Holmes Community College (Goodman, MS 39079-2300)
James Thompson (Project Director: May 2019 to present)
McMorrough Library Renovation Project for Cultivating the Humanities

The renovation of interior spaces in the college’s McMorrough Library, in order to facilitate activities and services that advance humanities education and programming.

The McMorrough Library of Holmes Community College (HCC) in Goodman, MS, is dedicated to the preservation of humanities and seeks to provide an inclusive environment, offering informative programs to cultivate critical-thinking citizens. To enrich and diversify the scope of humanities extended to students, faculty, staff, and community members, HCC has developed plans to renovate the 1975 structure’s interior spaces and their contents. Because of the low socio-economic population the library serves, the need for exposure to the humanities is critical for individuals to recognize their own dreams and potential through the study of literary characters and historical figures who overcame struggles before them. Hence, the new multifaceted spaces proposed by the McMorrough Library Renovation Project for Cultivating the Humanities will secure practical activities set forth as well as advance the library to become an innovative leader among Mississippi’s fifteen public community colleges.
