Bailey Hudson of Flora, daughter of Melissa McCoy and Shane Hudson, is well on her way to a successful career path thanks to her education degree from Holmes Community College.

Upon graduation from Holmes, Hudson transferred to Delta State University where she is taking online courses. She is finishing up her junior year this semester, will be a senior in the spring and plans to graduate in December of 2021. During the 2020-21 school year, she will also serve as an assistant teacher at Bentonia Gibbs Elementary School.

"I plan to work as an assistant teacher so I can gain experience while I finish my bachelor's degree," Hudson said. "My end goal is to become an elementary teacher, but I don't have a specific grade I want to teach. I just feel as though God has called me to this profession and I can't wait to see what He has in store for me when I officially become a teacher!"

Though academics and were her main focus while at Holmes, Hudson was also active in campus activities. She was named both a Freshman Class Favorite and a Freshman Homecoming Maid.

"I loved being on Homecoming Court!" Hudson said. "It was so much fun getting dressed up and I met so many new friends at the other Holmes campuses."

Outside of school, Hudson loves outdoor activities such as hunting and fishing. She is also currently working at a nutrition club and a hair salon.

Although she is still working toward her end goal of earning her bachelor's in education, Hudson said she already knows that Holmes was the best choice for her to start her education off with a strong foundation.

"I absolutely loved Holmes," Hudson said. "I highly recommend doing your first two years of college there because it's a great adjustment from high school and the teachers are awesome!"
