Understanding that cultural enrichment is nothing more than experiencing the practices and/or traditions of another culture with the common goal of promoting diversity, taking a trip to the New Orleans Cooking School allowed students at Hinds Community College's Utica Campus to do just that!
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.
Each year the Utica Campus of Hinds CC recognizes individuals who excel and/or show tremendous advancements in their academic careers. This year, students were honored at the Vice President's and Deans' Scholars Breakfast held Sept. 6 and the Academic Achievement Reception held Sept. 7. Both ceremonies are intended to shed light on student success as well as inspire others to grow academically. Below are photos from the events.
Recently, Student Support Services on Hinds Community College's Utica Campus had the opportunity to experience the Zip‘N Fun Park in Gulfport as part another meaningful cultural experience. This trip afforded our students the opportunity to engage in a challenging activity while supporting each other — something that is not always afforded to our students.
We all have strengths and weaknesses in life. We learn about them in school and have them measured in gory detail on report cards and such.
“It’s a lot to handle. Not a lot of people can do this at one time, juggle everything. So, being able to do all this and showing them, you know, that if you have your mind set on something you can always do it.”
Like so many other people, I found myself caught in the buzz of the Montage Theatre of Dance's new production: 7 A Tale of Sin and Virtue. I literally saw posters hanging everywhere from the walls of Harris-Patrick to the main doors to the cafeteria. I have never attended a Montage dance performance before...or really any huge dance performance. So, I decided I wanted to experience something new and throw myself into the campus life a bit.
