Members of Hinds Community College Student VOICES group were among students who met with legislators at the Oct. 16 annual fall legislative luncheon.
Student VOICES is a statewide organization designed to empower community college students to become civically engaged at the local, state, national and global levels. One of their missions is to support mid-level funding, which is a per-student funding level for community colleges midway between funding for K-12 and regional public university students.
