Jones College’s PTK chapter earns State & Regional Awards

ELLISVILLE – The Rho Sigma chapter of Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society at Jones College ended the year with several chapter and individual honors. PTK President, Shivum Desai of Hattiesburg was selected for a few prestigious individual honors, including the Golden Key Award.

“One member of every PTK chapter in the Mississippi/Louisiana region is recognized with the award at the Regional Spring Conference. Shivum was nominated by advisors for his numerous contributions to the chapter and college, as well as for his academic accomplishments. Additionally, he was named to the All-Mississippi 1st Team in the Academic Team competition and he was recognized as one of four, Coca-Cola Gold scholars,” explained Eric Shows, PTK Advisor at Jones College.

Greene County’s Jared Woullard earned All-Mississippi 2nd Team Transfer Pathway honors and Caleb Brownlee of Moselle earned All-Mississippi Work Pathway 1st Team honors.

The PTK chapter continued its history of success and was recognized as a 5-Star Chapter at the Regional Spring Conference.  To achieve the distinction of 5-Star status, the members had to organize and implement an Honors-in-Action (HIA) project and a College Project.  The HIA project, “Commit to Compliment” involved efforts at the college and secondary-school level to reduce social anxiety.

“Students on the Jones College campus were encouraged to give unprompted compliments to others as a way to promote positive social interactions. Wrist bands with the motto were distributed as a visual reminder for students,” said Shows.

Students also used, ‘Post-It’ boards to give written compliments and they pledged at campus events to compliment others. The PTK officer team made presentations to local, elementary students about the importance of complimenting others in an effort to developing a positive self-esteem

Jones College PTK members volunteered with local elementary school P.E. teachers for the College Project, “Next Steps in Health: Early Intervention.”  The goal was to promote physical activity and exercise at an early age so kids would continue to be physically active later in life which parallels the college’s efforts promoted by Next Steps in Health grant on campus.

Additionally, chapter members logged more than 3,500 hours of community service during the fall and spring semesters participating in projects such as the campus blood drive, tutoring, hosting a supply drive for the Bobcat Pantry and assisting with community beautification.


Jones College’s Mark Brown earns top honors in Art Competitions

 ELLISVILLE – Jones College’s Mark Brown, who is the Chair for the Visual Art Department and art instructor, earned top honors at two prestigious competitions.  Most recently, the accomplished artist received first-place in the sculpture category at the Cotton District Juried Art Competition and Exhibit with his artwork called, “Figurehead.”  He used found materials, primarily metal, to assemble pieces to create the face of a person.

“Technically, my sculpture draws upon gestural and figurative approaches. Furthermore, I utilize discarded items, taking advantage of their aesthetic attributes to achieve desired effects. Because I choose to assemble such a wide range of materials, the process of art-making has become as important as the finished object itself. It is my intention that the viewer becomes aware of this process through the investigation of the layers,” said Brown.

The award-winning piece, “Figurehead” is approximately 30 inches in height and mounts to the wall, although it is three-dimensional. It is composed entirely of found material and is held together by its own tension; no screws or fasteners are employed.

Brown explained, “I use found objects based on characteristics such as texture and color and how they will contribute to the overall composition of the finished work. Additionally, employment of found objects creates a variety of forms on which to work.  Although some works have armatures for support, I rarely use anything but the objects themselves to hold the work together. Once the works are complete, I often cover them with clear epoxy for stability.”

Each piece submitted in the Cotton District Competition and Exhibit is hand selected by a notable juror. This year, Kate Cherry, the Director of the Meridian Museum of Art judged the notable competition.  Cherry has served as Executive Director for the Meridian Museum of Art for ten years, where she has installed more than one-hundred exhibitions, curated more than fifty rotating exhibitions and she has handled all aspects for the annual Bi-State and People’s Choice Competitions. In addition, she has extensive experience touring the arts festival circuit as well as teaching in local, after-school art programs.

“To be selected by Ms. Cherry as an exhibiting artist for the Juried Art show was an honor in itself,” said Brown. “To earn the first place award by such a reputable artist is humbling.”

Last fall, Brown’s work, “Self-Made Figure”, a life-size being was awarded the first-place award for multimedia in the 7th Annual Cedars Juried Art Exhibit and Competition in Jackson. The “Self-Made Figure” was also created from found materials and was assembled in the exact same manner as the “Figurehead” piece of art. The juror for the fall show was renowned Mississippi watercolor artist, Wyatt Waters.

Jones College’s Dr. Lindsey Keay honored as Mississippi Humanities Teacher of the Year

ELLISVILLE –Mississippi Humanities Council representative, Dr. Ronnie Nettles presented Jones College music instructor, Dr. Lindsey Keay as the JC 2018-19 Mississippi Humanities Teacher of the Year during a special presentation at the college.  The former Canadian and current Hattiesburg resident shared some of her discoveries from her doctoral dissertation, “In the Zone: Flow of Music.” Keay explored our intrinsic motivation to function at our finest and how we may find ourselves, “in the zone.”  Dr. Nettles explained the Humanities Council believes it is important to recognize the excellence of humanities teachers across the state while also encouraging their work as scholars.

“The purpose of this lecture and the other presentations taking place in thirty other colleges across the state is to bring the insights of humanities scholars to the larger public. This idea of enabling and encouraging humanities scholars to bring their work to the larger community has always been central to the mission of the Mississippi Humanities Council, where we believe that ‘the humanities are for everyone,’” said Nettles.

Jones College President, Dr. Jesse Smith and Nettles presented Dr. Keay with a plaque and a check after her flute performance and presentation. Keay was also honored by the Mississippi Humanities Council in April in Jackson for her achievements. Some of her achievements and responsibilities besides being the assistant band director and flute instructor at Jones include working with the Maroon Typhoon, JC Jazz, Concert Band, JC Pep Band, JC Flute Choir, JC Percussion Ensemble, teaching music appreciation, giving lessons at South Jones High School and she is a member of the USM Steel Drum Band.  She also is a member of five symphonies in the region in Baton Rouge, the Mississippi Gulf Coast, Meridian, Mobile, and Tupelo’s, North Mississippi Symphony. Additionally, she was invited to teach at a South American masterclass and gave a symphony performance of a rarely played piece of music on her piccolo for the first time in Cartagena, Colombia, South America as part of the music festival and clinic at the Unibac. Dr. Keay is completing her fifth year at Jones College with previous teaching experience at Bedichek Middle School in Austin, Texas, as a graduate assistant at USM, and as an instructor of music education at Southeastern Louisiana University in Hammond, Louisiana.
