The second most exciting day at Hinds Community College — after my favorite event, graduation — is the first day of fall classes in August. We get a lot of fresh, eager — and lost — faces ready to start their educational careers. And it’s “all hands on deck” for the entire college. Everyone does whatever is necessary to help.
In some ways, Amanda McMillan of Pearl typifies the non-traditional Hinds Community College student. At age 43, she works full-time waiting tables at Table 100, is divorced and has three children. In her second semester on the Rankin Campus, she is also taking a full-time load of classes at 12 hours.
On Tuesday, October 2nd, Hinds Community College’s Rankin Campus hosted its annual iTechnology Show for Rankin County high school students at the Clyde Muse Center. The show featured several of Hinds CC’s academic and career/technical programs as well as local businesses. This was my first time going to the event and I was very excited to experience all the iTechnology show had to offered.
