Clinton’s Colby wins 2016 Full-Time Student contest

Clinton's Colby wins 2016 Full-Time Student contest

Holmes Community College student David Colby of Clinton was announced the lucky winner of the Fall Full-Time Contest on Wednesday, Oct. 26. His prize? A 2016 Honda Rancher 4×4, Holmes special edition! Colby, a pre-medical student on the Ridgeland Campus, was chosen from the pool of 4,000 Holmes students from 71 counties who registered for 16 hours or more this fall semester.

President of Holmes Dr. Jim Haffey, with the help of Vice President Dr. Don Burnham, Director of Marketing Bronwyn Martin, Officer Carzell Cavett and a handful Ridgeland Ambassadors, surprised Colby with the exciting news in the middle of his English Composition class with Dr. Andrew Kelly. After a short prank by Dr. Haffey, Dr. Burnham and Officer Cavett that led Colby to believe he had committed a "vehicle violation," the others burst into the classroom, balloons in hand. Colby was rendered speechless as Martin excitedly informed him how he could pick up his brand new 4-wheeler, which he will have an opportunity to ride in the Holmes Homecoming Parade on Saturday, Oct. 29.

Holmes is grateful to Got Gear for sponsoring the prize giveaway, and plans to make the Fall Full-Time Contest an annual event. It's a great day to be a Bulldog! #BulldogNation #Signupfor16
