Hinds Community College District
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.

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
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.

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.

way for students new and
returning to get involved in
fun activities. Events were
offered during the days and
nights including the
Watermelon Fest, the 1 2-f oot
tall foam party, Eat Healthy
Day and the ice cream
giveaway. Many of the
activities took place when

more than 900 students at the summer and fall graduation
ceremonies, which were held on the Raymond Campus. On July 30, the
summer ceremony granted 120 associate degrees in arts, 104
associate degrees in applied sciences, 72 career certificates and 59
technical certificates. The fall ceremony, held on Dec. 16 and Dec. 17,

the River Oaks Health System, and Paula Wimbish, chairwoman of the
Raymond Campus reading/education department and district
coordinator for reading and education. Pitts addressed the nursing
graduates from throughout the college district while Wimbish

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.

campuses as a one-hour credited course. Student senates on each campus meet once a week on the
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.
