Beemon Hall is the location for everything science related here at Hinds Community College. Whether it is Principles or General, there are various science selections available to all students.
Although learning about all-things science related could be challenging, the instructors tend to make it a little fun. Einna Robinson is a Biology lab instructor here at Hinds, and she makes learning the complexity of life interesting.
A native of Columbus, it is only right that she is a Columbus High School alumni. “Columbus is a small town,” she said. “I come from a very tight-knit community.” After she graduated high school, Robinson headed to Nashville to Fisk University. “While at Fisk, I pledged Alpha Kappa Alpha (AKA) sorority,” she said. “Going there was the best decision I ever made. It taught me self-dependence, self-efficiency and self-reliance.”
Having a bit of a musical background, she is an experienced violin player. “Music was a hobby,” she said. “It was just something I was good at. I played in a symphony that would give me exposure to the music world.”
Passing on what could’ve been a promising career in music, she decided to seek employment in the field of education. “When I graduated from grad school, I applied at many places,” Robinson said. “One of those places was Hinds.”
Along with educating the students of Hinds, one of her top goals is to get students to see that a career in the field of science is prosperous. “Science is a great field to go into,” she said. “We can use more of our students in the science field. Especially in the areas of Science Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).”
A great friend and an even better instructor, if there is one thing students can take with them after her classes conclude is a piece of her caring spirit. “As an instructor, your success reflects on my success,” Robinson said. “I’m just getting started. I want people to know that I do care.”
