Malachi Martin and Omarion Luss of Clinton, both Hinds Community College students, recently attended the Men of Color National Summit at Clemson University in Greenville, South Carolina.

The two Clintonians are members of Hinds’ Minority Male Leadership Initiative, also known as M2M, a student organization which aims to increase retention and graduation rates of male students of color by offering civic engagement opportunities, personal development, leadership training, university and employer interactions and cultural enrichment. The M2M group attended the meeting and also toured the campus of Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia.

“[Success] is achieved by engaging students, discovering their personal strengths, their motivations and academic interest,” said Anita Bell-Muhammad, director of M2M. “After a relationship based in trust is established, M2M members are encouraged to participate in a wide range of support services that are designed to impact academic success.”
