Wow, I cannot believe that I am an official graduate of Hinds Community College. To this day, I still look back on the day in kindergarten when my teacher Mrs. Stewart asked me what I wanted to do when I grow up and my response was that I was going to graduate high school, go to Ole Miss and then medical school. As Hinds would end up being the first detour along the way to destination future, I am proud of my accomplishments up to this point. I encourage new Hinds students to be involved on campus and take advantage of all the opportunities offered.
Hinds Leadership and Business students took advantage of a ten day travel abroad opportunity to England. Students and faculty departed for England March 7 and returned March 17.
As a 24-year-old commuter student; living in Madison, MS and attending the Raymond Campus of Hinds Community College; the drive to class gives me ample time to think about the day ahead. On the 45-minute commute, both to and from school, I get hungry and I begin to think about good places to eat en route. The Jackson metro area is the culinary capitol of the state with thousands of varied options. Last week, during my search for gastronomical enlightenment, I saw a sign reading “Georgia Blue”, tucked away in the back of a shopping center. It’s a hole in the wall gastro-pub that holds true to the old south way of cooking while grasping a new way to present itself.
