Classes begin at Hinds CC among heady plans for fresh faces, older students

RAYMOND – A professional life of working in heavy industry ended not long ago for Alonzo Hargrove, thanks to the wear and tear on his body.

Thanks to Hinds Community College, however, he’s drafting a new career.

“I worked in maintenance and did welding for 30 years, so I still enjoying doing things with my hands,” Hargrove said as he began his studies in the Drafting and Design Technology program. “I did the same while I was in the Army as well.”

The Lena, Miss. native and Jackson resident was among students who on Monday attended the first day of classes for the fall 2017 semester at the college’s six locations. Late registration ends Friday Aug. 18. Registration for online classes ends Sunday Aug. 20.

Maricka Edwards, also of Jackson, plans to continue her family’s tradition of caregiving. In her case, it’ll be in healthcare.

“I’ve always loved helping people,” Edwards said. “My family owns a daycare in Jackson, so I’m coming to school to be the first nurse in the family.”

Following in a caregiver’s footsteps is also on Carlos Collins’ mind.

“My mom has worked in nursing for 11 years now,” said Collins, of Yazoo City, who is taking core academic courses and prerequisite classes, on his way to a nursing degree. “She works at a nursing home, and I’d help her out after school.”

Evening classes at Hinds CC help students plan new careers

RAYMOND – Some students at Hinds have gained more than just an hour of sleep this past week. Quite possibly, they’ve progressed toward new careers by taking evening classes to juggle day jobs and family life.

“It gives me flexibility with my job and my children,” said Gwendolyn Russell, 43, a Jackson mother of four who works at the Nissan plant in Canton by day and studies toward her associate’s degree by night at the Rankin Campus.

“The support system here is great,” said Russell, who plans to pursue a nursing degree down the road. “There are tutors here who will sit down with you one-on-one who’ll get you what you need. They help you understand your work.”

Registration for the spring 2017 semester is now open for current and prospective students at Hinds Community College. On-campus classes for 16-week sessions and the first eight-weeks begin Jan. 9 with second eight-week classes, both on-campus and online, to begin March 6. Sixteen-week and first eight-week online classes begin Jan. 17.

 

A class schedule after 5 p.m. has worked out nicely for Allen Garrison, of Vicksburg, as he plots a career behind the welder’s shield.

“The benefit is that my wife also works days like me and can be with our daughter at night without a babysitter,” said Garrison, who earned a career certificate through the welding program at the Vicksburg-Warren Campus and is working toward an Associate of Applied Science degree.

Students pursuing careers in medical-related fields also see benefits by having classes at night.

“It offers a longer break in the day, with all the classes I take,” said Richard Neal, a Utica Campus student taking pre-pharmacy courses. Fellow STEM student Caitlyn Richmond, an aspiring Veterinary Technology student currently taking core science classes, also sees benefits to taking classes in the evening.

“It can be a better environment at night for learning,” Richmond said.

 

To register for classes for any term, students must first be admitted to the college. After meeting with a counselor, new students can then register for classes. Offices are open 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and until 6 p.m. on Tuesdays. The Admissions office can be reached at 601.857.3212 or by visiting the Admissions tab on the Hinds website at www.hindscc.edu.

During Terrific Tuesdays, each campus will offer extended registration hours, popcorn, drinks and a free t-shirt to all who register for classes.
