Students named to the First Team received $1,000 scholarships. First and Second Team members receive special medallions, certificates and printed resolutions from each chamber of the Mississippi Legislature.

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.

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.

Hinds CC Scholarship endowed in honor of late Vicksburg businessman

The late David L. May of Vicksburg drew on his skills in finance to help guide the Vicksburg-Warren Campus. His widow, Martha Ann May Klaus, has endowed a scholarship in his name to continue his legacy of involvement in education, especially at Hinds Community College.web_David May

May was a member of the Hinds Community College Foundation Board of Directors and was chairman of the advisory board for the Vocational/Technical Center on what is now the Vicksburg-Warren Campus. He also served on the board for Warren County Schools.

“He was involved in every level, and he was always available for advice on financial matters,” said Joe Loviza, director and dean of the Vicksburg-Warren Campus from 1973-93.

As a businessman, he founded May & Company, a certified public accounting firm. His businesses also included his marine towing business, real estate development and other enterprises. May, who died in 1995, grew up in Mobile and graduated from the University of Alabama. He was married to Martha Ann Johnston for 42 years until his death.

Magee, who lived in Mendenhall, was circuit clerk in Simpson County from 1984 until he retired in 2004. Magee died on Nov. 9, 2010, at age 67.

“I met Wiley at Hinds and developed a lifelong friendship,” said longtime friend Woody May. “Wiley remains one of the most positive people I ever met. He was a living example that life is not about your problems or your obstacles, but how you react to them.”

William Wiley Magee was born in a one-room shack across the road from where he raised his family in Mendenhall. His family, including four siblings and parents Bill and Lucia Magee, raised horses, cattle and various other livestock in Simpson County. He graduated from Mendenhall High School in 1961.

At Hinds Community College, he was involved in many campus activities before graduating in 1964. He also attended the University of Southern Mississippi and the Mississippi College School of Law.

He served as Director of Mississippi Department of Public Welfare in Simpson County and was later elected to five consecutive terms as circuit clerk of Simpson County. During his years in office, Magee modernized the Circuit Clerk’s office by digitizing the voter rolls and court documents. He also was an active member of the Mississippi Circuit Clerks’ Association and helped train newly elected clerks.

He and his wife Elizabeth raised two children, Lucy Magee Roark, an alumna of Hinds Community College and Robert Magee, an alumnus of USM and William Carey University.web_Magee Photo

One of the highlights of his life was coaching Dixie Youth baseball. He thought of his players as his own children and would spend many hours not only teaching them the game of baseball but also instilling in them the values and morals that would make them successful members of society.

He was an active member of First Baptist Church Mendenhall, serving as deacon, Sunday school teacher, singing in the choir, and serving on numerous committees until his death.

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. Eligible recipients must also be a Mississippi resident. For more information about the ACT scholarship, please visit www.hindscc.edu/financialaid.
