Service members to be honored at Hinds CC

RAYMOND, MS (Mississippi News Now) - Local service members, whether active or retired, and their families will be recognized at Hinds Community College's Military Appreciation Day. It will be held at the Muse Center on the Rankin Campus at 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.

“The Military Appreciation Day brings the local resources to help service members and their families," said Ryan Braswell, coordinator of Veterans Services at Hinds Community College. "It gives the military families a chance to have a one-stop shop with programs they may not have been aware existed.” 

The day will also include family-friendly fun, including activities and free food.

Hinds employees, including counselors and financial aid advisers, will be on hand to offer information about education benefits service members might qualify for and how to use them at the college.

Attendees can also learn about career services, academic programs, health-related programs and other one- and two-year career and technical programs offered at Hinds.
