JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – On Friday, Hinds Community College hosted the Jackson Campus-Academic/Technical Center Summerfest.
The event allowed prospective students to apply to the college, tour the campus, and register for classes. It will also include free food, games, and giveaways.
Dr. Aleisha Escobedo, the event coordinator, said, “We’re a family. We want people to know that we are here to help build up our citizens. We care about Jackson. We care about the community. We’re hopeful that this process is able to do that.”
One student, Fredrica Williams, said she is studying to be a radiologist. She said Hinds Community College is helping her fulfilling her dream.
“My dream is helping others and Hinds Community College is going to keep me on the path and keep me in the right direction so that I can,” said Williams.
