Greetings from the Hinds Utica Campus! This past semester I had the opportunity to take 25 students to visit four-year colleges and universities with strong programs in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math).
A few weeks ago I wrote about my new goal of losing weight before my daughter’s October wedding.
Since the day I wrote that blog post, I lost 13 lbs. by watching what I eat, drinking lots of water and working out at the Hinds Wellness Complex.
But then everything stalled. I haven’t gained weight – but the weight loss stopped.
So, in desperation I signed up for a Monday-Wednesday-Friday Wellness Complex boot camp. I started on June 7, missed on June 9 but made it all three days this week.
Hinds Eagle baseball is synonymous with success, not only in Mississippi, but also on the national arena. Tied with Jones County Junior College (and two others outside Mississippi) as the other Mississippi college with eight total College World Series wins each on the National Junior College Athletic Association "total wins leaders" list, the Eagles are also tied with four other colleges at six total CWS appearances on the leaders list of 15 schools.
Just LSU-Eunice, the only other Region 23 college, has more CWS appearances than Hinds CC does, in our region (which includes Mississippi and Louisiana).

Over the past semester at Hinds Community College, Rick Melancon’s ENG 2133, Creative Writing I and Sarah Teasley’s ART 1513, Computer Art classes have joined forces to create a literary and visual arts publication. Students from each class brainstormed a list of titles that were compiled and voted on, and thus the first edition of Quill and Brush is born.
It was a time for music and drama this past spring at Hinds Community College.
"Playing under the lights for the first time in program history was undeniably a great start to the future of this program. Recruiting is the biggest part of any program and having lights helps when parents can come watch their kids play. Later games also keep the kids in the classroom to focus on their academics." - Mike Grzanich
