Charity Lockridge was recently crowned as Miss Hinds Community College and will represent the college in the Miss Mississippi Pageant this summer. As a photographer in the Public Relations department, I covered the pageant and was blown away by her performance in the talent portion of the competition. I believe she will do a wonderful job representing the college this year. I had the privilege of sitting down with Charity to have a conversation about her goals, platform and passions. Below is a portion of our conversation. The photos are from the pageant, held Nov. 16, 2017.
The President’s Christmas Reception is something that I have photographed for 25 years. But over the last 10 or so our department (Public Relations), along with Community Relations, has put together a pretty fantastic, and always interesting, “Santa Photos” section!
It was a lot of fun but it is OVER!
That goes not just for what Jackie Granberry calls the “C” word – Centennial – but also the Nov. 4 Centennial Gala.
Hinds Community College spent 2017 celebrating “100 Years of Community Inspired Service,” wrapping it up with a Gala attended by more than 450 people. The proceeds all go toward a Centennial Endowment that will be used for student scholarships, faculty development and other future needs of the college.
In July 2016 I blogged about the Hinds Community College athletic teams and how they historically and continually reach the highest levels of competition in my post HINDS ATHLETES COMPETE AT NATIONAL LEVELS (Click to read previous blog for reference). This article is an update to that post, focusing on championships within the last year or so. Click hot links in maroon text to see more information on that item.
Just recently in the spring 2017 semester, it was announced that I along with many others made the Deans’ List. Statistically, it was my best semester to date here at Hinds Community College, culminating with a 3.6 GPA.
Honestly, achieving this feat didn’t come without its peaks and valleys. For example, although I’m a huge fan of sleep, there were many nights where an all-nighter seemed like the only option for a good grade. There are a lot of ways to become a scholar, but 10 ways stand out significantly. So, here are 10 ways to become a President’s or Deans’ Scholar.
Hello from Hinds, Utica Campus! On Oct. 27, I had the opportunity to take 22 students from the Utica Campus to visit the Nissan Canton Assembly Plant located in Canton. The Canton Plant makes more than 400 vehicles daily and each vehicle is test driven.
In the first two seasons as head women’s basketball coach at Hinds Community College's Utica Campus, Tomekia Reed has made a tremendous impact on the women’s basketball program. In the prior eight years before Reed, the women’s basketball program had only won four total games. In Reed’s first two seasons, she has already accumulated 31 wins including 21 wins last season and led Hinds to its first ever appearance in the regional championship in 2017. Below is inside look into Tomekia Reed and her up-and-coming program.
