Tests. Papers. Long hours at the library. Study Groups. Class. Lab. Class again…sigh. Work study job. Part time job. Family responsibilities. This is the life of today’s college student.

When you are a public relations professional, you learn very quickly how important it is to establish and maintain positive community partnerships. Building these lifelong bridges proves to be valuable and essential when it comes to enhancing community engagement in projects, increasing community awareness issues and establishing a framework for continued support. Partnerships represent the pinnacle of leadership and collaboration in civil society.
I’m the pitching coach/recruiting coordinator for the Eagles baseball team and have been the Sports Information Director for Hinds Community College since last summer. I thought I would use this space to tell you something about myself – and how a guy from the north got to Mississippi.
As I prepare for the 2018 version of the Camp Silver Eagle Challenge on July 17-21, I have been thinking about last summer’s version of the annual intergenerational summer enrichment program.
The Creative Learning 50+ Silver Eagles soared into the 2017-2018 program year last July with the camp that included 25 adults and children ranging in ages from 5-94. They enjoyed diversified programs that focused on conservation best practices for their backyards and the community as an extension of their backyard habitats.
Emergencies, by definition, leave little to no time to react. The increased threat of terrorism and naturally occurring disasters demonstrates the need for our college community to be prepared for any emergencies.
To help prepare the college community for all hazards, the Office of Emergency Management encourages everyone to – Be informed. Make a plan. Build a kit. Get involved. The OEM’s campaign expands the national Ready campaign to provide targeted information to support the unique needs of our college community.
