As the director of Web Communications at Hinds Community College, I learn more about the career and technical programs we offer at Hinds all the time and sometimes (most of the time) I could kick myself for not starting my education at a community college. There are so many programs for anyone interested in a career in technology and I wanted to share a few that I think are really cool.
Multimedia Specialist Melanie Boyd visited the Hinds Rankin Career and Technical building to photograph the overnight welding class that is being offered. This program allows students with full-time jobs, families or other day obligations a chance to get a degree or certification in welding.
The overnight welding class lasts from 12 a.m. to 7 a.m. two nights a week. Instructor Delon Dillon Jr. teaches this class. He was taught welding by his father.
