Faculty & Staff Development

Before a successful institution can be built, a cornerstone must be laid.  The cornerstone of Hinds Community College is the faculty, staff, and administrators and their continued dedicated service to the college.  With the unrestricted funds garnered through the Foundation, we are able to recognize, reward, and celebrate our employees in several ways throughout the year.

Employee Appreciation

The Annual Employee Appreciation Event honors all employees for their hard work and dedication throughout the school year and celebrates three specific groups of employees who have earned an award or service pin.

Hinds Heroes

24 employees nominated and selected each year for providing outstanding customer service and being deemed a hero in someone’s life. To nominate an employee as a Hinds Hero, please fill out our nomination form.

Years of Service Employees

Those who have reached years of service milestones receive a lapel pin for commemoration. 

3E Award Recipient

This is the highest award given at Hinds Community College to someone who displays Emphasis on Excellence and Enrichment


Retiree Luncheon

The Retiree Luncheon is hosted annually to celebrate employees upon retirement wherein they are given a token of appreciation.

Emeritus Status

Emeritus status is given by the College Board of Trustees to distinguished retirees. The Foundation provides semi-annual lunches for them to stay in contact with the college.
