabeth Schales renewed her relationship with Hinds in 1996 with a $10 gift to the Hinds Community College Foundation.

After Hinds’ landmark Cain Hall burned in 1998, the Foundation mounted a capital campaign to rebuild. No one at Hinds really knew Elizabeth Schales but because of the $10 donation her name and address were in the database.

One day Schales called the phone number on the Hinds capital campaign materials she had received, getting Carraway on the line.

“We just began to talk, and she started to cry, talking about Hinds. It was those memories and good friends she had had here,” Carraway said. “We talked about Cain Hall, and apparently it was such a strong memory she sent $1,000, then $10,000, then another $10,000.”

Over a three-year period, Schales gave $31,000 to the campaign to build Cain-Cochran Hall, which was officially dedicated in November 2002.

Carraway and Schales maintained a relationship over the years. Carraway visited her twice in Ohio during travel for other reasons and spent the night at her house. She was well read, keeping up with world events and the news. Carraway said.

Then in 2000 Schales sent a copy of her will to the college, showing that she intended to leave her estate to Hinds. “We didn’t know if she had a lot of money or not,” Carraway said.

Schales established her scholarship in 2001 with a $15,000 endowment for Hinds students who demonstrate academic achievement and promise with a preference for those interested in science.

In 2003, she moved back to the Jackson area where she had a sister. “We continued to visit more frequently,” Carraway said. “She was very sweet. She was extremely intelligent.”

After Schales death in 2012, the college learned just how much she planned to give the college — about $2 million. “A significant number of scholarships will be awarded in the coming year from this fund,” Carraway said.
