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
The Lendon Players here at Hinds Community College are known as a group of theatre major students looking to perfect their craft. With every great play, comes a great cast. For every great cast, comes an even better director. Alison Stafford has been that great director here at Hinds for the last few years.
Even after 29 years of raising funds for student scholarships and faculty, staff and student development, the Golf Fun Fest remains Hinds Community College's most successful fundraiser.
Caleb Morgan is a freshman pitcher from Grenada. Caleb came to Hinds in hopes of improving his game and growing into a big-time Division 1 prospect. The moment he stepped on campus the baseball coaching staff could tell that he would be special. He was determined to improve each and every day and every time the ball was put in his hand, he attacked hitters and imposed his upper 80s fastball on them. Early on in the season, Caleb was tabbed the responsibility of being a conference starter. Last week, Caleb took the mound vs. Meridian Community College and pitched a complete game shutout. He struck out 15 batters in the process and was named MACJC and NJCAA Pitcher of the Week.
