About Our College
Holmes Community College was established in 1911, when plans were made to found Holmes County Agricultural High School in Goodman, Mississippi. The town of Goodman provided 40 acres (160,000 m2) of land (along with free water from the community's artesian well) on the west side of town, and the Board of Trustees purchased an additional 42 acres (170,000 m2) adjacent to the original school location. The mascot of Holmes Community College is the bulldog.
