Moody was among more than 600 high school students and parents who toured the Raymond Campus and visited information booths to learn all about Hinds, from programs, to activities to practical information such as applying for scholarships.
The annual Preview Day on Feb. 3 started with check-in with a phone scan at Cain-Cochran Hall and a tour led by a Hinds Connection student before visitors perused booths at Mayo Fieldhouse.
