Five Hinds Community College students competed for the title of Miss Hinds Community College 2015 on Jan. 22. As the multimedia specialist for Hinds, I spent some time backstage with the five contestants - Anney Pearson, Courtney Helom, Kaylee Scroggins, Shaniva Thomas and Maggie Shoultz, who won the title – as they made their final preparations before going on stage.
