Partners for 10 years, four championship and three runner-up championship titles and a bid for the 2014 College World Series national championship trophy together, Hinds head coach Sam Temple and his former assistant coach, Dan Rives, met up for their first ever dugout dual this past season in Moorhead on April 29, 2017. Now Head Coach Rives took the field commanding his own army of diamond warriors, this time against his former partner and institution.
I could have walked across the street and attended the 100 People Passionate about Hinds ceremony, but I was fortunately invited (i.e. urged) by my friend Marti Morgan and her husband Bob to go with them.
I recently interviewed a Hinds student-athlete alumnus in hopes to get in-depth look of what it is like being both a student and an athlete at Hinds Community College. Ethan Daily graduated from Hinds this past May and is moving on to continue his education and baseball career as a left-handed pitcher at the University of Arkansas-Little Rock. Here’s what he had to say.
Summer at Hinds Community College Utica Campus features activities to keep incoming students as well as school aged youth engaged all summer long. Programs offered include STEM-UP/College Success Camp, Summer Prep 2017, Praxis Workshops, Summer Health Professions Institute and Sports Camp. The programs provide training and support in areas of Math, Reading, Writing, Arts and Recreation. Incoming students and community youth experienced life as college regulars, spending full days and even living at night, on campus. Below are a few pictures from our journey this summer!
For a lot of students at Hinds, summer is a time for jobs and capturing some time off from studies after the grueling fall and spring semesters. Granted, many take summer courses to chip away at earning a degree…but I fell into that first category during my school daze, so it’s a familiar enough angle to take.
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.
