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.
In August 2016, Hinds Community College was introduced to a new English instructor. Wilson L. Knight began his Hinds career a year ago during the school’s fall semester. A native of Mantachie in Itawamba County in north Mississippi, Knight attended Mantachie High School and took part in many academic teams and clubs.
In Hinds Community College’s counseling office, there is a certain test administrator who has taken on a lot of responsibility. He’s an instructor, test administrator, counselor and, just as important, a mentor. Douglas Cole Berry may be the go-to guy when it comes to course planning. At the same time, however, he’s no stranger to mixing it up in his classroom.
This is the first in a series of instructor profiles.
The Lendon Players here at Hinds Community College are known as a group of theatre major students looking to perfect their craft. With every great play, comes a great cast.

In August 2017, Hinds Community College’s Raymond Campus was introduced to a new math instructor. Melanie Wells made her Hinds debut at the start of the 2016-2017 academic session. Although she is relatively new to Hinds’ students, she’s made an immediate impact on both her colleagues and her students.
Jason Stewart is a history instructor at the Raymond Campus of Hinds Community College. Having spent more than several years at the institution, he has become several students’ trusted first choice when students are planning out their semester schedules.
