If I could describe Holmes Community College in one word, it would be rare. When I think of our campuses, teachers, faculty and staff – it is unlike any other. I have always said, Holmes is a special place with very special people. As a student, I was able to get a full college experience on the Goodman campus and fortunate to be a part of many organizations it has to offer such as, Ambassadors, Phi Theta Kappa, Connection!, Choir, Student Government Association, and Baptist Student Union. After graduating from Holmes Community College, I received my B.A. from Mississippi College in Communications with a concentration in Public Relations and a minor in Marketing.
Attending Holmes was one of the best decisions I have made, and I look forward to helping others make that decision, as well. Our saying holds true – There’s No Place Like Holmes.
Holmes is a special place to me, as a Holmes Alumni. During my time as a student at Holmes, I was an Ambassador, Secretary of the Student Government Association, a member of the Baptist Student Union and manager for the tennis team. Being involved on campus opened up many doors and allowed me to explore so many opportunities. After attending Holmes, I earned my B.A. from Mississippi State University in Communications with a concentration in Public Relations. It is so exciting to return to Holmes as an employee and help the students achieve their goals. As Recruiter and Student Activities Coordinator , I hope to show our current students all that Holmes has to offer.
As a Holmes alum, Holmes holds a special place in my heart. Some of the most memorable experiences of my college career stemmed from getting involved in student organizations such as the Ambassador Team and getting to know the welcoming faculty and staff. Holmes was the stepping stone that allowed me to investigate and validate avenues that I wanted to pursue. As a recruiter for the college, I truly enjoy helping students make that same first step. This is one of the most significant decisions in your life. Whether you’re a first time student or someone who wants to follow that dream that was put on hold – now is your time. Make the most of the opportunities that are waiting for you.
