This chapter is open to all alumni who live in the Rankin County area. Hinds Community College enrolls approximately 3,600 students from Rankin County each year. The Hinds Community College Rankin County Alumni Chapter provides scholarships to high school graduates wishing to attend our college. The Rankin Chapter was able to fund their scholarship program through the Louis G. Strickland Golf Classic at Eagle Ridge Golf Course in Raymond. The Golf Classic was named in memory of Mr. Louis Gene Strickland, a dedicated Hinds Alumnus and loyal Rankin County resident. The chapter raised over $50,000 for scholarship assistance to high school students of Rankin County through the tournament.
