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.
Hinds Community College tailgating may not be the same as it is at a university, but we still know how to have a good time!
What happened to June, July and August? The summer months flew by for a number of us at Hinds Community College as we worked on materials for the continuation this fall of our Centennial celebration.
This is the first in a series of instructor profiles.
Depending on who you are, going back to school may either be a joyous occasion that you spend the entire summer anticipating, or the worst reality check one could ever receive. Buying school supplies, spending a fortune on books and attempting to wake up at a time before 3 p.m. are only a few of the many adjustments that must be made before someone is fully prepared to tackle the “back to school” life. And I, Ke’Londa Magee, a new freshman, am here to share my experience on adjusting to life at Hinds Community College.

Partners for 10 years, four championship and three runner-up championship titles and a bid for the 2014 College World Series national championship trophy together, Hinds head coach Sam Temple and his former assistant coach, Dan Rives, met up for their first ever dugout dual this past season in Moorhead on April 29, 2017. Now Head Coach Rives took the field commanding his own army of diamond warriors, this time against his former partner and institution.
I could have walked across the street and attended the 100 People Passionate about Hinds ceremony, but I was fortunately invited (i.e. urged) by my friend Marti Morgan and her husband Bob to go with them.
