interact with each other on a daily basis at Northwest. Ea
generation offers something worthwhile and exciting. This mixture of different ages
faces, values and views is what makes Northwest the unique entity it is. NWCC is
uniquely diverse because of the multitude of generations that gather here.

While members of the older generation view an understanding of history as a
way to plan for the future, the younger generation focuses on balancing academic
and social life. Students have a desire to know the reason behind what is happening
and what they do. They are optimistic about the future, and Northwest's educators
are optimistic about being a part of that future.

The generation to which a person belongs can greatly affect many aspects of
their life. Generational traits develop during the formative years of that genera-
tion. Northwest's generation of educators thoroughly understand the importance
of their role in instilling academic excellence in the younger generation; 8,756
students to be exact. Faculty spend their time personally and professionally dealing
with students of many generations.

Each generation has its own influences that contribute to Northwest's rich
heritage.





WE MAY CONSIDER EACH GENERATION AS A
'ISTINCT NATION, WITH A RIGHT, BY THE WILL OF
.S MAJORITY, TO BIND THEMSELVES, BUT NONE
TO BIND THE SUCCEEDING GENERATION, MORE
THAN THE INHABITANTS OF ANOTHER COUNTRY.'

THOMAS JEFFERSON

tobia campus in the spring of 20 10. The banner design was created
by Diana Domingue Thornton, a Northwest alumna now living in
Memphis.

ECET BUILDING DEDICATED,

NAMED IN HDNDR

DF MARILYN R. 5PEAR5

COLLEGE'S FIRST LADY INSTRUMENTAL IN EDUCATION
OF NEW GENERATIONS AT NORTHWEST




THE NORTHWEST COMMUNITY celebrated the
dedication of the Early Childhood Education Technol-
ogy Building in a special ceremony held May 4 on the
Senatobia campus. The facility will now be known as
the Marilyn R. Spears Building.

The building was named in honor of retired faculty
member, Marilyn R. Spears, who also serves as the
college's first lady. Spears became an instructor in the
Child Care Technology program, as it was called at the
time, in 1 985 and later became the lead instructor.

This included supervising the Child Enrichment Cen-
ter, which provides day care for three and four-year-old
children of Northwest employees and adult students.

Action at the October 2009 meeting of the North-
west Board of Trustees named the building in Spears'
honor. In further action at the Nov. 1 2 meeting, it was
announced that the facility would be named the Marilyn
R. Spears Building.

"I feel very flattered that they would do that for my
wife," said Northwest President, Dr. Gary Lee Spears.
"She has been an excellent first lady for the college.
She works very hard, unpaid position of course, to
represent Northwest and assist me in my duties," said
Dr. Spears.

According to Mrs. Spears, she feels honored and
humbled to have been associated with a program
that makes such a difference in the lives of so many
people.

"I'm just so proud for those ladies who work and
teach in that building," she said. "It's everything we
ever dreamed it would be."

Spears is credited with helping populate the
program through innovative teaching and implementa-
tion of classes through the college's evening school
program. These classes helped teacher assistants and



Head Start workers meet new state requirements.
According to Jerry Nichols, associate vice president of
Career-Technical Education and Workforce Develop-
ment, the Northwest community had demonstrated the
need for the ECET facility for several years.

"We emphasized quality in all programs and we
were stuck with a facility that did not reflect that. Now
we have the quality facility we needed," said Nichols.

In the dedication ceremony, Dr. Spears welcomed
guests followed by opening remarks by Nichols.

Mrs. Spears' fellow instructor for many years, Judy
Barham, gave a tribute, as did another Career-Tech
faculty member, Signy Givens, who spoke from the
perspective of a parent whose children were enrolled
at the Child Enrichment Center.

"On May 30, 2008, when dirt work was started for
this facility, all our dreams began to become a reality,"
said Mrs. Spears. The former facility was simply a
faculty house that had been renovated to serve as
the Child Enrichment Center. Mrs. Spears called it "a
treasure" that meant a lot to the Northwest students
as well as to the children who were enrolled there.

"I am truly honored that this building will bear my
name," said Mrs. Spears. "My cup runneth over."
The program concluded with comments and a
description of the facility by Early Childhood Education
Technology lead instructor, Dr. Alice Camp.

PATTERSON
RETIRES



PUBLIC RELATIONE DIRECTOR'5
RETIREMENT MARKS EPOCH

PATTERSON URGES NORTHWEST TO PASS TRADITIONS TO
FUTURE GENERATIONS



PUBLIC RELATIONS DIRECTOR NANCY PATTERSON
retired June 30, 201 after spending almost four
decades "telling the Northwest story," whether it be
through the college's radio station, as adviser of the
college's yearbook and newspaper, as a photographer
at campus events, through her news releases on the
people, generations and things that make Northwest
great, or as the college's chief marketer.

"While I'm proud of all the awards and accolades
I've received, I'll remember most the student stories,"
said Patterson. "I'm honored to have been one of
Northwest's storytellers for the past 32 years."

Patterson has been a mainstay at Northwest since
she began working part-time for the campus radio
station in the 70s, but her affiliation with the college
goes back to her childhood. "I don't remember when
Northwest was not a part of my life," said Patterson.
"My great aunt Ruth Cole was the dietician for the
cafeteria in the 1 950s and '60s. When she retired she
came to live with us. Before she retired, I spent time
with her on the campus in the old dorms that were
located where the Tunica Building is now.

"She brought me to see the Northwest Misses
(now the Rangerettes) at football games, to plays and
always to Homecoming. That's a tradition I passed
on to my children as I brought them with me to cover
campus events."

Patterson began her Northwest journey when she
enrolled as a broadcasting major in 1972. In 1973
she served as a summer news intern for the campus
radio station, WNJC, learning on day one what the news
business was all about.

"My first day on the air Spiro Agnew resigned as
vice president," she said. "Then we had an AP (Associ-
ated Press) machine that tapped out breaking news. It
was exciting to have a news event the first day on the
air."

In 1974, Patterson was named Outstanding Broad-
casting Student after serving two years as part-time
traffic coordinator and on-air talent. "I worked the
summer that we aired the Watergate hearings. I don't
think we played a record all summer," she said. She re-
ceived her Associate of Arts from Northwest in 1 980.



After spending time at radio stations in Holly
Springs, Greenwood and Coldwater, Patterson and her
young son, Jason Gibert, returned to Senatobia to start
a new life. She took a job at a place familiar to her —
WNJC. Hired by Director of Fine Arts Glenn Triplett and
Station Manager Bob Boggan, Patterson began as mu-
sic director and was named co-manager after Boggan
left the station. In 1 980, Patterson became general
manager and was the youngest female manager in the
National Public Radio system of stations.

"Those days were filled with adventures," recalls
Patterson. "When the college was closed, we still
reported for work. Breaking the ice on the doors of
the Humanities Building at 5 a.m. during Christmas
holidays was something I would rather have missed."

WNJC, the first public radio station in Mississippi,
went dark in 1 988. Patterson was transferred to the
college's Public Relations Office to work with Dr. Ann
Whitten, director. "Dr. Whitten and I had worked closely
to cover events for the college so I was familiar with
PR. operations but had never worked in print journal-
ism," said Patterson. "Moving to PR. forced me out
of my comfort zone, and that was good. When I look
back at my feature stories, I realize that I write like an
electronic news story sounds!"

Patterson served one year as public relations as-
sistant before being named assistant director in 1989.
In that position, she was responsible for the layout and
design of various college publications, coverage of
news events on campus, advising the newspaper and
yearbook, video production and assisting with advertis-
ing for the college.

"Dr. Whitten certainly set the bar high for all of us.
We still have situations in the office where we look
at each other and without saying, know what she
would think or say. She taught me so much more than
just journalism and PR. techniques. She opened the
world of art to me, and when we traveled, she was
so much fun. During the years that I drove a one-ton
dually truck so I could show horses and she drove a
Mercedes, I think she was a little upset with my image."

Following Dr. Whitten's death in 2003, Patterson
did something she had wanted to do for several





years — she returned to college to finish her degree. "I was
the recipient of the Ann Whitten Liberal Arts Scholarship at
The University of Mississippi-DeSoto Center," she said. "It
was quite an experience to be a part of the program that we
have worked so hard to promote." A Liberal Arts major with
emphases in English, history and sociology, she was named
Outstanding Liberal Arts Student and received a Bachelor of
Arts from the university in 2005. That same year, she was
named director of Public Relations at Northwest.

When she wasn't covering news events for the college,
Patterson enjoyed spending time riding and showing horses
with her daughters, Hayley and Olivia. The Pattersons were
regulars at area horse shows; they participated in American
Quarter Horse Association events, and were active in 4-H for
several years.

"I was fortunate to have grown up as the daughter of one
of the last real cowboys," said Patterson. "My daddy, Hayley
Dandridge, raised Charolais and Salers cattle. He was one
of the first breeders of Appaloosa horses in this part of the
country. He instilled in me a love of animals and an apprecia-
tion of the life lessons they provide."

So what will she do in her retirement?

"I want to spend time doing great things with my grand-
children, children and my husband, Howard," she states. "I
want to enjoy my home, which is located on family farmland
in Barr, and have time to do some writing and spend time
with my friends."

Many of those friends began as her colleagues at North-
west. "I have made some 'forever friends' at Northwest.
When I have faced challenges — both personal and profes-
sional — it has always surprised me by the outpouring of
support I received from my friends and colleagues."

As a freelance writer for publications such as DeSoto
magazine, Patterson hopes to continue that part of her life
into retirement. She recently wrote a Mother's Day piece
about her mother, Marjorie Latham Dandridge, for the May
edition of DeSoto magazine.

"I always enjoyed writing feature stories more than
anything else we did in PR.," she recalls. "It's been said that
everyone has a story, and I believe that. It was challenging
to get to know our students or faculty members and to help
them tell 'their Northwest story' — how Northwest had made
an impact on their lives or directed their futures."

YOUR STRENGTH LIES



WITHIN THE LONGEVITY OF



YOUR FACULTY AND THE



BALANCE OF SEASONED



FACULTY WITH YOUR NEW



MEMBERS.



MARY JO KIRKPATRICK



NUR5ING KNDW5
ND BDUND5

NURSING DIVISION RECEIVES GRANT
FOR EQUIPMENT, ACES ACCREDITATION



JUST WHEN THE EXCITEMENT ABOUT THE NEW
DIVISION OF NURSING FACILITY began to settle, faculty
learned about a $495,000 Federal grant approved
by Congress and the Health Resources and Services
Administration (HRSA) for new lab and classroom
equipment to furnish their new home and heard news
of their recommendation for
reaccreditation. The equipment purchases will
provide students with practicum training on-site rather
than having to secure all of their experience at
off-site hospitals. The building and its new equipment
will also improve the quality of instruction through
the introduction of new teaching technologies.

"We are planning to purchase high-fidelity simula-
tors for the simulation lab in our new building," said
Ellen Williams, dean of the Division of Nursing at
Northwest.

"A variety of clinical experiences may be provided
to our students with the use of these life-like Manikins.
Through simulation, students will be able to use critical
thinking skills and practice critical decision making
while administering medications and performing
interventions in a safe setting. Students will have the
opportunity to provide care in situations that
may not be available to them in the hospital setting."

Interactive lecterns that will house the computer
and electronic equipment for instructors to use in
teaching and communicating with the students in the
classrooms to perform virtual laboratory and practi-
cum tasks; an AccuDose machine medication dispenser,
which allows student access to unit dose medications;
infusion pumps for infusing fluids, medications or
nutrients into a patient's circulatory system; and a
Dynamap machine used to monitor vital signs of a
patient are just a few of the items among the 33
pieces of medical and teaching equipment authorized
for purchase by the grant. The total for the entire
equipment list is $602,638. The amount of the Federal
grant is $495,000, leaving $107,638, which will be
paid from state appropriations provided for Northwest



and private donations made through the Northwest
Foundation.

While Northwest carefully managed state
appropriations to fund the construction of the new
nursing facility, Northwest President, Dr. Gary Lee
Spears, and his administration have been working for
two years with the Congressional delegation represent-
ing Northwest to get this funding for the equipment
within the new facility.

Sybil Canon, associate vice president of Develop-
ment and Special Projects at Northwest, credits Spears
with approaching Sen. Thad Cochran's office about
Northwest's need for equipment in the new nursing
building by citing the fully furnished facility's potential
to meet area healthcare needs and provide jobs for
Northwest students.

Sen. Cochran's office presented the equipment
needs to the appropriate budget committee before the
grant garnered passage by the full Congress and was
included in the Congressional budget. With the help of
Williams, Gary Mosley, vice president for Fiscal Affairs,
and Dan Smith, vice president for Student Affairs,
Canon provided the complete rationale and budgetary
data necessary for final grant consideration to the
HRSA.

Within a 60-mile radius of Northwest's Senatobia
campus, there are eight major hospitals, each with
more than 1 50 beds. The projected increase in nurs-
ing enrollment at Northwest made possible by the new,
expansive nursing facility and equipment will help meet
the demand for nurses in these hospitals and in other
healthcare agencies.

The new nursing building and the state-of-the-art
equipment purchased with the grant will allow for the
eventual expansion of the college's Division of
Nursing enrollment. Currently, more than
1 50 qualified students are unable to enter the
Division of Nursing at Northwest each
semester because of lack of physical space to
accommodate these students.



OPPOSITE PACE: Division of Nursing students started calling this
new state-of-the-art facility home in the 201 1 spring semester. New
furniture was moved into classrooms and labs as finishing touches
were added to the building last fall.

The Division of Nursing continued their celebration after receiving news of their
recommendation for accreditation for the next eight years following a site review of
its Associate Degree nursing program by the National League for Nursing Accrediting
Commission, Inc. (NLNAC) and the Mississippi Institutions of Higher Learning's (IHL)
Nursing Education unit.

"Your strength lies within the longevity of your faculty and the balance of
seasoned faculty with your new members," said Mary Jo Kirkpatrick, MSN, RN, chair
of Nursing at Mississippi University for Women. "Your faculty's dedication is evident,
and it is almost chilling to hear the students say how you go overboard in helping
students succeed and that you would do whatever it took to help them."

Both accrediting agencies' members commented on their satisfaction with the new
nursing facility, describing the new space and its teaching technologies as one of the
top labs in the country. "Your integration of simulation is innovative and will enhance
the clinical experience for your students," said Kirkpatrick.

Before presenting their final recommendations on Sept. 29, both accreditation
teams spent two days meeting with faculty, administration, students, recent graduates
and community members; observing classrooms; visiting clinical sites at The Med
and Baptist Memorial Hospital— DeSoto; and touring the Learning Resource Center
and new nursing facility. The teams also conducted an exhaustive review for compli-
ance and accuracy of faculty educational and clinical credentials and continuing



education unit documentation, syllabi, Division publications and student admissions
files.

The public was invited to tour the new facility and share comments about the
Nursing program Sept. 28.

Senatobia Mayor, Alan Callicott; Tate County Economic Development Foundation Ex-
ecutive Director, Janie Mortimer; and Mississippi Department of Employment Security
Special Projects Coordinator, Gary Mills attended the meeting to tell the review com-
mittee about Northwest Nursing's positive impact on the healthcare and economic
development in Senatobia and surrounding areas.

"The first thing newcomers to Mississippi want to know is if we have good health-
care, and this program is producing the best nurses in the state," said Mills. "New
industry and businesses come here because they know they can rely on the health
care here."

"The Nursing program is the pride and joy of the community," said Mortimer. "The
Northwest Nursing program was one of the first things I heard about when I moved
to the community because of its quality and rippling effects on the community."

Mississippi IHL full accreditation is pending the completion of the NLNAC ac-
creditation. Full NLNAC accreditation is a twofold process to be completed in March
after the team's recommendation is reviewed by the full NLNAC accreditation board in
Atlanta.

HOMECOMING

OLD AND YOUNG UNITE FOR ANNUAL TRADITION



H i L L P I






HOMECOMING. Simply stated, one could say that this annual tradition
brings together Northwest contemporaries. Welcoming back generations
of alumni reinforces the importance of honoring this tradition in younger
generations. Interactions between different peers creates a feeling of kin-
ship and cameraderie.

Homecoming events were held Oct. 1 3 -16, and culminated with a 33-3
Ranger victory over Mississippi Delta Community College. The theme of this
year's festivities was "Footloose."

Events kicked off Oct. 1 3 with a cookout at the DeSoto Center and a
video game contest ('80s and current) in the Union Gym on the Senatobia
campus. A cookout was held at the Oxford campus Oct. 14. That evening
in Howard Coliseum in Senatobia, students enjoyed an '80s-themed dance.
A sidewalk chalk art contest outside the gates of Ranger Stadium gave
students the opportunity to create one-of-a-kind artwork.

Northwest's volunteerism group for faculty, staff and students, North-
west Cares, hosted a children's carnival at their first Fall Family Fun-Raiser
from 1 1 a.m. to 1 :30 p.m. on the Ag field before the Homecoming game
Oct. 1 6. Children of all ages enjoyed carnival games and prizes. Games
included sack races, three-legged races, bean bag toss, football toss, ping
pong toss, bowling, limbo, ring toss, pluck a duck and go fishing. Other
activities included face painting, pumpkin decorating, a cheer/dance camp,
homecoming pictures and meet the cast of "You're a Good Man, Charlie
Brown."

An Alumni Reception Luncheon was held Oct. 16 followed by the recog-
nition of the 2010 Alumnus of the Year and 50-year alumni in the Haraway
Center. Football festivities brought a performance by the Ranger Band dur-
ing pre-game. At halftime the Homecoming Courts from all three campuses
were presented. Events were coordinated by Liesl Davenport, Intramural
coordinator. Davenport handled elections, fieldwork, the football-recruiting
day, the Alumni luncheon and the Homecoming dance.

When asked her favorite part to plan, she responded, "All of the festive
parts. Everything that leads up to the game." She said planning the event
is a long process.
"We started planning the theme and activities for Homecoming in March."

Jock Gadd



STATE RER JACK GADD received the Northwest Alumnus of the Year Award at the
Homecoming Alumni and Friends Celebration luncheon Oct. 16.

"It feels really nice to be named Alumnus of the Year," said Gadd. "Northwest was
my home away from home. I met many people who would become my lifelong friends,
and all of my teachers and coaches were invested in my education."

In grade school, Gadd attended Hickory Flat School. He graduated in 1973
and continued his education at Northwest with a basketball scholarship. Gadd was
involved in basketball and baseball at Northwest until he graduated in 1975. He then
enrolled at The University of Mississippi.

After receiving his bachelor's and master's degrees in education from Ole Miss, he
returned to Hickory Flat School as the girls' basketball coach and the assistant boys'
basketball coach for the next seven years. Ole Miss then hired him as the assistant
girls' basketball coach for two years.

Gadd purchased WQU Radio with David Kellum, broadcasting Northwest and Ole
Miss athletic events on the station.

In 1 991 he was elected Democratic representative for the 1 3th District of Missis-
sippi. Gadd has served as vice chairman of the Universities and Colleges Committee,
chair of the Universities and Colleges Budget Committee, and chair of the Department
of Public Safety. He is a member of the Public Property Committee, Tourism Commit-
tee, Transportation Committee, Universities and Colleges Committee, and Ways and
Means Committee.

Gadd has participated in many organizations including Lions Club, McLean Insti-
tute, Mississippi Association of Broadcasters and Ole Miss Alumni Association.

As a representative, Gadd serves the community and has been a member of the
local volunteer fire department. For the past six years, he has coached children in
grades 3 through 6 with the Saturday Morning Basketball program. Larry Simpson,
dean of Enrollment Management and registrar, introduced Gadd at the luncheon.

"Jack is a man of integrity and impeccable character," Simpson said of his friend.
"When I think of an Alumnus of the Year, Jack meets every criteria."

Gadd resides in his hometown, Hickory Flat, with his wife, the former Merri
"Pebble" Stone, and their three children, Cody, Jeanie Anne and Jacob.

FRESHMAN KEILA RACHAEL DUARTE OF BATESVILLE WAS NAMED "MOST BEAUTIFUL" at Northwest's
annual Beauty Review on March 1. The 19-year-old pre-medicine major is the daughter of Albert Duarte
and Michelle Sorrells. Duarte is a Ranger cheerleader and Diamond Girl for the Ranger Baseball team.
Duarte was motivated to enter the pageant because of her experience in high school. "I've entered a
beauty review when I was in high school. I thought it'd be a fun way to meet new people." she said.

Duarte really enjoyed the experience. "We had so much guidance from the sponsors. We were told
exactly how to turn for photographs, where to walk. Everyone was really nice and sweet," she said.

Duarte says that being crowned the winner came as a big surprise. "It was unexpected and the best
part of this whole experience," she said.

According to Duarte, she was really nervous and that was her least favorite part of the experience.
She plans to attend The University of Mississippi upon graduating from Northwest.

Ashlea Marie Stephenson of Como, an 18-year-old freshman pre-pharmacy major, was chosen first
runner-up. Stephenson is the daughter of John and Khristy Stephenson. Chosen as second runner-up
was Vivian Kelsey Hill of Olive Branch, a sophomore secondary education major. She is the daughter of
Michael and Tina Hill. Third runner-up was Hillari Lynn Plummer, an 18-year-old elementary education
major from Pope. Plummer is the daughter of Damon and Brandie Plummer. Winning fourth runner-up
was Alexia Constance Sanders, 23, of Oxford. Sanders is a sophomore nursing major. She is the daugh-
ter of Paul and Nellie Sanders.

"We were really excited about this year's Beauty Review," said Liesl Davenport, Northwest Intramural
coordinator and Beauty Review coordinator. "We had a lot of great contestants, and I am pleased with
the outcome," she said.

Escorts were Titus Hawkins of Clarksdale and Braden Greer of Coldwater. Northwest Payroll Officer
Brenda Stepp and math instructor Kristie Waldrop served as auditors. Judges were Mandy Price, Penny
Byrd and Allie Love.

THEATRE HAS THE POWER TO INSPIRE, AND IT IS A POWER
NORTHWEST'S PRODUCTION OF 'TWO ROOMS' WIELDED
TO ITS FULLEST

UNDER THE DIRECTION OF SADIE SHANNON, Northwest debuted "Two Rooms" by
Lee Blessing on the Northwest stage in the spring of 2010.

Performance dates for the play were Thursday - Saturday, April 29 - May 1 at 7:30
p.m. with a matinee on Sunday, May 2 at 2:30 p.m. in the Fine Arts Auditorium on the
Senatobia campus.

"'Two Rooms' is a small political show about a woman whose husband is being held
hostage in Beirut by Arab terrorists," said Shannon. "The play is about his struggles
and his wife, Lainie's, ability to deal with the ordeal."

It takes place in two rooms, as the title suggests. One room being the windowless
cubicle where Michael is being held hostage, and the other is his office at home, in the
United States, where his wife Lainie stays — devoid of furniture in order to basi-
cally put herself in his situation. Lainie is visited by Walker, a reporter trying to get a
story and Ellen, a government official trying to keep Lainie quiet. There is a constant
struggle between the media and the government amidst the pain Lainie and Michael
are feeling.

"Two Rooms" only has four characters, whose roles are substantial to the play, ac-
cording to Shannon.

The cast included Lauren Fore as Lainie Wells, Billy Leishman as Michael Wells, both
of Senatobia; Joe Arndt of Independence as Walker Harris, and Cheyenne Stewart of
Eupora as Ellen Van Oss.

The crew included Northwest Fine Arts instructor Joel King as technical director,
Casey Davis of Olive Branch as stage manager, Gabby D'Arcangelo of Southaven as
assistant stage manager and Ellen's understudy, Ashley Dees of Batesville as assistant
stage manager and Lainie's understudy, and Abbey Sewell of Walls as line coach.

CLASSIC CARTOON DEBUTS
ON THE NORTHWEST STAGE



You're a GOOD Man,
D sT GE Charlie Brown'



NORTHWEST'S FALL MUSICAL "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown,"
premiered Wednesday, Oct. 27 in the Fine Arts Auditorium on the Senatobia
campus.

The dates for the production were Oct. 27-29, and 30 at 7 p.m. and the
final performance on Oct. 31 at 2 p.m.

The cast had been preparing for the musical since late August, meeting
several days a week for rehearsal and vocal exercises.

"The cast grew really close, and we all had a good time together on and
off stage," said Katie Hardeman of Hernando, who played Lucy.

"We were blessed to be working with a director who not only has a vision
for where she wanted the show to go, but one who knew how to get us there.
I consider myself blessed to have been able to work alongside some of my
closest friends on this production."



"I was not so much nervous as I was excited. I'm eager to show people all
of the hard work we put into the show, and I hope they enjoyed it as much as I
did," said Hardeman.

Emma Wilson of Southaven, who played Snoopy, made her stage debut.

"This was my first show here at Northwest, and I was very anxious to see
how the audience would receive our show," said Wilson.

Director and speech and theatre instructor, Sadie Shannon, is very proud
of her cast and crew.

"We had a great group of students this year, and our department has
tripled in size," said Shannon. "I feel blessed to have worked with such a
talented cast and crew. This show from the surface looked easy but presented
itself with many challenges. The cast and crew rose to the level of expecta-
tions required of them and continue to set the bar high for incoming students.

I am proud of them."

RE A GOOD MAN, CHARLIE BROWN > 27



WE ARE EDUEATED

LATEST GENERATION OF NORTHWEST GRADUATES EMBARK ON NEW VENTURES




MISSISSIPPI STATE UNIVERSITY PRESIDENT, DR. MARK E. KEENUM of Starkville,
addressed Northwest graduates in two ceremonies on Friday, May 14 at Howard
Coliseum.

An estimated 591 students participated in the graduation ceremony this year.
According to Larry Simpson, dean of Enrollment Management and Registrar, this
year's candidates included 124 Associate of Applied Science graduates, 215 Career
Certificate recipients and 252 Associate of Arts graduates.

Students receiving Associate of Arts degrees participated in the 2 p.m. ceremony.
Occupational Therapy major Kayla Adair of Senatobia delivered the invocation.
Diplomas were awarded by Dr. Marilyn Bateman, Academic Dean. Simpson announced
graduates at both ceremonies.

The Northwest Symphonic Band, under the direction of John Ungurait, performed
the processional and recessional. "America the Beautiful" was presented by the
Northwest Singers and Symphonic Band. The Singers are directed by Susanne Spencer
VanDyke, who also led graduates and guests in singing the Northwest Alma Mater.

Keenum became Mississippi State's 1 9 lh president on Jan. 5, 2009. Prior to that
he served two years as under secretary of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. He
also served as chief of staff for Senator Thad Cochran from 1996-2006. While doing
so, Keenum remained a faculty member at Mississippi State University in an adjunct
professor capacity, teaching an annual course in agricultural legislative policy.

In 1989, Keenum joined the Washington, D.C., staff of U.S. Sen. Cochran as legisla-



tive assistant for Agriculture and Natural Resources. In 1 984 he served as marketing
director of the Mississippi Cooperative Extension Service.

Keenum received his bachelor's, master's, and doctoral degrees in agricultural
economics from Mississippi State University. He also holds an associate degree from
Northeast Mississippi Community College.

Keenum's inspirational journey in becoming the president of Mississippi State Uni-
versity after graduating from a community college was a key determination in selecting
him as this year's keynote speaker.

"He is a knowledgeable person concerning community colleges and education in
general. He is a sincere, genuine, down-to-earth and intelligent person," said North-
west President, Dr. Gary Lee Spears, who welcomed graduates and guests.
Keenum is married to Rhonda Keenum. The couple has four children.

Students receiving Associate of Applied Science degrees and Career Certificates
participated in the 10 a.m. ceremony where Haley White, a cosmetology major from
Senatobia, delivered the invocation. Jerry Nichols, associate vice president of Career-
Technical Education and Workforce Development, awarded diplomas and certificates.




OPPOSITE PACE: Academic Dean Dr. Marilyn Bateman awards occupational therapy
major Kayla Adair of Senatobia her diploma. Adair also delivered the invocation during

DE5DTD CENTER

NORTHWEST CAMPUS MIRRORS
DESOTO COUNTY GROWTH




NORTHEST'S DESOTO CENTER continues to set
record enrollment. With 3,71 1 students the center
recorded the greatest number of students out of
Northwest's three campuses. The center was up 463
students from fall '09.

The center continued its growth in the spring of
201 1 , with 2,646 day students and 895 evening
students.

The University of Mississippi-DeSoto Center
and Northwest are utilizing a 2+2 partnership to
respond to the educational demands in Northwest
Mississippi and the Mid-South. In the 2+2 program,
Northwest offers the first two years of the college
academic program, and The University of Mississippi
offers courses for the third and fourth years toward
a bachelor's degree.

DeSoto Center offers 1 2 programs that lead
to the awarding of the Associate of Arts degree
and are designed to transfer to most colleges and
universities. There are eight technical programs of-
fered on the Southaven campus and two at the Olive
Branch campus.

The faculty members selected for the Lamplighter
conference this year are Paul Grisham and Ginger
Flanagan from the DeSoto Center. The program was
held at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College
Sept. 29 -Oct. 1,2010.

The DeSoto Center campus, financed through
the efforts of the taxpayers of DeSoto County, is
a 94,000-square-foot structure located on 47.33,
acres. This site, donated by the W.E. Ross family,
offers the college opportunities to expand as DeSoto
County continues to grow.

The two-and-one-half-story facility is designed" to
accommodate 1 ,406 people. The building contains
28 classrooms, four computer labs, two science labs,
one practical nursing lab and 39 offices. A closed-
circuit TV system provides security for the building
as well as the parking area, which has a capacity for
approximately 800 cars.

In an effort to meet the training needs of the
citizens of DeSoto County and surrounding areas, a
career-technical campus was established in the Olive
Branch Metro Industrial Park. The campus officially
opened in the fall of 1985.

A variety of clubs and organizations are also
offered at DeSoto Center. Students can participate in
campus elections and the Homecoming Court.

COMBINED EFFORT OF FACULTY AND
STAFF MAKES DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES
OF MULTIPLE GENERATIONS OF STUDENTS




NORTHWEST'S LAFAYETTE-YALOBUSHA TECHNI-
CAL CENTER experienced an increase in enrollment
in the fall of 2010 with 1 ,548 students, up 1 53 from
the previous year.

"Under Dr. Butts' leadership, I feel all the faculty
and staff are exceptional. All of us work diligently
together to get the job done, no matter what it is.
We all try our best to do what is needed for our
students. Hopefully, we are making a difference to
some," said Brenda Holmes, CTE Support Services
coordinator at LYTC.

The Lafayette-Yalobusha Technical Center at Ox-
ford was opened in the fall of 1 983. An additional 1 1
acres of land for expansion was purchased in 1 999.
A 31 ,000-square-foot expansion was opened in
August 2002. A complete renovation of the original
building was completed in 2005 and included an ad-
dition for Physical Plant operations and a truck dock.

The third addition to the complex, completed in
2009, adds 1 0,900-square-feet. The focus of the
project was relocation of the Cosmetology program,
two additional classrooms and faculty offices.
Students attending the Oxford campus have ac-
cess to modern classrooms, labs, and a learning
resources center.

Since the opening of the 2002 expansion, the
library has increased its volumes for a total of more
than 9,000. At Oxford students can use online public
access catalogs, Internet, and MAGNOLIA databases.
The library area also includes a computer lab and a
group study room.

The center offers nine career and technical
programs designed to train students for direct entry
into the job market. Academic courses are also of-
fered.

Some of the most modern science labs in the
state can be found at Lafayette-Yalobusha Techni-
cal Center. Lab stations, which accommodate four
students each, feature Internet access allowing
students to view numerous dissection collections.
Using software like Dynamic Human, students can
use computer graphics to view the human heart at
work. Actual dissections also take place in the new
labs - giving students the best of both worlds.

A5HLAND CAMPUS

CAMPUS YIELDS HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL
STUDENTS ON STATE BOARD
EXAMINATIONS




NORTHWEST'S ASHLAND campus is located
approximately 54 miles Southeast of Memphis. Many
generations of students have made their dreams a
reality at Northwest's smallest campus.

The campus may lack size and the location may
be remote, but it certainly does not lack skilled
faculty members and substantial opportunities.

Many students have benefitted greatly from
the small class sizes and personal interaction with
instructors. Skilled faculty members have graduated
many cosmetologists and nursing students over the
years and will continue to do so for generations to
come.

SOPHOMORE ACCOUNTANCY MAJOR MIRANDA
CORE of Water Valley was selected as the HEADWAE
student, while Jay Anthony Lowrey, English instructor
at Lafayette-Yalobusha Technical Center in Oxford, was
selected as this year's HEADWAE faculty honoree.
"I feel very blessed being named a HEADWAE honoree,"
said Core. "I started college a little later than most at
the age of 26 after spending years working with my
special-needs son. I hope that I am setting an example
for others who may think that they are too old to start
furthering their education."

Lowrey said, "Being chosen a HEADWAE teacher
means a lot to me. Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote about
attaining the respect of intelligent people, so to be
chosen by an intelligent student is very gratifying."

HEADWAE stands for "Higher Education Apprecia-
tion Day, Working for Academic Excellence." It was
established by Mississippi Legislative Resolution #88
in 1 987 to annually honor the academically talented
students and faculty members of Mississippi's higher
education institutions who have made outstanding
contributions in promoting academic excellence.

The 201 1 Higher Education Appreciation Day took
place on Feb. 3 in Jackson and featured a luncheon to
show appreciation for selected honorees.

Core attends the Lafayette-Yalobusha Technical
Center in Oxford and is a member of Phi Theta Kappa.
She has been on Northwest's President's List three
semesters. She plans to continue her education at The
University of Mississippi's Patterson School of Accoun-
tancy.

HEADWAE



EVEMENT



"I enjoy the smaller class size that Northwest offers
as it gives you a chance to get to know your instructors
and fellow students," said Core.

According to Core, her favorite instructor is Jay
Lowrey. "He makes himself available to the students
and takes obvious enjoyment in his job."

"My inspirations are the three men in my life, my
father, my husband and my son. All three push me to
want to go farther in life. My motivation for success
is stronger than ever due to the fact that my father
passed away unexpectedly in January, and I am deter-
mined to live up to his expectations for me.
My husband is my biggest cheering section. Our son
has special needs, and the desire to give him an amaz-
ing life drives me," said Core.

Lowrey, a resident of Oxford, has been teaching
English at the Oxford campus for 1 3 years. He is the
chairman of the English Department on the Oxford
campus and chairman of the Who's Who Selection Com-
mittee for the Oxford campus.

He attended The University of Mississippi, where
he received a bachelor's degree in education and a
master's degree in English.

Lowrey's inspiration comes from his parents. "They
instilled a strong sense of ethics in me and my brother.

They taught us to show up on time, be where you're
supposed to be and do what you're supposed to do."

NORTHWEST OFFERS STUDENTS the option to participate in its in-
tramural sports program during the late afternoon and evening hours.
The program allows students to get out of their dorms to exercise and
learn a new sport at the same time. Every semester the program of-
fers 10 intramural sports including Flag Football, Basketball, Volleyball,
Wiffleball, Ultimate Frisbee and Billiards.

"Flag Football is definitely our most popular activitiy during the
fall semester. We have lots of teams and loads of spectators!"said
Intramurals Coordinator Liesl Davenport.

The college's new recreational and fitness facilities which include
outdoor tennis, basketball and volleyball courts, opened to students
shortly before the end of the fall 2010 semester.

According to Cameron Blount, director of Athletics and manager of
Intramural Sports and Recreation, the new facilities offer new opportu-
nities for the intramural program.

"These courts," said Blount, "will also enhance our health educa-
tion departments and will add to the intramural program we have
here."

Davenport explains that the program will use the new courts for
Hoop Shoot, Sand Volleyball, and Tennis.
"We're hoping the new Ranger Outdoor Recreation Facility will entice
more students to not only join in the fun, but hang around and watch,
as well," she said.

All students are invited and are encouraged to participate in these
activities which include volleyball, basketball, softball, flag football, ten-
nis, table tennis, billiards, and card games.

Regularly enrolled students are eligible to participate in intramural
sports except those students who are members of related varsity
teams. For more information on intramural sports at Northwest,
please contact Blount at cblount@northwestms.edu or Davenport at
ldavenport@northwestms.edu.

The program is voluntary in nature and is open to all full-time
students.

WHEN THE 2010-201 1 NORTHWEST CHEERLEADING SQUAD
was named in April 2010, then Northwest manager of Student
Activities and cheer sponsor Pam Wooten, knew that she had
found more talent than she was hoping for.

"It was an exceptionally hard decision this year because so
many of them have great talent," said Wooten.

Members of this year's squad are Cici Carver, Keila Duarte,
both of Batesville; Tenaria Morrow of Olive Branch; Hillari Plum-
mer, Haley Crawford, Mary Wilson, all of Pope; Robyn Thweatt of
Oxford; McKenzie Brower, Mallory Sneed, Gwendy Windham, all of
Hernando; Amy Laster, Ashton Williams, Adrian "Shonna" Tillman,
all of Grenada; Brittany Ferrell of Senatobia; Macy Kate Morris of
Nesbit and Britney Robison of Vicksburg and Lake Cormorant.

Liesl Davenport, Northwest's new Intramural coordinator
and cheer sponsor took over as cheer sponsor from Wooten in
August.

Davenport is a Senatobia native and graduated from Senatobia
High School. Davenport completed two years of college at North-
west then transferred to Eastern Washington University in Cheney,
Wash., where she earned a degree in outdoor recreation. After
college she joined the United States Air Force. Davenport served
as a survival, escape, and evasion instructor and as an Air Force
Office of Special Investigations agent.

According to Davenport, she always knew she wanted to deal
with fitness and training, and Northwest allows her to do so in her
own hometown.



"I love being around students, it keeps me young," said Dav-
enport. "I came to find out that the most important people are
here."

The Northwest cheerleaders are an all-female, non-competi-
tive squad made up of 16 girls. They cheer at all football games
and all home basketball games and travel with sporting teams to
playoff games, tournaments and bowl games. Cheerleaders who
live on campus receive a $1 ,000 scholarship per semester. Those
who commute receive an $850 scholarship per semester.

Angie Darbonne serves as coach.

NORTHWEST'S DANCE TEAM ADDS PIZZAZZ TO SPORTING, COLLEGE EVENTS



WRITTEN BY M ELAN IE CRUMP
PHOTOS BY THE ROCKETEER STAFF



THE 2010-201 1 RANGERETTES kicked off the school year with
their performance at "Meet the Rangers" held on Thursday, Aug. 26
at Ranger Stadium on the Senatobia campus.

The Rangerettes are a precision drill and dance team that ac-
companies the Ranger Marching Band in performances at football
games and in public appearances throughout the state.

This year's Rangerettes are Chelsea Owen and Annie Mullen,
both of Bruce; Nani Morgan, Horn Lake; Lauren Lott, Winona;
Chelsea Shettlesworth, Olive Branch; Carlie Lester, Winona; Rachel
Bowen, Southaven; and Undreadda Todd, Coldwater; Kieara Glover,
Senatobia; Abby Humes, Captain Melody Shaw and Bayleigh Suiter,
all of Southaven; and Captain Lyndsey Jones, Vardaman.

Carlie Lester, a freshman Pre-Occupational Therapy major from
Winona, explains that being a part of this elite group has been
especially rewarding for her.



"Being a Rangerette has affected my college experience in a very
positive way. My team has become a part of me and I have made
tons of great, lifetime friends," she said.

Lester said that it isn't always easy to make friends in college,
but being a part of the Rangerettes helped her meet new people.

According to Melody Shaw, a sophomore Business Administration
major from Nesbit, being a Rangerette has been an amazing experi-
ence.

"I love each and every one of the girls. They are all my best
friends and I could not ask for better teammates!"

Shaw would like to encourage everyone interested to try out for
the Rangerettes. "It will be the best experience of your life and you
won't regret it!"

Instructors for the Rangerettes are Joy Ross and Aime Anderson.

NORTHWEST'S ENTERTAINERS combined forces with the
Jazz Band for a joint concert Thursday, Nov. 1 1 in the Fine Arts
Auditorium on the Senatobia campus.

The Entertainers are directed by Dr. Saundra Bishop, and
Aime Anderson is choreographer of the group.

"I always look forward to the combined Jazz Band and
Entertainers concert. It's a wonderful opportunity to showcase
two very talented groups of students performing a repertoire
of fun, upbeat music," said Bishop.

The Entertainers performed popular songs from a variety of
eras and genres, according to Bishop, including everything from
Broadway to '40s swing and barbershop to Michael Jackson.
The concert featured selections such as "Chattanooga Choo
Choo," "It's Only a Paper Moon" and "Blue Moon."

"I love being part of this group. There is nothing that feels
as good as being on stage with this amazing group of perform-
ers," said Shannon O'Hara of Olive Branch.

Group abounds with talent, dedication and perserverance

NORTHWEST'S DEDICATED RANGER BAND never fails to keep the crowd thoroughly entertained with its delightful melo-
dies in conjunction with the perfectly synchronized Color Guard and Rangerettes.

The band is usually at the heart of parades, and who has never felt that outrageous excitement at the sound of the
band before the start of a football game?

Individual band members function together like a well-oiled machine to produce their distinct sounds. In addition,
members of the Color Guard and Rangerettes adds visual interest. This blend of sound, rhythm, and perfect timing is the
essence of the marching band's charm. Most band members enter the college with an already established music founda-
tion.

The old adage "practice makes perfect" rings especially true for the band since it starts rehearsing half-time show
activities as early as July each year, practicing both sound and drill. This year's Homecoming half-time show consisted of a
medley of "Queen" songs including "We are the champions" and "Bohemian Rhapsody."

The band is under the direction of John Ungurait and John Mixon.

"Mr. Mixon needs to get the credit for the great band we had this year. He is the man that has made the band so good
and it is his and the students' hard work that is reflected in each performance," said Director of Bands, John Ungurait.

"Our students always need to have high expectations, put forth their best efforts, have fun, and enjoy working with oth-
ers," said Assistant Director of Bands, John Mixon.

According to Mixon, the Northwest Ranger Band practices and plays their hearts out until the end. They are respected
for their work, dedication, and determination.

PLAYERS CLUB HD5T5 5ELDND
BIANNUAL NDRTHWE5T IDOL
LDMPETITIDN

ALL ENCOMPASSING TALENT COMPETITION GAINS POPULARITY



BY TIFFANY MCDANIELS
PHOTOGRAPHY BY TIFFANY MCDANIELS




NORTHWEST HOSTED ITS SECOND BIANNUAL NORTHWEST IDOL
TALENT COMPETITION on March 3 in the Fine Arts Auditorium on
the Senatobia campus.

The event, sponsored by the Players Club, was open to all
students. Auditions were held March 2.

Sophomore general college major Meagan Russell of Abbeville
was crowned the 201 1 Northwest Idol after singing her way into
the crowd's and judges' hearts.

First runners-up were duet singers Emma Wilson and Kelly
Ryan. Brannon Gilliland and Jessa Lugar also performed a duet and
were announced second runners-up.

Students could show off any talent of their choosing such as
singing, dancing, acting, juggling, poetry readings or rapping; even
stand-up comics were welcomed.

According to speech and theatre instructor Sadie Shannon, who
is also the faculty adviser for the Players Club, Northwest Idol is an
all encompassing talent competition.

"We have taken ideas from recent hit shows and created our
own competition. It is judged along the lines of American Idol but as
far as the acts go, all acts are welcomed, kind of like America's Got
Talent," said Shannon.

"This is a fundraiser event for the Players Club to raise money
for our students to attend the Kennedy Center American College
Theatre Festival," added Shannon.

The audience determined if the contestant moved on to the next
round by means of voting. Three judges also decided the contes-
tants' fate.

According to last year's winner, computer networking and
programming major Cannon Moyer, he felt honored to have won the
title as 201 Northwest Idol and was glad for the opportunity to
perform and share his talent.

"I was thankful for the opportunity to sing and play the piano," said Moyer.
Moyer made a guest appearance at the March 3 finals and delivered a special performance

RANGERS GARNER
ACCOLADES AFTER
9-1 SEASON



UNDER THE GUIDANCE OF 2010 MACJC
NORTH DIVISION COACH OF THE YEAR RICKY
WOODS, who called this season "one of the
finest coaching accomplishments of his ca-
reer," Northwest enjoyed its first undefeated
regular season in a decade while claiming
their 1 1th division title and first since 2006.
Led by the state's stingiest defense (12.4
points per game) behind first-year defensive
coordinator Andy Greening, the Rangers
held opponents to just six touchdowns in
the last six games and racked up 23 total
sacks. Northwest's defense also finished
the regular season first in rushing defense
(99.6 yards per game) and third in total
defense (283.0 ypg) and turnover margin
+7).

Sophomore linebacker Sam Small of
Winona, who was named the 2010 North-
west Alumni Association Player of the Year,
finished the season with a team-high 91
tackles, five interceptions and 1 2 passes
defended (1 1th nationally), whereas Re-
naldo Buck of Sarah and Jamontay Pilson
of Greenville, Ala., combined for 20
tackles-for-loss and 1 of the Rang-
ers' 23 sacks. As a team, the Rangers
picked off 1 5 passes (second in
the state) and broke up 38 more.
Offensively, Northwest finished the
year with the nation's 9th-ranked
total offense at 41 3.6 yards-per-game
and was also 12th in rushing (206 ypg). In
addition, the Rangers' 30.6 ppg was third in
the state, scoring a season-high 41 points
in an early-season victory over East Central.

Behind the leadership of freshman
quarterback Brent Osborn of Valley, Ala.,
who threw for 2,01 4 yards, 1 8 touchdowns
and completed 61 .4 percent of his passes,
the Rangers rolled over the 500-yard mark
twice and continued to impress under third-
year offensive coordinator Jack Wright.

The dominant rushing duo of freshman
Jay Jones of Horn Lake and sophomore
Calvin Malone of Southaven, who combined
for 1 ,572 yards and 1 3 touchdowns, also
surpassed the 200-yard plateau on six dif-
ferent occasions.

Sophomore wide receiver Myles White
of Detroit, Mich., a Louisiana Tech commit,
finished ranked sixth in the nation with 53
receptions for a team-high 712 yards and
six touchdowns and was a huge spark on
the Ranger offense with four 1 00-yard
games. Three other Rangers also hauled in
25 or more receptions.

After ending a successful season with a record of 9-1 , ten Northwest players received post-season honors. Of the ten, eight of these
were first team All-State selections. On offense, wide receiver Myles White, offensive lineman Courtney Easterwood, offensive lineman
Jonathan Hardin, tight end Jamal Mosley and punter/placekicker Kevin Buford claimed first team honors. First team defense went to defen-
sive lineman Jamontay Pilson, linebacker Sam Small and defensive back Brandon Lawrence. Not only did Small and Pilson take first team
honors, they also took top honors in the north by being named the MVP's of their respective positions. Second team All-State honors went
to quarterback Brent Osborn and defensive Michael McKinney.





SOPHOMORE LINEBACKER SAM SMALL FROM WINONA was named the 2010 Northwest Alumni Association Player of the
Year as presented at halftime of the Rangers' final game of the regular season on Thursday, Oct. 28 at Bobby Franklin Field.

The award is usually presented to a basketball player but was extended this season to the football field. The North-
west Alumni Association Player of the Year award is not just for the student who is great in competition, but also presents
themselves well in the classroom and around their peers and teammates. Small led the team and wasl 1 th nationally in passes
defended (12), 31st nationally in tackles (83) and also has 2.5 sacks, a forced fumble and fumble recovery. He anchored a
Northwest defense that led the MACJC in scoring defense (12.4 ppg) and ranked fourth in total defense (283.0 ypg).

SOCCER SQUAD BATTLE OPPONENTS, INJURIES



WRITTEN BY THE ROCKETEER STAFF
PHOTOS BY THE ROCKETEER STAFF



BATTLING INJURIES ALL SEASON LONG on both squads under ninth-
year head coach Peter Jarjoura, the Northwest men's soccer team
closed their 2010 season with a 4-10 record (2-6 MACIC North), while
the women concluded their season at 3-9-1 (2-5-1 North).

Coming off consecutive North Division runner-up finishes, the men
suffered six one-goal losses on the year — including three in their last
four matches — and were left out of the state playoffs for the first time
since 2007.

Led by freshman Dylan Castoria of Olive Branch with a team-leading
eight goals in 10 games, Northwest averaged 1.71 goals per game
and finished the year with 24 total. Fellow freshman Fakhry Khulfan of
Memphis added five goals and an assist, while sophomore Joel Burgos
of Southaven had a team-leading five assists in addition to three goals.
Brandon Bishop of Horn Lake (1.98 GAA, 34 saves) and Matt Bernar-
dini of Olive Branch (2.87 GAA, 22 saves) split time in the net during
the course of the season, with Bishop earning all three wins and
posting one shutout.

On the women's side, the Lady Rangers closed the year on a high
note with a 2-1 road win at East Central thanks to a pair of goals from
outgoing sophomore Ginny Gully of Hernando.

Goals were hard to come by for Northwest all season, scoring just
1 2 in 1 2 contests. The Lady Rangers were led by Gully with five, Katie
Fox of Collierville, Tenn., with three and Delancey Fortin of Southaven
with two. Amanda King of Hernando and Erica Herron of Southaven
each added one.

Sophomore Min Kandies of Cleveland, playing her first season in goal
for the Lady Rangers, did an adequate job by stopping 72 shots (43rd
nationally) and posting a .626 save percentage.

Three players were selected MACJC All-State. In addition to Lady
Rangers Fox and Kandies, Rosendo Barron of Southaven was selected
from the men's team.

FRESHMAN DEFENDER Rosendo Barron from the Northwest men's soccer team and sophomore
goalkeeper Min Kandies and fellow sophomore midfielder/ defender Katie Fox from the women's team
were each named Z010 MACJC All-State as announced by the league office.

Barron was the Rangers'most consistent defender on the year, helping the team to a pair of shutouts
against East Central and Copiah-Lincoln.

Kandies ranked in the Top 60 nationally with 72 saves on the year, including a career-high 1 3 at
Jones County and 1 1 against Hinds, to go along with a .626 saves percentage and 3.52 GAA.

Fox was second on the team in scoring with three goals, including the gamewinner at Holmes in a
3-2 victory. She finished with a .474 SOG percentage in 12 games played.

AFTER A SLOW START TO THE SEASON, the Northwest Lady
Ranger basketball team closed the year winning five of their last
nine games to finish at 9-1 2 overall and 5-6 in MACJC North Divi-
sion play.

Northwest closed the year in style, winning its regular season
finale 74-70 over Mississippi Delta, but fell a game shy of making
the state tournament field in the north division. The Lady Rangers
were 6-4 at home but just 3-7 on the road, their first losing record
away from Senatobia since the 2007-08 season.

The 2010-1 1 season, however, was highlighted by a 68-66
overtime upset of eventual state champion and 4th-ranked Copiah-
Lincoln on Nov. 1 8 at Howard Coliseum - one of only two regular
season losses for the Lady Wolves. Freshman Sherneal Thompson
of Abbeville hit the game-tying and game-winning 3-pointer as she
came off the bench the final 10 minutes and scored 12 points,
while sophomore Sandricka Bowen of Holly Springs also had her
first career double-double with 10 points and 1 1 rebounds in the
win.

Northwest boasted two MACJC All-State selections at season's
end, with guard Lanita Futrell of Coldwater earning First Team hon-
ors and forward Dequashia Simpson of Milan, Tenn., being named
to the Second Team.

Futrell played and started in all 21 games on the year, averag-
ing 10.1 ppg, a nation-leading 7.6 apg, 4.7 spg and 4.4 rpg. Her
three double-doubles were tied for the team lead with Simpson,
also boasting three games with 10 assists. She finished with 1 59
assists and 99 steals, both team-highs, ranking in the Top 10 in
the NJCAA in both categories.

Simpson played and started in all 21 games as well, averaging
9.2 ppg and a team-best 8.1 rpg. She pulled down a team-high 58
offensive rebounds, boasted three double-doubles and closed the
year with seven consecutive games in double figures.

LED BY SECOND-YEAR HEAD COACH JIMMY ADAMS, the Northwest men's basketball team
wrapped up the 2010-1 1 season at 9-1 3 overall and 3-8 in MACJC North Division play.

Northwest lost seven games by five points or less, with all but one of those coming
on the road. Similar to the women, the Ranger men posted a 6-4 record at home, but
struggled on the road going just 3-8.

With expectations high entering the season and the Rangers off to a 5-3 start through
the first month of the year, a pair of five-game losing streaks sandwiched between a
season-long four-game win streak, ended the season a lot sooner than anticipated with
Northwest missing out on the state playoffs for a fourth consecutive year.

Freshman forward and MACJC First Team All-State selection A.J. Cunningham of Memphis
emerged as the Rangers' top contributor, leading the team in both scoring (1 5.3 ppg) and
rebounding (5.9 rpg) while posting a team-high five double-doubles. The frosh scored in
double figures in all but four games and posted five, 20-point games, including a career-
high 28 points in an 89-87 road loss at Coahoma. He also became the first Ranger in
several years to garner NJCAA Division I Men's Basketball Player of the Week honors for
games played Sunday, Jan. 1 7 through Monday, Jan. 23.

Sophomore Reggie Fondren of Memphis, who committed to the University of Arkansas-
Little Rock during the year, was second on the team in scoring (1 3.0 ppg) and third in
rebounding (5.2 rpg), while leading the team in both assists (84) and steals (49).

Thanks to sophomore leadership and key contributions from freshmen late, the Rangers
finished the season shooting a solid 42 percent from the floor and out-rebounded their
opponent in 14 of 22 games.

RANGERS ENJOY FOURTH CONSECUTIVE 25-WIN SEASON IN 2010



WRITTEN BY THE ROCKETEER STAFF
PHOTOS BY CHRIS CREASY



FIFTH-YEAR HEAD COACH MARK CARSON and the Northwest Ranger baseball
team enjoyed a fourth consecutive 25-win season in 2010, finishing the year with
a 27-24 overall ledger and 14-10 mark in MACJC North Division play.

The Rangers opened the year with nine straight home games, winning the
first four before dropping the final five for an early 4-5 record. Northwest,
however, would turn things around to wrap up an early non-conference slate,
winning 10 of its next 12 to push their overall record out to 14-7 heading into
league play against Northeast.

A steady pitching rotation saw eight different players pick up a win on the
mound at the midway point in the season, led by Mark Husband of Tunica and
Matt Shaw of Oxford who each sported 3-1 records.

HEAD BASEBALL COACH
MARK CARSON

Mark Carson completed his fifth season as head coach of the Rangers in 2010. A 1989 graduate of Northwest, Carson has compiled a record of
1 14-85-2 in his four seasons, including a 48-23 mark against opponents from the MACJC north division. Carson led the 2007 Ranger squad to its third
appearance in the NJCAA World Series. Northwest, which also claimed the MACJC north division and Region XXIII championships in 2007, placed fourth
at the World Series, while Carson was named Region XXIII Coach of the Year. Carson was an NJCAA Academic Ail-American at Northwest and at the
University of Southern Mississippi where he played for two seasons.

ASSISTANT COACH
BILL SELBY

Bill Selby joined the Ranger coaching staff as assistant baseball coach in 2006. During Selby's five seasons at Northwest, the Rangers have amassed
a record of 1 1 4-85-2 and are 48-23 in the MACJC north division. Selby helped lead the 2007 Northwest squad to a fourth-place finish at the NJCAA
World Series. Selby played at Northwest in 1990 and led the team in home runs before transferring to the University of Southern Mississippi where he
was a teammate of Ranger Head Coach Mark Carson. Selby was drafted by the Boston Red Sox in 1 992 which began a 1 4-year career in professional
baseball. Selby also played for several other organizations including the Cleveland Indians, Cincinnati Reds., St. Louis Cardinals, and Chicago Cubs.

Northwest opened league play with a fast, 1 0-3 start, winning doubleheaders over
Northeast, Mississippi Delta, East Mississippi and Coahoma to own a one-game lead in
the MAGC North over 1 0-4 Itawamba. But things quickly changed directions for the
Rangers as they dropped 5 of 6, including three of those at home, and found
themselves in fourth place at 1 1-8 in division play.

The Rangers would split doubleheaders at East Mississippi and Coahoma
to close league play at 1 4-1 0, earning a disappointing fourth place fini
after a hot start. The No. 4 seed out of the north, Northwest was
swept in the opening round of the MACJC Playoffs at Jones County
on May 7-8, falling 12-1 and 8-0.

Northwest ended the season with 27 wins for a second con-
secutive year, finishing at 27-22 overall.

Freshman Chad Wardlaw (opposite page) led the Rangers from
the plate, batting at a .354 clip with a team-best 51 hits, three
triples and .454 on-base percentage. Wardlaw was also in the
national spotlight by successfully stealing 29 of 30 bases, while as a
team Northwest grabbed 89 percent of its attempts (81 of 91 ). Four
other everyday starters also batted over .300, including Tyler Benson
(.327), Seth Milliorn (.321 ), Drew Griffin (.315) and Joel Rich (.306). Milliorn
also led the team in RBIs (33) and doubles (11) while sporting a solid .436
on-base percentage.

On the mound, Husband led the way with a 7-2 record and 3.30 ERA in 1 2
appearances, while Shaw went 6-5 with a 4.27 ERA in 14 appearances. Fresh-
man Tarus Hervey also sported a 4-2 record in 1 1 appearances (seven starts), ,
along with a team-best 2.98 ERA and 53 strikeouts.

DY RANGERS STAY ON TRACK DESPITE RAINY WEATHER







THE LADY RANGER SOFTBALL TEAM had a busy 2010 spring playing catch up
after rainy weather postponed several games in March. The team managed to stay on
track, however, posting a winning record of 25-1 3 heading into the final games of the
regular season.

The Lady Rangers finished the spring with an overall record of 32-1 5 and placed
third in the MACJC North Division with a 16-8 mark.

Despite its winning record and third place in the North Division standings, North-
west dropped a doubleheader to Holmes by scores of 2-1 and 6-5 April 1 2 in Good-
man. The losses marked the first time in school history that the Lady Rangers were
swept by the Holmes Lady Bulldogs. Holmes claimed a 1-0 lead in the opening contest,
but Northwest tied the game when sophomore catcher Casi Brooks of Pope singled
home freshman Candice Brasher of Hernando. The Lady Bulldogs scored the winning
run with two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning.

Brooks and Brasher led the Lady Rangers with two hits each. Brasher was the
losing pitcher and moved her record to 3-6. Northwest out-hit Holmes 1 3-10 in the
second game, but the Lady Bulldogs rallied once again by scoring the winning run in
the bottom of the eighth frame. The Lady Rangers trailed 5-3 after five innings, but
tied the contest at 5-5 in the sixth on a two-run single by Brasher. Brasher was also
the losing pitcher in the second game.

Northwest sophomore second baseman Haylei Plummer of Pope and freshman out-



fielder Kayla Wilson of Horn Lake led the way with
three each, while freshman third baseman Lauren
Kendall of Boyle had two.

The Lady Rangers flexed some offensive
muscle and pounded the Coahoma Lady Tigers in a
doubleheader April 9 in Clarksdale. Northwest won
by scores of 1 9-4 and 1 6-0. The Lady Rangers
racked up 27 hits, including nine
for extra bases, in the pair of games at Coahoma.

Pitcher Brasher earned the win for Northwest
and improved her record to 3-5. Northwest's
bats stayed hot in the second game as well as
the Lady Rangers totaled 14 hits. Kendall and
Plummer led the way with three hits each,
while sophomore Leigh Tedford of Southaven
added two. Kendall went three-for-four with
a pair of doubles and five RBI and scored three runs. Brasher
and Tedford collected three RBIs each. Northwest jumped to
a 4-0 lead after three innings before exploding for 1 2 runs in
the fourth frame.

Freshman Candice Brasher picked
up two hits and two RBIs to help the
Lady Rangers defeat the Northeast
Lady Tigers 7-1 and salvage a
doubleheader split April 1 in Boonev-
ille.

Northwest's victory came after
Northeast claimed the opening game
of the twin bill 7-6. Brasher went
two-for-three at the plate in the
second game. Northwest sophomores
Ciara Small of Horn Lake and Angela
Carden of Southaven also added two
hits each. The Lady Rangers were
also able to capitalize on five Lady
Tiger errors.

Brasher was the winning pitcher
for the Lady Rangers by throwing
the final 4.2 innings and allowing just
three hits. Brasher evened her record
at 3-3.

Small and Plummer collected three
hits each to combine for six of North-
west's seven total hits in the game.
Pitcher Kendall was shouldered with
the loss.

Sophomore second baseman Haylei Plummer of Pope was named All-Region XXIII and first team MACK All-State. Plummer, who was
also voted MACJC North Division Best Offensive Player, led Northwest in almost every offensive category this season including batting
average (.435), hits (57), runs scored (38), and at-bats (131). Plummer was a second team All-State selection as a freshman for the
Lady Rangers.

Joining Plummer on this year's All-State list was freshman infielder/ pitcher Candice Brasher of Hernando. Brasher batted .391 with
a team-leading 40 RBIs. Brasher also led Northwest with five home runs and 10 doubles.

Sophomores Mandy Bolden and Angela Carden were both chosen first team All-North Division. Shortstop Bolden batted .292 with
seven doubles and 12 RBIs, while first baseman Carden hit .324 six doubles and 23 RBIs.
Northwest sophomore outfielder Ciara Small of Horn Lake was a second team All-Division selection, while sophomore catcher Casi

Brooks of Pope was an honorable mention choice.

COACH LEE PLEASED WITH TEAM'S
OVERALL PERFORMANCE






WRITTEN BY THE ROCKETEER STAFF
PHOTOS BY CHRIS CREASY & JUSTIN



THE NORTHWEST RODEO TEAM WRAPPED UP THE 2010 SEASON with the
final rodeo of the year at the University of Arkansas at Monticello on April 22-
24,2010.

It was a busy year for Coach Bruce Lee who took the reins in August.

"Overall I was pleased with our performance. I am excited about next year's
potential with returning and new students," said Lee.

"We had a couple of bull riders hampered with injuries this spring which
hurt our chances. However, Callie Alexander really turned her season around
by qualifying for the championship round in the barrel racing at the first four
rodeos of the season and narrowly missing her opportunity at our final
rodeo in Monticello."

Cody Skelton made great strides in the second half of our season as well
by placing several times in the calf roping, finishing 1 2th in the region. Brian
Dowdy finished the year 7th in bull riding in the region. Brian was unfortunately
plagued with injuries last spring, not the least of which was a broken bone in
his riding hand.

"While we were hopeful for a speedy recovery, the nature of this particular
injury extended his recovery time into the fall semester," said Lee.

Lee was happy with the college rodeo hosted at the Northwest Farm in
March, 201 0. "As I visit other campuses that host NIRA rodeos, I don't see a
lot of other programs that enjoy the luxury that we have here of help and sup-
port for their rodeo programs," said Lee.

"I was overwhelmed by the alumni, college staff and local folks who came
out and helped us put on our intercollegiate rodeo. With over 200 contestants
in town for three performances, my job was made so
much easier by the assistance and time that
people gave to ensure a successful event.
We received many many compliments from
coaches and contestants about the caliber
and quality of rodeo that was pro-
duced," he said.

FOR THE SECOND YEAR IN A ROW, when Northwest hosted a three-day intercol-
legiate rodeo, the first day brought threatening thundershowers and muddy conditions.
Despite the bad spring weather on Thursday and Saturday, new Rodeo Coach, Bruce Lee,
remained excited about the outcome of the event.

"I'm proud of our athletes. They represented the college well. Overall, I'm thrilled
with this rodeo. The attendance was up for all performances, and our sponsors were
pleased," said Lee.

Calf Roper Cody Skelton of Holly Springs scored a 10.9 his first night, 1 3.1 in the
second round for a 24.0 in the average. This score earned him a third place in the event
and a ninth place in Ozark Region standings.

Bull riders representing Northwest were Brian Dowdy of Pontotoc, Shane Campbell
and Lucas Boatwright, both of Olive Branch. While none of the Northwest cowboys
placed in the short round, Dowdy is currently seventh in regional standings.

"Brian sustained a hand injury while he was still loaded in the chute on Friday night,"
said Lee. "That injury cost him about 10 stitches."

Ashley Williams of Newton ran out of luck in the barrel racing and breakaway roping
categories. Teammate Callie Alexander of Yazoo City made a qualified run in the long go
but did not score in the finals.

BEHIND TWO-TIME MACJC COACH OF THE YEAR DON EDWARDS and
volunteer assistant Guy Purdy, the Northwest men's golf team had a
solid 2010 season.

The Rangers placed in the Top 6 in all six events they played in,
highlighted by a runner-up finish at the Mississippi Gulf Coast Invita-
tional to kickoff the season in which they lost out by just two strokes to
the Bulldogs.

Northwest would go on to finish fourth at the MACJC State Tourna-
ment April 1 2-1 3 in Raymond, shooting a two-day score of 61 6. The
Rangers fired a 301 on day one, followed by a 31 S on day two.

Sophomore Grant Goforth's (below) fourth place overall finish
earned him a spot on All-State Second Team, while Ryan Williams
finished 16th with a 75-77 (1 52). Richard Howell placed 19th with a
72-81 (1 53), Garrett Tidwell carded a 42nd place finish with a 78-86
(1 64) and Hewston Vancil closed it out with a 52nd place finish after
scoring an 84-89 (173).

Two weeks later, the Rangers finished third at the Region XXIII Tour-
nament with a two-day score of 624 (305-31 9) to finish 31 strokes
behind state and region champion Gulf Coast.

Tidwell's seventh place finish at the region tournament earned him
a spot at the NJCAA National Tournament, the eighth Ranger golfer in
1 1 seasons to represent Northwest. The freshman
would go on to finish in 38th place
after carding a 1 4-over-par 302.
The Top 40 finish was the second
in three years for a Ranger golfer,
with I Robert Oakley finishing 25th
in 2008.

Northwest is poised to compete
for a Region XXIII championship
this year, claiming its last title in
2005.

BUILDING ON A TRADITION OF EXCELLENCE



PROUD OF OUR RANGER



ATHLETES. THEY BRING



SUCH POSITIVE RECOG-



NITION TO THE COL-



LEGE. THE WORK OUR



COACHES, ATHLETIC
DIRECTOR AND ATH-



LETES PUT INTO THEIR



PROGRAMS IS UNBE-
LIEVABLE, AND THEIR



TIME AND EFFORTS



HAVE TRULY PAID OFF.



DR. GARY LEE SPEARS



AN UNPRECEDENTED ENROLLMENT GROWTH— a 22
percent increase over a two-year period to be precise —
might make some college presidents a little nervous, but
Northwest President, Dr. Gary Lee Spears, couldn't be hap-
pier or feel more prepared to serve the growing number of
students taking advantage of a Northwest education.

"Our Building on Tradition capital building campaign
was designed to provide bigger and better facilities for our
growing student body," said Dr. Spears.

In 2010, the college celebrated the opening of the
Physical Science Building Addition, the Marilyn R. Spears
Building for the Early Childhood Education Technology pro-
gram, both on the Senatobia campus, and a new addition
to the Lafayette-Yalobusha Technical Center to house their
growing Cosmetology program. This school year ushered
in the opening of the new Division of Nursing Building and
the Outdoor Intramural Sports Complex while the college
embarked upon the largest renovation project in its his-
tory — the McLendon Student Union.

The renovation is set to include construction of a
second multi-purpose gymnasium to expand physical
education, recreational and intramural offerings; two
aerobic/dance facilities; meeting rooms for student clubs
and organizations; an expanded bookstore; an open
student computer lab with more than 80 terminals; new
and expanded space for Student Support Services and
the Math Support Lab; a new and expanded weight room
for Athletics and an upgrade of the current gym for all
students; and space for Central Duplicating and Campus
Police relocation to the Union to improve convenience and
safety for students.

Plans are also in the works for a new facility to house
Tool and Die Technology and Heating, Air Conditioning and
Refrigeration Technology, freeing up space to accom-
modate more career-technical students in the current
classroom space.

Although the growing number of students enrolling at
Northwest each semester is certainly an accomplishment



of which to be proud, Dr. Spears admits he is even more
thrilled with the growing number of students graduat-
ing each year. According to Spears, the college's latest
institutional research indicates a five percent increase in
the graduation rate.

Beyond attracting and producing more Northwest
educated students, Spears recognized the importance
of the college's contribution to its district and the state
through Workforce Development, the WIN Job Center and
Adult Basic Education.

"We are providing area industries the classes their
employees need to stay on the cutting edge of technol-
ogy and safety," said Spears. "We offer the classes and
training our constituencies need to improve their earning
potential and quality of life."

From fall 2009 to fall 2010, Northwest Workforce
Development developed 61 training projects with local
companies and completed an advanced manufacturing
lab equipped as a smart classroom, while the WIN Job
Center provided nearly 70,000 services to area individuals
in search of career resources and training. Adult Basic
Education was proud to administer more than 1 ,000 GED
examinations and enroll 1 ,604 GED graduates in North-
west programs.

To top off the successful year Northwest had in its class-
rooms, Spears celebrated the amazing year the college had
on both the field and the court. The MACJC North Division
champion Northwest Ranger football team capped a stellar
season with a No. 6 final ranking in the last NJCAA Top 20
Football Poll of the season, marking their first Top 1 finish
since the 1999 season.

"I couldn't be more proud of our Ranger athletes," said
Spears. "They bring such positive recognition to the college.
The work our coaches, athletic director and athletes put into
their programs is unbelievable, and their time and efforts
have truly paid off."

ENDLI5H INSTRUCTOR WIN5
TYCAM DVID VICKER5 AWARD

SMITH RECOGNIZED FOR OUTSTANDING DEDICATION



G-



ENGLISH INSTRUCTOR ANNE SMITH was
named this year's winner of the Ovid Vickers
Award at the annual conference of the Two-
Year College English Association of Mississippi
(TYCAM), which was held Sept. 24 at Hinds Com-
munity College - Raymond.

The Vickers Award is TYCAM's highest
honor and recognizes the outstanding dedication
to teaching by a full-time English instructor at
one of Mississippi's community colleges.

"Anne's commitment to her students, the
Languages and Communications Division and to
the college makes her a worthy recipient of this

< >



prestigious award," said Languages and Com-
munications Division Director Dale Davis.

According to Smith, words cannot express
how surprised and honored she was to be
named the winner.

"What means the most to me is that I was
nominated by my colleagues here at Northwest.
They kept the whole process a secret so that
when the winner was announced at our annual
meeting, I had no idea that the presenter was
talking about me. I feel that the award is re-
ally for the whole division, since every English
teacher at Northwest is excellent," she said.

PAYNE MEAN5 BU5INE55

DIVISION DIRECTOR BRIDGES GENERATIONS



AMY PAYNE, DIVISION OF BUSINESS DIRECTOR at
Northwest, can tell you about the exceptional academic
experience offered at Northwest from a personal and
professional standpoint as both a faculty administrator
and graduate.

As Division director, Payne supervises the business
degree programs for the college and looks for new
course and degree offerings, like the new marketing
communications major added this academic year. ,

"I have made it my mission to educate students on
the versatility of a degree in business and promote
course work in business," said Payne.

"Even if a student is not wishing to major in business
it is beneficial for every student to have at least one
business elective. Accounting, economics, computers,
and the legal environment of business are subjects that
enter into all facets of life and careers, whether you are
a preacher, school administrator or even a stay-at-home
parent."

Having graduated in business education from North-
west in 1996, Payne completed her bachelor's of sci-
ence in business and computer education at Delta State
University in 1998. Before her promotion to director in
2008, Payne earned her master's degree in instruc-
tional technology from Mississippi State University while
she taught middle and high school computer courses
and taught adjunct at Northwest. "When

a former teacher of mine and boss at the time, Russell
Lott retired, I was encouraged to pursue the position
of director. It is so rewarding to work with people who



want the best for you and want to see you advance
personally and professionally. Through the encourage-
ment of others, I am currently pursuing a Ph.D. through
the University of Southern Mississippi in Instructional
Technology and Design. The encouragement I received
to grow personally and professionally as a student
definitely spills into my everyday responsibilities to the
students at Northwest.

"Northwest helped me grow personally and profes-
sionally and continues to do so every day," said Payne.

"It was a unique experience when I began my
teaching career at Northwest, because I was working
alongside teachers who had once taught me in the
classroom. I cannot describe the invaluable experi-
ence it was for me and how much I learned from them.
They pushed me to continuously advance myself and
mentored me."

Payne described the vast scholarship opportunities,
involvement in the professional business organiza-
tion Phi Beta Lambda, small class sizes and intimate
relationships between faculty and students as some of
the most important assets she found at Northwest and
now shares with the students she educates today.

Beyond these practical advantages, Payne explained
Northwest's knack for helping students find their
"place" in the collegiate setting. "It gave me the op-
portunity to find that 'fit' that I hope all students at
Northwest will find while they are here — the feeling
that you get when you know you are in the field that is
right for you."

NDRTHWE5T ART GRADUATE
JDIN5 SIGNATURE ADVERTISING

HARTHCOCK RECOGNIZES NORTHWEST ART PROGRAM
IN HER SUCCESS



BY THE ROCKETEER STAFF
PHOTOGRAPHY BY THE ROCKETEER STAFF



NORTHWEST GRADUATE LAURA HARTHCOCK OF SENATOBIA recently
joined the full-time ranks at the award winning, Memphis-based Signa-
ture Advertising and Marketing Solutions.

Currently serving the firm as their Junior Art Director, Harthcock
worked as a summer intern for Signature as she completed her
Bachelor of Fine Arts in graphic design at Delta State University in the
spring of 2010.

"My co-workers and I handle the designs and layouts for all of the
print work the company does," said Harthcock. "Some of our major
clients include FedEx, Hilton and Morgan Keegan, just to name a few."

Harthcock was attracted to Signature because of their breadth
of service, which includes web and mobile site design, multimedia
services, multi-platform advertisement, posters and complete market-
ing communications campaigns. "I wanted to work in an environment
that allows me to work in multiple forms of design," said Harthcock.
"Specifically, a place where I wasn't just working on a newspaper or a
magazine. I want to learn as much as I can and not limit myself."

The young designer credits her Northwest education and the atten-
tion from their outstanding art faculty for much of her academic and
professional success and in helping her hone the creativity integral to
her work at Signature. "Northwest has a fantastic art program, and I
highly recommend it to anyone seeking a graphic design career," said
Harthcock.

"I am really glad I went to Northwest before I went to a four-year
university. I was able to complete my general education courses in
smaller class sizes with a more flexible schedule and one-on-one time
with the professors. I was able to focus more of my time and energy on
my major once I moved on to a four-year school," said Harthcock.

After transferring to Delta State, Harthcock recognized she was
as far as two semesters ahead of many fellow classmates in graphic
design skills and concepts, having been prepared with practical experi-
ence on industry-standard technology at Northwest. "Some were just
learning how to use a Mac, and I already knew how to design a full ad,"
said Harthcock. "My Northwest teachers worked closely with me and made sure I was well pre-
pared."

The Northwest Art Department offers a two-year program of foundation courses in Drawing, De-
sign, Painting, Pottery, and Advertising/Graphic Design, along with Art History for individuals seeking
opportunities for a career in the arts or for personal enrichment.

The department is awarding full-tuition scholarships open to all 201 1 graduating high school
seniors and any individual who would like to pursue a creative career in the visual art at Northwest.
Dates for turning in portfolios are March 1-3 or 7-9. All portfolios should be delivered to Art Depart
ment Chair, Lawayne House, in Room 201 in the Art Building on the Senatobia campus.

For more information about Art at Northwest and details about portfolio submission, contact
House at (662) 562-3399 or lhouse@northwestms.edu.

STUDENTS CREDIT NORTHWEST WITH SUCCESS

EXPRESSION HAS ALWAYS been a way of life for two Northwest art students who were recently
awarded scholarships to Memphis College of Art. Jennifer McClish of Olive Branch and Austin,
Texas, and John Pennington of Southaven credit Northwest for giving them the opportunity to grow
creatively and as individuals.

"I wouldn't be the artist I am today without Northwest. My classes have allowed me to challenge
myself and discover my passion for painting. Art is like a sport —
the more you practice, the better you become at it," said McClish.

McClish's scholarship of $46,000 was awarded to her after a
portfolio review at MCA. Her scholarship will be distributed over
a four-year period. McClish plans to get a bachelor's degree and
a master's degree from MCA or the University of Memphis. After
college, she wants to be an art teacher or work in a museum.

"I was really excited when I got the news about my scholarship,
because MCA was where I wanted to transfer. I wouldn't have been
able to afford the tuition without the scholarship," said McClish.

Pennington's scholarship of $42,000 was awarded to him after
having his portfolio reviewed during National Portfolio Day at MCA.
His scholarship will be distributed over a four-year period. Penning-
ton plans to get a bachelor's degree in art, but remains uncertain
about his area of concentration.

"At Northwest, I have taken painting and graphic design classes.
I enjoy graphic design and would like to someday work profession-
ally as a graphic designer or artist," said Pennington.

Pennington has learned many different skills and techniques
while at Northwest, which he believes helped him get the scholar-
ship to MCA. "It was a relief and a surprise when I received the
scholarship. My family is very proud of me," he said.

Northwest Art Department Chair, Lawayne House, said, "Jennifer
and John are outstanding young artists who both approach their studies and the development of
their creative abilities with the drive and tenacity it takes to succeed. The Northwest Art faculty is
pleased to have had these two individuals as students. We expect to see great things from these two
exceptional artists in the future."

TWIN CREEK5 TECHNOLOGIES
E5TABLI5HE5 MANOFACTURINO
PLANT IN 5ENAT0BIA

NORTHWEST PLAYS KEY ROLE IN DECISION



BY THE ROCKETEER STAFF

PHOTOGRAPHY BY

THE ROCKETEER STAFF



WHILE MOST OF THE NORTHWEST employees and students were on Easter Break on Friday, April 2,
2010 a major announcement for Senatobia and Tate County was being made in the Haraway Center on
the Senatobia campus. Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour announced before a standing-room only crowd
the news that Twin Creeks Technologies would locate a solar panel manufacturing plant in Senatobia,
creating more than 500 jobs over the next five years.

Company Chairman and CEO, Dr. Siva Sivaram, told the crowd that Northwest played a part in their
decision to locate in this area. "When we came looking at sites, we looked at several states and even
international sites, but it was the business climate and the people in the infrastructure that made us
choose Senatobia. Through Northwest, we will be able to identify potential candidates for skilled labor-
ers and unskilled workers early on so we can train them."

Northwest President, Dr. Gary Lee Spears, welcomed the digni-
taries to the campus and opened the program. On the program for
the announcement were Dennis Cuneo, strategic business adviser;
representatives from Twin Creeks Technologies; former Congress-
man Travis Childers; Senatobia Mayor Alan Callicott; Janie Mortimer,
executive director of the Tate County Economic Development Foun-
dation; and Dr. Daniel Jones, University of Mississippi chancellor.

Also on the stage were Gray Swoope, executive director of the
Mississippi Development Authority; and Haley Fisackerly, president
and CEO of Entergy Mississippi, Inc.

According to Sivaram the plant is expected to be complete in
201 5. Twin Creeks, which was founded in 2008, has its own propri-
etary solar panel manufacturing technology, which will be used to
make the panels in Mississippi. The process, according to a
company statement, lowers the cost of production of solar panels.

Sivaram also announced the establishment of two scholarships
by his company — one to benefit students at Northwest; and one
for engineering students at The University of Mississippi.

Northwest sophomore pre-engineering majors, Melissa DiFil-
lippo and Chris Shackleford, both of Southaven were awarded
full-tuition scholarships to Northwest by Twin Creeks Technologies
founder and CEO, Dr. Siva Sivaram. Each student submitted a 500-
word essay about the importance of alternative energy sources and maintained a minimum 3.8 grade
point average — all criteria necessary to be considered for the Twin Creeks Technologies Scholarship.
Forty Northwest students were eligible to apply for the scholarship.

"I feel privileged to be selected out of so many applicants," said DiFillippo. She was a member of
the Rangerettes dance team last year and is currently a member of Phi Theta Kappa honor society
and the Memphis Grizzlies dance team.

"I am very grateful. This scholarship will help me financially," said Shackleford, also a member of
Phi Theta Kappa.

E+E ENDOWED 5EHDLAR5HIP
REACHES $1 MILLION MARK

FUNDRAISING MILESTONE MADE POSSIBLE BY RECENT
GIFT TO SCHOLARSHIP



BY THE ROCKETEER STAFF
PHOTOGRAPH BY THE ROCKETEER STAFF



THE 2+2 ENDOWED SCHOLARSHIP awarded to students from DeSoto County who wish to attend
the DeSoto Center campus for all four years — two years with Northwest Mississippi Community Col-
lege and two years with The University of Mississippi-has reached
its $1 million level. At the Northwest Foundation Board of Directors
meeting on Nov. 1 8, Northwest President, Dr. Gary Lee Spears,
joined Associate Vice President for Development, Sybil Canon, in
announcing this fundraising milestone, made possible by the most
recent $1 12,000 gift to the scholarship initiative from the estate of
Elinor Herrington, mother of current member and former president
of the Northwest Foundation Board of Directors, Mike Herrington
of Olive Branch.

University of Mississippi Chancellor Emeritus, Dr. Robert Khayat,
joined the Foundation Board as a special guest to congratulate
them on their fundraising partnership's success and offered words
of encouragement and guidance to continue their efforts. "This
type of scholarship is unique, outstanding and trailblazing — to
combine the fundraising efforts of a four-year and community col-
lege," said Khayat.

This endowed scholarship — the brainchild of Canon; University
of Mississippi Vice Chancellor Emerita for University Relations, Dr.
Gloria Kellum; and University of Mississippi DeSoto Center Dean,
Dr. Bonnie Buntin — now totals $1.1 million from contributions
made by the Maddox Foundation; the Cities of Southaven, Olive
Branch and Hernando; BancorpSouth; DeSoto County banks First
Tennessee, Merchants and Farmers, First Security, Community,
BankPlus, Trustmark, Sycamore and Renasant; Kreunen Development

Company; Shannon Lumber Company; FedEx; the DeSoto Economic Development Council; and nume
ous individual donors devoted to the idea of making a four-year degree available to DeSoto
County residents in their own community.

"I am grateful to all of the members of the Northwest family who have made this scholarship
what it is today," said Dr. Spears. "So much hard work and dedication from our administration and
friends of the college came together to make all of this possible."

Ridgeland. The Ranger Rocket competed in different categories along with six other community col-
leges across the state of Mississippi for the "Better Newspaper Contest" student division. Six senior
colleges and universities also attended.

The Ranger Rocket received several first place awards including:

Jones also received a third place award for Best Sports News Story.
T.J. Jernigan of Sarah picked up two third place awards for Best
General News Story and Best Editorial. Kyle Robinzine of Batesville
took home third place for Best Cartoon. The Ranger Rocket
also received a third place award for Best Miscellaneous Ad and
an honorable mention for Best Layout and Design. Blake Sorrell of
Southaven received an honorable mention for Best Investigative

"I am proud of the contributions each of these students has
made to our print publication, The Ranger Rocket. They have
distinguished themselves through the outstanding work they have
done and have performed at a level that merits recognition. I am
honored and privileged to work with these students," said Renate
Ferreira, coordinator of student publications and journalism
instructor.

The conference opened with a welcome and introduction, fol-
lowed by a presentation. George Berry Sr., a member of the Crafts-
men's Guild of Mississippi, spoke to the students and discussed his
career and craftwork.

Dr. Will Norton, dean of the Meek School of Journalism and New
Media, and Dr. Michael Stricklin, a longtime colleague of Norton's and visiting professor from Univer-
sidade Federal de Piaui, Teresina, Brazil, spoke to the students about their careers and gave advice
on being a journalist.

MURAL DFFER5 PLACE FDR
EXPRE55INB GRATITUDE,
5HARIND THOUGHTS

ART MAJOR PAINTS TAYLOR'S THANKSGIVING TREE



BY ATHINA JOHNSON
PHOTOGRAPHY BY ATHINA JOHNSON



�Z



BONNIE DIMAIO, SOPHOMORE ART MAJOR of Charleston, a
Northwest non-traditional student, painted a mural on the lobby
wall in Taylor Hall, depicting the 12th annual Thanksgiving Tree.
The Thanksgiving Tree is an idea Residence Hall Supervisor Jackie
Thulin came up with years ago in order to bring the girls together
in the dorm. "I wanted to do something that no one else had done.
I wanted something we could all be proud about," said Thulin,

The tree features several fall-colored leaves that students and
faculty write on and say what they are thankful for. Anyone who
would like to do a leaf can, including students in other residence
halls, instructors, and employees.

"It doesn't matter, we will put it up. It's for anybody who wants to
share anything they are thankful for. It's not limited to Taylor
Hall," assured Thulin.

In past years there have been problems with finding a person
to draw the Thanksgiving Tree. Previous trees have been drawn
on large pieces of paper with crayons and are disposed of quickly.
Recently Thulin got approval for the mural. "She finally did it, and
I just happened to come along at the moment I'm doing it for her,"
said Dimaio.

In the beginning Thulin assumed that students would write
amusing comments on the leaf such as "I'm thankful that I don't
live on the third floor," or "that I received a D instead of an F." She
soon found that students were writing more deep and serious
comments.

According to Thulin, "One girl had one lung, and she was thank-
ful she had that." Others made comments such as "My daddy
didn't die, he had a triple bypass and I'm thankful he is alive." One
guy was thankful he didn't get killed in a drive-by shooting like
some of his long-time friends.

Another one of the ladies said, "I'm thankful my mom is alive
today; she had a heart transplant a year ago." Thulin was over-
whelmed. "Every time I read that leaf it made me cry," she said.

Even though she has painted other murals before, Dimaio hasn't had any proper lessons until tak-
ing recent classes at Northwest. "I learned from my mom who will be 90 years old in April, and she
never took lessons either," said Dimaio.

Dimaio was a Nursing major when she realized she might not be in the major best suited for her.
"I took art appreciation under Mr. Lawayne House, and he thought I was good enough to make art
my major, so I changed my major," she said.

Leaves were placed on the Thanksgiving Tree after Halloween. "There will be a lot of leaves on
the tree, some will be falling off, but it is ok because it is fall. Everybody has different things that they
are thankful for. I think it makes them feel good to share. For some it is like a secret they carry, and
when they put it on the leaf, they share that and its ok," said Thulin.

"I've been thankful for many things over the years, such as my grandchildren's births and good
health," she said. "Some people don't know what to be thankful for until you give them a leaf."

2010. Dimaio hopes that her work wil make a difference and give
people a place where they can freely and openly express their
thoughts.

NEW RECREATIONAL FACILITIE5
OPEN DN 5ENATDBIA CAMPUS

FACILITIES OFFER WELCOME BREAK FROM ACADEMIC
RESPONSIBILITIES

BUS















The college's Building on Tradition renovation and construction
plan on the Senatobia campus reached another milestone with the
completion of a brand new sports complex.

Recreational and fitness facilities which include outdoor tennis,
basketball and volleyball courts, opened to students shortly before
the end of the fall 201 semester.

"I think that this [the outdoor sports areas] is really great and
will give students the opportunity to have more student body
interaction on campus," said Kellye Rock of Tupelo, a sophomore
nursing major and a member of the tennis class.

"This is for all the students," said Cameron Blount, director of
Athletics and manager of Intramural Sports and Recreation.

The new outdoor facilities allows students to get out of their
dorms to exercise and learn a new sport at the same time.

"These courts," said Blount, "will also enhance our health
education departments and will add to the intramural program we
have here."

NDRTHWE5T 5IDN5 DN
WITH V3 CDLLEBE

TOOL ALLOWS STUDENTS TO FINISH BACHELOR'S
DEGREE AT THEIR OWN PACE



BY KATIE FOX & HILARY JASMIN
PHOTOGRAPH BY THE ROCKETEER STAFF



V3 COLLEGE, Mississippi's new degree completion program, has expanded to correspond with
almost half of all community colleges in Mississippi. V3 College's online program now offers its
classes for students to complete a bachelor's degree in half the
time, similar to Northwest Mississippi Community College's 2 Plus
2 Program, where students complete two years of a degree at a
community college and two years at The University of Mississippi,

V3 College is a program that works alongside universities
in Mississippi, such as Mississippi University for Women in Colum-
bus. V3 College uses different forms of digital media to relay the
message to the student in order for them to better understand the
material in less time. This style of learning is referred to as "3D
Engagement."

According to Dr. Chuck Strong, Northwest's vice president for
Educational Affairs, it "gives more options to technical and voca-
tional majors," given that the program only applies to students
with majors in applied sciences. It also helps the students be able
to complete more schooling without having to travel to a campus to
take the courses that they need.

Dr. Strong also mentioned that "it will attract more students to
Northwest campuses," due to the fact that students will want to
participate in the program. Holmes Community College, Northeast
Mississippi Community College, East Central Community College,
and Southwest Mississippi Community College are some of the Mis-
sissippi community colleges participating in this program.

For more information on setting up courses for V3 College,
go to www.v3college.org.

MAJOR: Health, Physical Education & Recreation

SCHOLARSHIP: Parthenia Dunbar Blackmon

Endowed Scholarship

WHAT DOES GETTING A FOUNDATION SCHOLARSHIP

MEAN TO YOU?

It helps me out a lot! Without this Foundation

Scholarship, I wouldn't be able to afford school.

Since my mother passed away, my grandmother has

been my guardian. Paying for my college expenses

would be hard for her to do.

WHICH INSTRUCTORS HAVE BEEN PARTICULARLY HELPFUL

IN YOUR EXPERIENCE AT NORTHWEST?

While the memory of my loving mother and the

voices of my grandparents keep me going at

Northwest, my instructors have helped me so

much, too. Coach Bill Selby, for instance, has been

a big help in my life by always telling me to never

give up.

WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO CHOOSE YOUR MAJOR?

Playing baseball — one of my favorite things to

do — inspired me to choose physical education as

my major. If I could play baseball all day long, I

would. Choosing this major will also help me work

with kids. Back home I have a lot of little kids that

look up to me.

WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IN FIVE YEARS?

I see myself playing professional baseball or as a

successful baseball coach at a big school where I

can teach students how to find their own success.

WHERE DO YOU PLAN TO GO AFTER YOU COMPLETE YOUR

COURSEWORK AT NORTHWEST?

I plan to go to the University of Southern

Mississippi afterwards, because I think it is a very

good college. My mother was planning to go there

one day herself.

WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE FOR PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT

NORTHWEST?

Northwest offers a great education, and all of the

people here are so nice and very willing to help

you. You also have a lot of one-on-one time with

your instructors whenever you need it.

ABOVE: Jenkins credits Coach Bill Selby for being his inspiration
to keep going and never give up.

5DPHDMDRE MU5IC EDUCATION
MAJDR TAKE5 IT TD THE 5TADE

BLAKE WALKER BAND CAPTURES AUDIENCES WITH
UNIQUE STYLE AND FLAIR



BY MELANIE CRUMP
PHOTOGRAPH SUBMITTED



WITH THEIR MEMBERS DIFFERING IN EVERY aspect from age to profession, the Blake Walker Band
is one of those groups that surprises all with their unique style and flair. The Blake Walker Band was
founded more than a year ago by Blake Walker, a sophomore Music Education major from Memphis.

Walker, who plays keyboards and sings for the band, has been playing for more than 1 3 years.
He has been a part of the bands Deliverance, Soulfire, and Relentless before the Blake Walker Band,
and he has also been on stage with Justin Guarini, Kimberly Locke,
and Carman.

How does Walker feel about his fellow band mates? "I like the
fact that the guys I play with are Christians and are 'real' so to
speak. I won't share a stage with anyone who I feel isn't a Christ
follower, and I feel these guys are."

Other band members include D.J. Fitzgerald, a freshman Music
Education major from Newnan, Ga. Fitzgerald has been with the
band about two months and plays guitar and also sings. He has
been playing for 1 4 years. Fitzgerald got his start in music when he
was very young — being taught chords and simple scales when he
was about four years old by his father who was also a guitar player.

What Fitzgerald likes the most about playing with the band is
"getting to lead people in the worship of our Creator"
with his fellow band mates.

Guitarist Philip Little, is a freshman from Memphis, Tenn. Little
has been playing for six and a half years and was led to music after
hearing the David Crowder Band. What he enjoys most about
playing with the band is that he "gets to serve God with the gift that
He gave me."

The youngest member of the band is Alan Goodwin, an eighth-
grade home-schooled student. Goodwin plays the drums, and has
been playing for more than six years. He enjoys playing with the
band for very simple reasons.

"I get to play drums, which is an instrument I don't normally get to play," he said. Goodwin was led
to music when he started playing piano at age four. After that he began to learn guitar and
drums.

From the beginning it's been obvious that this band, and the people in it, are anything but ordi-
nary. Each leads his own life and comes from a vastly different background. The thing they all have in
common is the music and their mutual need to come together to worship.
so to speak."

For more information visit the band's website at www.blakewalkermusic.com.

NORTHWEST CARES' TD EXPAND
COMMUNITY 5ERVICE AROUND
CAMPUS, TATE COUNTY

SERVICE-BASED GROUP REACHES OUT TO COMMUNITY



BY WILL WHALEY & STACIA SCHOMMER
PHOTOGRAPHY BY THE ROCKETEER STAFF




NORTHWEST CARES, a community service based-group whose intent is helping the Tate County
community and eventually reaching out to surrounding counties, was founded in the Fall of 201 0.
Communications Assistant and Northwest alumna Brittany Greer formed the group and is hoping
to expand her love of community service work to the public and to
involve students, faculty, and staff of the college. The first official
meeting was held Sept. 1 in the Communications Office on the Sena-
tobia campus.

The 1 5 faculty and staff members who attended the meeting
spent time brainstorming ideas for the club's fall semester project.
This organization's first project was a school supply drive for Tate
County elementary schools.

"We want to take this semester to help teachers in need. Many
families have been affected by economic hardship, and anything that
can be donated to these teachers will help them tremendously,"
Greer stated about the project.

The school supply drive began Oct. 1 and ended Dec. 1 . Mem-
bers of the Northwest campuses and the community donated the
basic school supplies needed.

A "Fall Family FunRaiser" was held during Homecoming celebra-
tions Oct. 16 from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. All proceeds from the
fundraiser also benefited the school supply drive.

The fundraiser featured several fun children's games and events
such as face painting, "Meet the Maids" Homecoming pictures and
a cheerleading/dance workshop. (For pictures, please turn to pages
12 and 18.)

"This fundraiser was a great opportunity for faculty, staff, and the
community to enjoy fun games and activities before the Homecoming game. Everyone was invited to
come out and celebrate," said Greer.

All clubs that participated in the school supply drive were invited to attend a pizza party on Dec. 3
in the Communications Office.

"Northwest Cares is open to everyone at Northwest. We are currently looking to expand our
student involvement and encourage anyone who cares about making our community a better place
to join. If your club or organization would like to collaborate with Northwest Cares, let us know. Ideas
are always welcome, as well," said Greer.

For more information contact Greer at (662) 560-5283 or by e-mail at bgreer@northwestms.

NORTHWEST YEARBOOK
CLAIM5 FIR5T IN 5TATE

THE ROCKETEER CELEBRATES THIRD CONSECUTIVE WIN



BY THE ROCKETEER STAFF
PHOTOGRAPH BY THE ROCKETEER STAFF




NORTHWEST'S YEARBOOK, the 2010 Rocketeer, claimed first place in the Mississippi Community/
Junior College Press Association competition for the third year in a row, according to Renate Ferreira,
lead yearbook adviser and journalism instructor.

"Redefined" was the theme for the 224-page, four-color book, edited by freshman graphic design
major Andrew Bartolotta of Southaven. The book received 980 points out of 1 1 00 possible points.

"The Rocketeer ms a strongly executed book that completely enveloped its theme of 'Redefined.'
By using classic elements and a clean, continuous design it was the clear showpiece and winner of the
competition. This is a book that can sit on a coffee table and survive the test of time. The Rocketeer staff
should be very proud of their work and deserve the fruits of their labor," said competition judge Ashley
Dees in her comments.

It has become a tradition for Northwest yearbooks to place in
state competition. Over the past years, the publication has claimed
first-place awards in 2009, 2008, 2005, 2003, 2000, 1998 and
1 997. The book was printed by Taylor Publishing Company in Dallas,
Texas.

"Winning this award for the third consecutive year is a real feather
in our caps. I am so pleased that this award recognized our students'
hard work and made the many hours spent creating this book all
worth it. Editor, Andrew Bartolotta, emerged as a great designer with
new and exciting ideas. This is my fourth year as advisor and I never
cease to be amazed by our students' creativity and dedication," said
Ferreira.

Students at Northwest who work on the publication are enrolled in
one of four sections of College Publications, which is a one-hour
lab class for yearbook or newspaper production. The work takes
place in the Ann Y. Whitten Student Media Center in Yalobusha Hall on
the Senatobia campus, which is equipped with Macintosh computers.

"The Rocketeer keeps getting better year after year. The students
and staff at Northwest should be so proud to have this beautifully-
designed, high-quality publication that documents for posterity the
people, campus life and special events that occurred throughout
the year," said Julie Bauer, assistant director of Communications and
student publications adviser.

The Mississippi Press Association Education Foundation has
awarded the Journalism Department

grants for the past few years, providing newspaper and yearbook staffs with iMac computers, a digital
Rebel camera, and video equipment to record news clips for The Ranger Rocket online edition. The
department was awarded $1 ,400 by the foundation this year for a new iMac computer and tri-pod.

Students work under the leadership of an editor and receive guidance from advisers including Fer-
reira, Bauer and Communications Assistant, Brittany Greer. Former Public Relations Director
Nancy Patterson also assisted in advising the 2010 Rocketeer staff.

For more information on the Northwest journalism program or college publications,
contact Ferreira at (662) 562-3275 or by e-mail at rferreira@northwestms.edu.

RECRUITING EVENT 5HDWCA5E5

5ENIDR5



ANNUAL EVENT GROWS IN SUCCESS



BY THE ROCKETEER STAFF

PHOTOGRAPH BY THE ROCKETEER STAFF




NORTHWEST'S ANNUAL RECRUITING EVENT 'GO WEST' was held Nov. 18 and 1 9 on the Senatobia
campus. More than 400 high school seniors from area Mississippi school districts attended.

"Our intention is to give students the opportunity to visit the campus, meet faculty and educate
them on what Northwest offers," said Jere Herrington, director of Recruiting.

"It's been very successful thus far," she said. "We've had over 200 students both days."
According to Assistant Director of Recruiting Abby Red, the event provid es an opportunity for seniors
to learn more about Northwest and meet other students interested
in the same major.

"We had an excellent turnout this year. Everything was very well
organized, and I believe the students really enjoyed it," said Red.

Attendees watched a recruiting video portraying the everyday
lives of Northwest students, extracurricular activities on campus
and the benefits of attending Northwest. Some students won
door prizes such as T-shirts, umbrellas, hats, binders, bags and
key chains. Kayla Burns from Holly Springs and Parker Gaines of
Magnolia Heights were the recipients of a half tuition scholarship
each to Northwest.

Students were then dismissed to their programs of interest,
where advisors and instructors met with them about pursuing
particular careers at Northwest.

Programs participating in the event included Accounting, Art,
Business Administration, Communications/Public Relations, Com-
puter Information Systems, Computer Science, Criminal Justice,
Health Related Professions, Mathematics, Nursing, Music, Pre-
Pharmacy, Pre-Optometry, Pre-Forensic Chemistry, Pre-Architec-
ture, Pre-Engineering, Psychology, Social Work, Speech/Theatre,
General College, Exercise Science and the Career-Technical division.

"I like that Northwest is small, especially for people that come
from a small high school," said Carmen Luther, a senior from Potts
Camp High School.

According to Lake Cormorant High School senior Emma Scott, her choice of college is a matter of
family tradition. "My entire family has graduated from Northwest," said the future elementary educa-
tion major. "It only makes sense that I would prefer Northwest."

Senior Alesia Brownlee from Independence High said she feels that Northwest would be a great
college for her, because both her sisters are current students and they love the learning experience
here.

As a parent, Yolonda Young feels that Northwest would be a good start for her daughter. "It is
closer to home, and I know that she will be getting the education she needs to become a nurse,"
said Young.

STUDENT CLUB LEADER
MI55IDN5 IN 5IERRA LEDNE

BOWMAN SPENDS 10 DAYS EVANGELIZING CITIZENS



BY JENNA LOSTRITTO
PHOTOGRAPH BY JENNA LOSTRITTO




GLEN BOWMAN, STUDENT LEADER OF NORTHWEST'S CHRIS-
TIANS IN ACTION, spent 10 days in October evangelizing citizens in
Sierra Leone, a country on the west coast of Africa.

Bowman was in Freetown, Sierra Leone Oct. 7-19. The mission
trip was organized by Church of Christ Bible Training School. After
corresponding with his friends from the Bible school, Bowman
travelled overseas to teach at an evangelism workshop.

Bowman participated in a mission trip for one reason — "Je-
sus."

"Being on my own out there experiencing a different way of life
made me see how blessed I am and how much we need God to
provide everything for us," he said.

Sierra Leone is one of the poorest countries in the world. Bow-
man discovered that money meant much more to Sierra Leoneans
than to Americans.

"Not having many conveniences we have here," Bowman said,
"such as warm water, electricity that stays on all day and a stable
government, makes life more difficult there."

He met an American friend who attended and actively participat-
ed in the workshop. "He could relate to me on many levels that oth-
ers in that society couldn't," Bowman explained. "We had several
question and answer sessions which he contributed to greatly. . .we
still keep in touch, and I hope to see him again."

Students interested in going on mission trips should go for it,
according to Bowman.

"It will change your life if you go with a heart to serve God,"
he said. Bowman leads CIA on Tuesday nights at 8:30 p.m. in the Physical Science Building
Lectorium.

DIABETIC ALERT ODD
DEMDN5TRATE5 LIFE-5AVIND

BOSS LEAVES LASTING IMPRESSION ON STUDENT NURSES



BY KRIS TINA DUNI6AN
PHOTOGRAPHY BY ADAM LYNCH




THE NORTHWEST STUDENT NURSES ASSOCIATION hosted Rachel Thornton and her trainee diabet
ic alert dog Boss at its Oct. 10 meeting. Thornton is a member of
the Diabetic Alert Dog Foundation that is associated with Wildrose
Kennels in Oxford, one of the country's most elite Labrador
Retriever training and breeding sites.

According to Adviser Pam Briscoe the SNA invited Thornton
because of her compelling experience with her own daughter's
diagnosis with diabetes and how she became involved with training
diabetic alert dogs.

"I learned exactly how important it is to be aware of the impact
that diabetes has on our society, especially on families affected by
the disease," said SNA President Amanda Hand, a Nursing major
from Grenada.

Thornton's research is making a difference in the lives of others,
one dog at a time. She discovered the help of diabetic alert dogs
after her daughter was diagnosed with Type I diabetes in 2004.

Diabetic alert dogs are able to sense a chemical reaction as-
sociated with the diabetic condition in the human body. When an
individual's blood sugar is dropping or rising, the dog is able to
sense the change and alert diabetics of the changes. Alert dogs
are conditioned to odors associated with blood sugar and receive
1 20 hours of public access training before they are certified.

"Not any dog can do this job. A dog must have the proper
temperament, the proper drive and the proper scent-ability," said
Thornton.

According to Thornton, even dogs with the right temperament,
the right drive and a sound "scent-ability" might not be able to do
this particular job. The diabetic alert dog must perform without any
'find' command or cue. These dogs are always on duty and must be
excellent problem solvers that are able to self initiate.

Thornton also explained that diabetic alert dogs may not be suitable for all diabetics. "There are
many stories that prove that these dogs do and can come in handy. Some stories can be found at
diabeticalertdog. com along with a list of a few diabetic alert dog trainers."

CAREER CENTER HD5T5
INAUGURAL THE MAJOR EVENT'

EVENT AIMS TO ENLIGHTEN STUDENTS ON CAREER CHOICES



BY JENNA LOSTRITTO & JAMES BAILEY
PHOTOGRAPH BY JUDITH HARRELL



WITH PRE-REGISTRATION IN MIND and fall graduation around the corner, Northwest's Beverly B. Stark
Career Center hosted The Major Event Oct. 27 and 28 on the Senatobia campus — the first event of its
kind sponsored by the Career Center.

Career Counselor Kristin Watson pioneered the event to assist students in discovering career options,
finding employment and choosing a major. The event also aimed to encourage current students to pre-
register during November.

"I guess this is more of a pilot project this semester, but we were targeting the Senatobia campus. This
might be a huge flop, but I figured we would give it a shot," said Watson. Watson wanted the name of the
event to offer just enough information to get students interested. Watson came up with the idea for
the event because of the number of students she sees who seem to be confused
or undecided about a major. According to Watson, the college offers such an
extensive range of majors and career paths, that some students find it quite hard,
even confusing to select a major.

Watson emphasized to attendees that it is very important to select a major
that represents something they love, and that although students may not love
some of their classes right now, those classes will ultimately help them do what
they love in the future. Watson and Doug Freeze, both career counselors, talked
to students about career options and how to choose a major. They encouraged
students to meet with their advisors and handed out 201 0-201 1 Bulletins, career
planning resources and candy.

The event featured games and fun activities such as "Fish for a Major" in which
students randomly selected a major from a fishbowl. Career counselors then
talked to students about that major. The counselors were assisted by Tech Prep
Coordinator Patsy Gardner and Work- Based Learning Coordinator Beth Dicker-
son.

According to Freeze, the event presented students with the resources they
need to make the best decisions about their careers and that students simply
picking a major because people tell them to is one of the biggest mistakes many
students make.

"We don't want you to yo-yo with your future," Freeze told students, holding up
a yo-yo with those words painted on it.

According to freshman Zeke Winters, a criminal justice major from Coldwater,
The Major Event was beneficial to him in getting the help he needed to make the best decisions about his
particular field of study.

"It was extremely helpful to me, and I think they should have it again next semester to help even more
students," Winters said. Winters said he would consult with the Career Center in the future if he needed
help getting an internship or if he were to change majors.

"The Career Center assists students with anything career related: internships, creating a resume and
getting jobs," said Watson. "There is even someone to help sophomores take the necessary steps to
transfer to a four-year college or university."

The Career Center is located in the Technical Education Building I. It is open to students Monday - Friday
from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Students can also visit the Career Center on the Northwest
website. For more information, contact Watson at kwatson@northwestms.edu or call (662) 562-3954.

HVAC TECHNOLOGY PROGRAM
RECEIVES 0ENER005 DONATION

EQUIPMENT ALLOWS STUDENTS TO BECOME MORE CONFIDENT
IN THEIR SKILLS


BY TIFFANY MCDANIELS & ROYKEISHA ROCKETTE
PHOTOGRAPHY BY ROYKEISHA ROCKETTE










The Heating, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Technology program received a donation of more
than $5,000 worth of used equipment in the spring of 2010 to aid in training.





The equipment was donated by Lennox Industries in New
Orleans, according to Whit Perry, lead instructor of the program.
Perry and Josh Buchanan (freshman instructor) drove down and
brought the equipment back the following Monday.

"The more equipment we have to work with, the more jobs
we can give the students to work on. The equipment allows the
students to become more confident in their skills," said Perry. The
program received $10,000 worth of new equipment in August from
the Air Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute
(AHRI).

The equipment is donated to certified institutions with the Part-
nership for Air-Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Accreditation
(PAHRA). Northwest became PAHRA accredited in December, 2007.
PAHRA is an independent, third party organization that is a part-
nership between heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigera-
tion (HVACR) educators and the HVACR industry that will award
accreditation to programs that have met and/or exceeded industry
validated standards.

Northwest is the only community college in Mississippi that has
this accreditation.

Since acquiring the PAHRA accreditation, Perry said the program
has received approximately $50,000 worth of new and used train-
ing equipment from many of their industry partners.

Perry said sophomores in the program are using the newly
donated equipment. "Our students are trained with the most recent
equipment available. We could not do the job properly without the
help of our industry partners and we are very thankful for their
support," he said.

As a result of getting the new equipment, the old equipment will be stored and used for back up,
according to Perry.

Other industry partners who have donated equipment are Bard Manufacturing Company of Bryan
Ohio; ESD, Inc. of Memphis; CC Dickson of Horn Lake; M & A Supply of Memphis; Jackson Supply Co.
of Memphis; York JCI of Norman, Okla.; HVAC Sales and Supply of Memphis and Eldridge Services of
Hernando.

"These are just a few who have donated since we acquired this accreditation," said Perry. "It basi-
cally allows us to be the best training program in the Mid-South."

For more information on Northwest's Heating, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Technology
program, call Perry at 662-562-3888 or e-mail wperry@northwestms.edu.

PRACTICAL NUR5INB 5TUDENT5
PRE5ENT BODY WALK
AT ELEMENTARY 5CHDDL

EVENT EDUCATES CHILDREN TO BE AWARE OF HEALTH



BY JENNIFER CONNERS
PHOTOGRAPH SUBMITTED



#



PRACTICAL NURSING STUDENTS AT THE DESOTO CENTER recently volunteered to present the
Body Walk Exhibit to the students at Hope Sullivan Elementary
School in Southaven on Oct. 14. Nursing students arrived at the
school in the morning, divided into small groups and prepared their
assigned stations for the children's arrival.

The Body Walk Exhibit is a new educational exhibit for kindergar-
ten through fifth grade students introduced to Mississippi in 2007
involving an interactive tour of the human body. The program
features stimulating, experimental activities designed to create
awareness among parents, school personnel and community mem-
bers of the importance of teaching children to practice healthy
behaviors.

Groups of six to eight students in kindergarten, first and second
grades toured through the exhibit every five minutes. At each
Body Walk station, a nursing student taught the children healthy
choices by engaging them in a hands-on activity. Students had the
opportunity to meet the Organ Wise Guys, such as Windy the Lungs,
Sir Rebrum, Calci M. Bone, Madame Muscle, Peri Stolic, Hardy
Heart and the Kidney Brothers, and became familiar with their
nutritional message.

Body Walk was developed to improve lifestyle habits among
American children by helping them make better choices at early
ages that have a direct impact on adult health.

According to Body Walk organizers, young people need to learn
about wholesome lifestyle choices and avoid behaviors that have a negative impact on their bodies in
later years. For example, obesity in youth often carries over to adulthood and contributes to chronic,
life-threatening diseases, including heart disease and diabetes.

Body Walk provides teachers with additional resources to increase nutrition knowledge and
improve eating skills of elementary school students. Body Walk organizers work to expose youth
to the importance of nutrition, physical activity, health and hygiene to help reinforce positive health
behaviors and boost the value placed on wellness.

YEARBOOK EDITOR HA5 5PEEIAL
CONNECTION TO N0RTHWE5T

REBECCA NORTON • EDITOR-IN-CHIEF



GROWING UP IN SENATOBIA, Northwest has
always been a part of my life. In 1994, 1 attend-
ed Northwest as a three-year-old student in the
Early Childhood Education Technology program.
After 16 years, I returned as a freshman.

I feel very honored and so proud to be back
at Northwest and hold the title as the Rocketeer
editor. I have always dreamed about being the
editor, and Northwest made that dream come
true.

The theme for this year's book, Genera-
tions, reflects on people having a life-long bond
with the college. Considering theme options
and researching all possibilities, we found that
numerous Northwest faculty and staff members
started their college careers at Northwest. Many
of the employees not only attended Northwest,
but they were also work-study students. Some
of these employees are actually working in the
same offices that they did as students. Our most
significant finding was learning about employees
that attended Northwest whose children gradu-
ated or will be graduating from the same college
their parents or grandparents did.

Northwest is a family. Those who leave knows
they can always count on that family and will
always have a special place to which they can
come home to.

Being so involved in Northwest from such a
young age, the theme for this year has very spe-
cial meaning to me. I hope that each individual
who reads this book feels the same connection
I did. Northwest is a great school to attend
and even greater to grow with throughout your
lifetime.

From football games, to the summer activities for the youth,
Northwest is very involved with generations of my family.

Being a part of the Rocketeer has been a tremendous per-
sonal growing experience. It has not only taught me essential
computer skills and proficiency in software programs such as
Adobe Photoshop and InDesign, but also social skills such as
teamwork and communication.

I will continue to use these skills in my daily life.

I would like to thank Ms. Ferreira for making this year as
joyful as possible. With her clever and humorous remarks, the
staff meetings have been quite pleasurable.

Along with Ms. Ferreira, I would also like to thank the entire
Communications Office for their support. Without their expertise
this book would not be possible.

I would like to thank each staff member




for all of their hard work and dedication. Their work breathed
life into the Rocketeer. They took on so much responsibil-
ity when joining the staff; not only did they take pride in their
responsibility, but they also upheld their duties, and for that, I
am thankful.

As a graphic design major, I feel that being the yearbook
editor would help my future; it helped me to see
how much work goes into creating a school yearbook. In
the future, I hope to transfer to a four-year school
and later have my own photography studio or design Christmas
greeting cards.

Norton graduated from Magnolia Heights where she served as yearbook editor
during her senior year. She enjoys photography and designing displays at her
workplace, Mimi's On Main in Senatobia.



THIS PAGE: Editor Rebecca Norton whose mother, Pat Norton, at-
tended Northwest and presently works as an accounting clerk in
the Business Office, feels honored to have been part of
the yearbook.

MELANIE CRUMP

COPY EDITOR • PHOTOGRAPHER

As part of the yearbook staff I have learned so many
things. I got to use new programs like Photoshop for
the very first time and I discovered just how much
work really goes into the production of a college
, yearbook, I've made wonderful friends during this

m ^M time; most of them P eo P le ' otherwise might not have

Of /*^M met or hung out with. I've met so many different

^^^ people and got to do the photography I so love. I've
had the opportunity to explore my own creativity and found new ways of work-
ing out any problems I may be facing.

As an aspiring photographer, the yearbook was a perfect fit as it gave me
an experience that may serve me well in the future. So much goes into making
a yearbook — more than I ever knew, that's for sure. Yet everything we do,
however small it seems, comes together to form something amazing. Having
the chance to say things like 'I did that.' or 'See what I can do?' just makes my
day and opening up the yearbook and seeing a page that I personally worked
on from planning to print a really amazing feeling.

Now everything is beginning to come together, and I find myself absolutely
awe struck as I look at how the hard work of a few people really paid off in the
long run. Deadlines and layouts all seem like no big deal now that it's finished
and reaching the end of the road was an interesting journey.

The most important lesson I learned would have to be the one we all
learned on day one. That lesson was the first thing Ms. Ferreira taught the
class.

"Don't be afraid to make mistakes, because you never know what you will
accidentally come across that you'd consider a mistake. Part of learning how
to use these software programs is being willing to try different things until you
discover what works best for you," said Ferreira.

That lesson taught me to think outside the box and make the mistakes
before I could learn from them.

I will treasure everything I learned and all the friends I made for the rest of
my life.

Being a part of the Rocketeer staff has been a very
enjoyable experience. Having the opportunity to meet
different individuals has taught me that everyone has
their own unique style of putting things together, and
when their work is complete it has an essence of that
individual within the work. Although we were taught
to make the yearbook look like just one person did all
the work, you can still find individual styles within the

layout, design, structure and composition.
The yearbook has taught me time management, how to make something

look functional and complimentary and how to work and think with others.

These lessons will follow me in both of my journeys through Universities and

careers. Learning how to work with others is something everyone needs to

learn.
Students can gain this knowledge from working on an annual staff, and I




have. Working with the yearbook is like having a family. No matter how dysfunc-
tional it may be sometimes, there is always at least one thing that can bring
a family together. Working on layouts, designs and deadlines is some of the
things that bring our "family" together.

It meant a lot to me being a part of the yearbook staff. It gave me a sense
of responsibility, and it made me feel important in the fact that I was designing
things that people will be looking at years to come. Being a part of something
so vital to Northwest makes me appreciate it so much more. It made me want
to do my best, because I did not want people to see my worst. I wanted people
to look at my work and say 'wow,' but more so, look at the whole completion of
the yearbook in awe.

Ms. Ferreira is an excellent instructor, and really helped me understand
what it means to make everything flow together.

We worked hard as a team to get things done. Even though we may have
felt that we are under a lot of stress sometimes we stuck it out, and got what
we needed to get finished, finished. Being a part of a team that has to work
close together makes you become close to the people with whom you are
working. Seeing other people's ideas gives me an idea of how to make my
ideas better, and vice versa. I would like to think that some of my ideas have
helped some one come to a conclusion to one of their problems.

All in all it has been a wonderful experience, and I have enjoyed it to the
fullest. I have had an amazing instructor and worked with wonderful staff mem-
bers.

I will take all that I have learned from this opportunity and use it wisely to
my advantage.

SHANNON O'HARA
COPY WRITER

I had a blast working on the yearbook staff. I learned
so much. I definitely struggled with the software at
first, but as I got more and more comfortable with it,
assignments did not take as long. Learning the soft-
ware took me a while, and I still have more to learn. I
learned the basic principles of graphic design. I tried
to reflect those principles in my layouts. Hopefully, I
did well with all that I learned this semester.
Although I was very new to the yearbook staff, I really had a lot of fun this
semester. Even though I had fun, it was still challenging for me. Yearbook
staff was definitely a learning experience, but one in which I felt safe to make
mistakes. When I was struggling, which was the majority of the time, my
classmates would help me figure it out. We laughed together and got very
frustrated together. I really appreciated all my classmates and their help.
Without a doubt, Ms. Ferreira helped me the most. She was always someone
I could go to when I needed help. She was always productive, but fun. She
made the yearbook experience for me.

I only wish that I would have joined yearbook staff sooner and not in my last
semester. I would definitely like to continue to be on the yearbook staff at the
University of Memphis. I hope to have the same experience there as I had with
Ms. Ferreira.

To the yearbook staff at Northwest, I would like to thank you for helping me
as much as you did. Thank you for being patient with me when I did not under-
stand and had tons of annoying questions. You guys were really a lot of fun,
and I am grateful for all that you taught me. I will never forget our Wednesdays
at yearbook.
