  POPLARVILLE - The Pearl River Community College Board of Trustees will hold its monthly meeting at 1 p.m. Thursday, June 6, in the Crosby Hall board room.

  The board also changed its July meeting to 1 p.m. Friday, July 12, at Mary Mahoney’s Restaurant in Biloxi.
  The change was made to accommodate the six school superintendents on the board who will be attending a state superintendents’ meeting on the Gulf Coast as well as PRCC trustees who will be attending the MACJC trustees conference.
