Hinds CC’s Vicksburg-Warren Campus opens disc golf course

The Vicksburg-Warren Campus of Hinds Community College celebrated the grand opening of a disc golf course Nov. 11.

The new addition to the campus was the brain child of several administrators and students. Rip Engler, assistant dean of the Vicksburg-Warren Campus, came up with the idea several years ago, but wasn’t able to find the resources needed to get it going. Recently, Marvin Moak, the new dean of the campus, Mark Stanton, district director of student activities, and Dr. Sarah Nichols, Phi Theta Kappa advisor, along with several PTK students, took the time and energy to make Engler’s idea a reality.

“I am excited about the disc golf course because it’s a successful completion of our PTK project, and also because it’s going to give me something to do between classes,” said student Tiffany Carroll of Vicksburg. “I usually go home between classes because there’s nothing going on. But now I’ll be challenged to learn something new and also have an opportunity to socialize with friends.”

The Vicksburg-Warren Campus’ disc golf course is only one of two courses in all of Vicksburg, and is the only public course. Anyone from the community is welcomed to use it. The course opens at dawn and closes at dusk.

“We hope this will bring more visitors to campus to see what the college has to offer,” said Stanton. “We plan to hold a disc golf intramural tournament here in the spring, as well.”

The multipurpose building at Hinds Community College’s Vicksburg-Warren Campus was named for the administrator who helped the campus become what it is today, beginning 40 years ago in 1974.

The Joseph L. Loviza Multipurpose Building was named on Sept. 30 after the former Vicksburg Campus dean and former mayor of Vicksburg.

“When the Hinds Community College Board of Trustees and the college decide to make a decision to name a building in honor of or memory of an individual, it is a decision made with deliberate thought,” said Robert Pickett of Vicksburg, president of the Hinds Community College Board of Trustees. “The leadership provided by Joe Loviza in creating a college branch, and later a comprehensive college campus here to serve the people of Vicksburg and Warren County, certainly fits the expectations of our board when honoring outstanding contributions.”

Hinds President Dr. Clyde Muse said the campus started out as a high school career and technical education program, which called for a change in state law to be allowed at a community college.

“It set the example for the future,” Muse said. “This campus continues to be one of the largest career-technical programs for high school students in the state. That kind of effort just doesn’t go and happen. It takes a lot of hard work on the part of this community as well as others. We have had, over the years, the kind of leadership that it takes to make a full comprehensive community college campus in Vicksburg.”

Loviza said the campus “is the best investment you’ll ever make because you’ll have an immediate return on your tax dollar,” he said. “It’s not just Joe Loviza. Although I’m glad for my name to be up there, I had a lot of help getting here.”

Loviza is a 1960 graduate of Hinds Community College and was the first employee of the Vicksburg-Warren Campus, serving for 20 years.

He began his career with the Vicksburg Warren School System as director of Vocational, Technical and Adult Education. When the college began providing secondary vo-tech training in 1973, Loviza was employed to serve as the director, and later, dean, of the center. The center expanded to offer post-secondary classes and in 2002 was officially named the Vicksburg-Warren Campus. 

Chad Shealy, superintendent of the Vicksburg Warren school district, said Loviza remains a staunch supporter of education. “He loves vocational training. He loves technical training. He believes in career technology. He believes in providing a workforce for this community,” he said.

Loviza served as mayor of the city of Vicksburg from 1993 to 1997. After his retirement, he continued to support the city by serving on numerous boards and committees, including the Vicksburg Warren School Board.

Hinds CC to rename buildings to recognize distinguished current, former employees

Hinds Community College will rename three buildings on the Utica and Vicksburg-Warren Campuses this fall in honor of three distinguished current and former college employees.

The Utica Campus will rename two buildings at 2 p.m. Thursday Sept. 25. The Fine Arts Building on the Utica Campus will be renamed the Dr. Bobby G. Cooper Fine Arts Center, after the chairman of the Humanities Division and coordinator of music and art. He is best known as the director of the renowned Jubilee Singers.

The building that housed the band for Hinds Agricultural High School on the Utica Campus will be renamed the Louis Edward Leon Lee Building after the former band instructor and director.

The Multi-Purpose Building at the Vicksburg-Warren Campus will be renamed the Joseph L. Loviza Building at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 30, after the former Vicksburg Campus dean and Hinds Community College Foundation member.

Dr. Bobby G. Cooper, a native of Bolton, has provided service and leadership to the Utica Campus and the Utica community for more than four decades. Best known as the director of the Jubilee Singers, Cooper is credited with re-establishing the preeminence of the historical African-American spiritual vocal group that traces its roots to the 1920s.

Among his many recognitions are the five-time Academic Instructor of the Year award, Distinguished Academic Instructor, Life Star Award, Hinds Hero, Hinds Humanities Teacher Award, the Distinguished Alumni Award, and the 3E Award (Emphasis on Excellence and Enrichment)—the highest award given by the college. He has also been honored by the Mississippi Legislature as an outstanding faculty member with the Higher Education Appreciation Day-Working for Academic Excellence Instructor (HEADWAE).

Louis Edward Leon Lee, a native of Hazlehurst, began his tenure at Utica Institute in 1953, immediately after receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in music at the Jackson College for Negro Teachers (now Jackson State University). He was a member of the Jackson College band and Omega Psi Phi Fraternity. His career spanned 39 years as the music teacher and band director at Hinds Agricultural High School. Other than a brief sabbatical to serve his country in the U.S. Army, Lee served Hinds Agricultural High School, the Utica Campus and the entire Utica community well until his retirement in 1992.

Joe Loviza is a 1960 graduate of Hinds Community College and was the first employee of the Vicksburg-Warren Campus, serving for 20 years. Loviza began his career with the Vicksburg Warren School System as Director of Vocational, Technical and Adult Education. When the college began providing secondary vo-tech training in 1973, Loviza was employed to serve as the director, and later, dean, of the center. The center expanded to offer post-secondary classes and in 2002 was officially named the Vicksburg-Warren Campus.

Loviza served as Mayor of the City of Vicksburg, 1993-97. After his retirement, he continued to support the city by serving on numerous boards and committees, including the Vicksburg Warren School District Board.  Loviza remains a loyal supporter of the college, working within the Alumni Association and as a contributor to the Hinds Community College Foundation.
