About this year's theme: "Breaking New Ground" 

In 1917, Hinds Community College started in Raymond, Mississippi as Hinds County Agricultural High 
School with only three buildings and 177 students. In the decades that have followed, the college has made 
vast improvements including the expansion to three outside counties, the opening of five adjunct campuses 
and the addition of many state-of-the-art facilities. In the past year, the Rankin, Raymond, Utica and 
Jackson/ ATC campuses have been given the opportunity to take part in this improvement by "breaking new 

The new Vernon Clyde Muse Multi-Purpose Center, which had its grand opening March 25, 2011, is 
approximately 75,000-square-feet and houses a multi-function auditorium and conference center. The 
building also features state-of-the-art classrooms, offices and a full catering kitchen. The Muse Center sits on 
60 acres of the Rankin Campus in Pearl fronting Interstate-20, more than doubling the size of the campus. 

More than 500 community members and employees were on hand Aug. 26 for the official opening of D.G. 
"Sonny" Fountain Hall on the Raymond Campus. The building, which rests on the corner of Hinds 
Boulevard and Main Street, houses the office of the college president and the Board of Trustees meeting 
room as well as Institutional Advancement, Enrollment Services, Student Recruiting, Hinds Community 
College Foundation, Alumni Association, Business Services, Community Relations, Marketing and 
Grants/External Contracts. In addition, on the first floor of Fountain Hall is an Emeritus Room with office 
space and technologies included for the convenience of college retirees who receive the emeritus designation. 

More than 800 Hinds employees, public officials, community members and family attended the Dec. 2 
dedication of the Vashti Underwood Muse Band Hall on the Raymond Campus, named for the late Hinds 
first lady who died on July 9, 2010. The event was held as part of the annual Christmas reception. The new 
23,890 square-foot band hall opened for band members' use in April 2010. The building cost $5.5 million and 
was funded by the citizens of Hinds County through the board of supervisors. Robert Pickett, president of the 
Hinds Community College Board of Trustees, said trustees were pleased to name the building for her. "The 
legacy of Mrs. Muse is indeed etched in many areas of the college. Though she is missing from this place, she 
will continue to hold a fond and memorable space in the hearts of the many, including the members of the 
Hinds Community College Board of Trustees," he said. Mrs. Muse was a former high school majorette and an 
ardent support of the arts program at Hinds, including the band and the Hi-Steppers. 

The 51 -year old (1958) DWL Davis building on the Utica Campus underwent renovations and construction 
to reopen in the fall of 2010 as the Utica Campus Wellness Center. Like the Raymond Campus Wellness 
Center, the Utica center is open by membership to faculty, staff, students and the community. There is a 
reception area, a general exercise equipment area, a group activity/ttaining room, restrooms and lockers. The 
original building, at 23, 245 square-feet, held the campus music department, GED classes and vocational 
programs. With an additional 1,400 square-feet, it features, in addition to the wellness center, new offices, 
classrooms and labs. 

.■ '■■-. 

The new facility on the Jackson/ ATC campus, which is currently undergoing construction and has not yet 
been named, will accommodate several academic programs, mainly mathematics and science. There will be 
two state-of-the-art science labs dedicated to chemistry and biology. The remaining eight classrooms will have 
two completely computerized classrooms to facilitate the expanding math program and biology and chemistry 
lecture courses. Each classroom will be equipped with an instructor's computer station, wireless internet 
access, and audio/ visual capabilities. There will also be office space for several faculty members. 

With all of these additions, Hinds has made the next step in giving instructors advanced and contemporary 
classroom resources, providing its smrounding communities with opportunities and improving the quality of 
education for its students. Breaking new ground and constructing new buildings has created much more than 
extra space; it has enriched the lives of everyone involved with Hinds Community College. 

President's Message 

Student Life 





Clubs and Organizations 







&*r^A ttferif a 





Dear Hinds Community College students, 

It has been a privilege for me to serve as your president 
this year; 2010-201 1 has been a year of growth for Hinds 
Community College. We are consistently serving more 
students than we ever have before. Hinds recently ranked in 
the Top 50 Fastest-Growing Public Two-Year Colleges 
according to Community College Week. Moreover, our 
school is now the fourth largest public institution of higher 
learning in Mississippi. But our growth is not only seen in 
the number of students enrolled in classes. We have also 
added new facilities to our campuses in Raymond, Rankin 
and Utica, and we hope that these additions enhance your 
educational environment. 

Even before our record enrollment increases, our 
accessibility and affordability have traditionally been great 
draws for Hinds, and we continued to reach students for 
reasons such as these. While you have chosen Hinds for a 
variety of reasons, our hope is that through our growth we 
are still moving you closer to your ultimate goals — a 
college degree, a wider diversity of work skills or the certification needed to qualify for a better job and provide a better life 
for your families. I hope that the effort you have invested in your education at Hinds has been worthwhile and that you have 
been enriched by your experiences on our campuses. 

While students are increasingly enrolling in Hinds, we also hope that they will increasingly complete a degree here. This 
spring, we launched our graduation campaign to encourage you to persist in your studies and training until you achieve the 
degree in the program in which you are enrolled. We are becoming keenly aware of college completion rates and hope to 
retain more students from semester to semester than we have in the past, and you can assist us in this effort by 
determining a plan that would help you achieve your degree here at Hinds. 

Also, the past year has presented a challenge to me personally as I have served you for the first time without my wife, 
Vashti, by my side. Vashti and 1 served Hinds together for more than 30 years and spent more than 58 years together as 
husband and wife. Many of you are aware of how much I miss her, and you too have missed her presence here on campus. 

Yet Vashti would agree with me when I say that we at Hinds undertake the challenges of rapid growth and continually try to 
improve our quality of education for the benefit of you, the students. You are the reason we work, you are the reason we 
exist, and you are the reason we will continue growing. It has been a pleasure serving you this year as president, and I 
thank you for making Hinds a part of your education. 

Thank you, 

Sk W/ytfc

It is rare that an individual can command as much 
respect from so many different reaches of a college 
campus as Vashti Muse did in her 30-plus years of 
service to Hinds Community College. In fact, Mrs. 
Muse drew admirers from beyond the confines of 
the college, from across the state of Mississippi and 
from far reaches of the country as a whole. And 
while we have all seen lists of the numerous 
accolades Mrs. Muse received during her career as 
an educator, the accomplishments that will live on in 
our hearts are the ones that may not have resulted 
in a certificate or a plaque — they are the indelible 
impressions she made every day on the lives of 
individual students who have walked the campuses 
of Hinds Community College. 

The benefits that students have reaped from the 
commitment of Vashti Muse cannot be quantified. 
She was an innovator in the field of college-level 
reading instruction and therefore helped shape 
Mississippi's position in fighting challenges in adult 
literacy. She was a visionary whose early role in 
developmental education is largely responsible for 
the college's current emphasis on developmental 
learning across the curriculum. She was a mentor 
whose academic instruction was tempered by an 
insistence that her students attain a sense of 
responsibility and self-awareness so that they would 
never sell themselves short. And she was an idealist 
in instilling in her students not only learning but also 
a love of learning that would benefit them far 
beyond the boundaries of Hinds.

Because of her decades of cornrnitment to student 

achievement in these ways and her unmistakable 

mark on our lives, the 201 1 Eagle Yearbook staff is 

honored to dedicate this year's project to the memory 

of one of the college's most influential educators, 

Vashti Underwood Muse.

Taylor Berry, a freshman 

elementary education major, was 

named Miss Hinds Community 

College 2011 on Thursday, Feb. 

10 at Hogg Auditorium in Cain- 

Cochrari Hall. 

Berry was crowned by Miss Hinds 

2010, Ashley Nowell of Clinton. 

Berry's talent was dancing. 

As Miss Hinds, she will be eligible 

to compete in the Miss Mississippi 

pageant over the summer. 

From left: Rakim Rowley, Taylor Berry (Miss Hinds 201 1), Julian Walker and Demarico Parks. 

As a part of the Housing and 
Residence Life's mission to 
promote excellence among 
our collegiate students, the 
Residence Hall Association 
sponsored its 2nd annual, 

"Man of the Year- 
competition Feb. 28 in Bee 
Hall. This year's contestants, 
Rakim Rowley, Julian Walker 
and Demarico Parks, 
showcased their style, 
intelligence and confidence 

as they competed in the 

categories of Casual Wear, 

On-Stage Interview and 

Talent. Last year's Man of 

the Year, Daniel Klein, 

presented this year's 

winners Rakim Rowley and 

Julian Walker with the 

distinct honor. The title was 

given to both men as voting 

resulted in a tie. 


College officials frequently say that successful 

students are the best advertising for Hinds 

Community College. That's why the college's 

marketing staff spends considerable time and 

effort in selecting students for its publications 

and advertisements. Kendra Sue Robinson, 

marketing specialist in the Community 

Relations division, has established a network of 

college employees who recommend students for 

the college's marketing campaign, which may 

include television, print, web and Eagle Vision 


"Community colleges are local institutions. 

When we use current students in our 

advertising, it helps to strengthen that local 

connection," Robinson said. For instance, the 

college may strategically place a billboard 

featuring a Northwest Rankin high school 

student along a route traveled to the high 

school each day. 

"In addition, it's a mini lesson in marketing for 

the students who participate," Robinson said.

designated day and time. Meetings of the ASG are led by the president, vice president, senators 

and the adviser (s). The meetings are conducted using parliamentary procedure such as that used in 

the actual government of the United States. This provides for quick action and involves all the 

senators in the decisions that are made. 

District ASG is composed of delegates from each campus senate, and this body meets four times a 
year. Presidents of each senate serve on the College's District Student Affairs Council.
