Pearl River ensures students are performance ready with purchase of new pianos

Pearl River ensures students are performance ready with purchase of new pianos

Pearl River Community College is investing in the arts as the Fine Arts Department recently received an update to the piano lab.

“We are thrilled and so grateful to be receiving new Yamaha digital pianos in the piano lab,” PRCC Music Instructor Hope McKellip Bass said. “They arrived Friday morning and we are eager to get to work on them in my freshmen and sophomore piano classes.”

Thirteen Yamaha digital pianos were purchased from Mississippi Music in Hattiesburg for piano classes. PRCC also bought a George Steck baby grand piano to be used in accompanying PRCC’s choral ensembles. Piano classes are normally reserved for music majors. The four consecutive sections prepare those students to move on to the university level and pass a required piano proficiency for their degrees. 

“I’m excited about the new pianos because I think it’s really awesome how involved PRCC is with the music department and how important it is to them,” PRCC music major Mallorie Saucier said. “This is really a big deal for us. It’s fun to get to wake up and come to class and it’s like Christmas.”

The new purchases are in addition to the Steinway 9-foot concert grand piano purchased in the last five years for the state-of-the-art Ethel Holden Brownstone Center for Performing Arts. 

“This is definitely a huge upgrade that we are so excited about,” Bass said. “Thank you to Mr. Roger Knight, the PRCC Board of Trustees, and Carl Johnston at Mississippi Music in Hattiesburg, for making this happen.”

Anyone interested in joining the Wildcat Family as a music major can email PRCC Fine Arts and Communication Department Chair Dr. Trevor Hunt at thunt@prcc.edu.

Pearl River unveils 2020-21 theme: We Are W1ldcats

Pearl River unveils 2020-21 theme: We Are W1ldcats

Pearl River Community College is highlighting the strength of the Wildcat Family with its new theme for the 2020-21 school year: 

“We Are Commun1ty. We Are Fam1ly. We Are W1ldcats.”

These words represent a variety of experiences that are at the heart of what it means to be a Pearl River Wildcat. No matter the background or plans for the future, those at The River are invited, accepted and held to a standard in line with the “Wildcat Way” of living. 

“Our students have adapted exceptionally to the challenges we have all incurred through COVID-19 this year,” PRCC President Dr. Adam Breerwood said. “The new marketing theme encompasses the values and morals we try to instill in our students through the Wildcat Way of living. We teach our students that through Pride, Respect, Class and Character they will become successful members of our local communities. We take the role of being a community, family and role model for our students very seriously. The ‘We are Commun1ty, We are Fam1ly, We are W1ldcats’ theme is heartfelt and we welcome everyone to be a part of the great things happening at PRCC.”

As an institution that prides itself on aiding students to become successful community members who embody pride, respect, class and character, Pearl River expects this year’s rally cry will strengthen the feeling of what it means to be a Wildcat. 

“With everything that has been thrown in our direction during this pandemic, one thing remains — we are united, we are W1ldcats,” PRCC Associate Vice President of Marketing and Communication Candace Harper said. “Together we can overcome anything and that is exactly the message we want to convey to our students, employees and community through this marketing theme. When you become a Wildcat, you’re backed by a fierce group of Wildcats that can push through adversity, overcome insurmountable challenges, and come out on the other side stronger.”

As new Wildcats beginning their journey at The River take time to learn how to be a college student, they are also learning where they fit into our Wildcat Family. 

“I feel like we as students are welcomed on campus and made to feel like this place is ours to utilize,” PRCC Sophomore Ariyon Antoine said. “No matter who you are or where you came from, you are given support, encouragement and motivation. You are made to feel a part of the Wildcat Family.”

Employees at PRCC have also witnessed instances of the Wildcat Community feeling.

“The Fall 2021 semester has presented numerous opportunities for growth, and it has been rejuvenating to watch the responses,” Senior Vice President for Instruction/Provost Dr. Martha Lou Smith said. “Simply being supportive of a fellow employee who is learning a new teaching strategy or supportive of a student who is enrolled in college classes for the first time has been an opportunity to demonstrate the unity that is reflected in We are W1ldcats.”  

The collaboration and support presented at The River is not only building up students but facilitating the successes of colleagues as well.

“A rising tide lifts all boats,” Director of Choral Groups Dr. LaDona Tyson said. “This statement applies to daily life at PRCC. We succeed by helping one another, by bringing others with us as we excel. We are not left to face challenges without leadership or support, we continue to persevere through adversity as a community. There is an overwhelming sense that adversity breeds strength and success, not failure. When I come to work each day, I know that I am a part of a community.  I have been so fortunate to receive help and mentorship from administrators and other teachers.  Likewise, I know that I share in the responsibility of helping and mentoring others. I believe this is foundational to our success, and that this mindset is passed along to our students."

PRCC Vice President for Forrest County Center, Allied Health and Nursing Programs Dr. Jana Causey quoted Babe Ruth’s famous words on individualism versus unity: “You may have the greatest bunch of individual stars in the world, but if they don’t play together, the club won’t be worth a dime.”  

Causey added: “At Pearl River Community College, we know that we must be united in our efforts to put our students on a pathway to success, to grow and support our surrounding communities, and to elevate the opportunities of the people in our district. Every part of this family is important, and we all play a part in a bigger picture, a beautiful and complex picture that ultimately can change lives.”

“We Are W1ldcats” signifies to others what those a part of Pearl River Community College already know. There is a strong, supportive and loyal family waiting for you at The River.

Those interested in joining the Wildcat Family can visit PRCC.EDU or email recruitment@prcc.edu

Want positive vibes? Pearl River can help with launch of The Wildcat Way Show

Want positive vibes? Pearl River can help with launch of The Wildcat Way Show

Pearl River recently premiered the school’s new motivational podcastand YouTube show The Wildcat Way Show. 

The show, co-hosted by PRCC Marketing and Communication Specialist Kari Eve Valence and PRCC Public Relations Specialist Kendale Lumpkins, re-affirms the school’s mantra of the Wildcat Way: Pride, Respect, Class and Character. It is meant to serve as a way to share the uplifting, hardworking and motivational stories of the Wildcat Community. 

“Last year I told my team to ‘Dream Big’, that we want to create ways to reach beyond our comfort zone and share the great things that PRCC has to offer with the entire world,” Associate Vice President of Marketing and Communication Candace Harper said. “The Wildcat Way Show allows us to reach a variety of different groups through a multi-level, multimedia solution. Through the use of our Podcast, YouTube channel, website and social media outlets we are able to captivate a wide target audience through our marketing channels. Our whole goal of marketing is to ‘get the right message to the right person at the right time.’ I am very proud of the professionalism and commitment the entire Marketing Team has committed to making this show a reality. They make PRCC proud.” 

Episodes of the show are released every Tuesday at 10 a.m. on the show’s YouTube channel and Apple Podcast store. Each week they will be broaching a new topic that they hope will inspire and motivate the Wildcat Family. The latest episode covered “tough talks” during which the hosts offered advice and guidance on how to best delve into difficult conversations with friends, family or co-workers.

“We started The Wildcat Way Show to motivate, uplift and inspire,” Marketing and Communication Specialist and TWWS host Kari Eve Valence said. “We want to share our own personal life experiences, our different backgrounds and upbringings, and show how through an open mind and an open-heart, people of all walks of life can unite as one. We hope this show will serve as a way to encourage people to live their lives The Wildcat Way, with pride, respect, class and character.”

Before joining the Wildcat Family Valence was a columnist for the New Orleans Times Picayune and NOLA.com. 

For years prior Valence worked at WLOX News in Biloxi, MS as a Multi-Media Journalist and Producer where she covered breaking news stories, anchored the “Around the Region'' daily news segment, and wrote in-depth pieces for air, website, and social media spots. She got her “big break” while working at WDSU in New Orleans, LA while completing her Bachelors Degree in English from the University of New Orleans.

Following Hurricane Katrina Valence took a year off of school, where she was studying Political Science at Rhodes College in Memphis, TN, and enrolled in Americorps NCCC*, the National Civilian Community Corp. Through this program Valence traveled across the country to address critical needs in education, disaster relief, public safety, and the environment. She worked disaster relief in both Mississippi and Louisiana where she assisted with developing emergency plans of action with FEMA, manned Red Cross stations, and both demolished and rebuilt ravaged homes, schools, and businesses across our coastline, partnered with Teach for America tutoring children with Autism in Philadelphia, New York City and Baltimore, and constructed homes with Habitat for Humanity in Connecticut after a devastating complex fire left hundreds of families homeless.

Valence is originally from Buras, LA in southern Plaquemines Parish (home of the Wildcats) where she graduated from Buras High School. She reigned as the 61st Plaquemines Parish Fair & Orange Festival Queen and now lives in Poplarville with her husband Jonah, their son Little Jonah, and their baby daughter Gentry.

Lumpkins is a long time member of the Wildcat Family. Along with being a PRCC Public Relations Specialist, he also serves as the Fellowship of Christian Athletes Ambassador. 

“It is my hope that The Wildcat Way Show will be a source of inspiration and hope, not only for Pearl River students and staff, but to the community at large, to navigate through challenging times of their lives,” he said.

Lumpkins is the author of a book “Wrecked, But Not Totaled” where he challenges individuals that want to change the trajectory of their lives. He is also an inspirational speaker and has traveled South Mississippi encouraging audiences to be the best version of themselves. 

“Despite how hard we strive, we always miss a step here or there,” Lumpkins wrote in his book. “Sometimes, our mistakes wreck so much havoc it's hard to get up and start again. If you’ve ever made a mistake, fallen short, felt disappointed, and wanted to give up, this book is not for you. I wrote this book to encourage those of you who have made bad decisions. This book is for people who haven’t always been proud of who they are. This book is for people like me. Your current condition does not determine your future position! Your bad choices may have bent your life out of shape, but you are not totaled. You are still here. You still have purpose.” 

For the last several years Lumpkins has worked as a Safety and Environmental Lead for Shell Oil Company. He is passionate about the safety and health of the people, assets, and the environment. Lumpkins has always been passionate about helping people and is determined to use his communication skills to encourage and inspire the next generation. 

Lumpkins attended PRCC in 2004 and embraced “The Wildcat Way” while serving as the SGA President, River Navigator, and freshmen class favorite. He also spent six months participating in the Disney College Program at Walt Disney World where he had the unique opportunity to meet people from around the world, network and learn new skills. 

Lumpkins was raised in Columbia, MS and is a graduate of Mississippi College where he majored in Communications and minored in Marketing. He now resides in Sumrall with his wife Kim and their three children; Alana, Mekhi, and Kimbrie.

Both co-hosts hope that their experiences will allow them to make a difference in the lives of students and the Wildcat Community at large through The Wildcat Way Show. 

“If we are able to help just one person be the best version of themselves then we’ve done our part in making the world a better place,” Lumpkins said. 

Episodes of The Wildcat Way Show premiere each Tuesday at 10 a.m. on Youtube and Apple Podcast. Be sure to follow The Wildcat Way Show on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and subscribe to the Youtube Channel for all the latest updates.

Pearl River to offer virtual Surgical Technology Q&A

Pearl River to offer virtual Surgical Technology Q&A

 Pearl River Community College’s Surgical Technology Program instructors will be providing important information to interested applicants through two upcoming virtual Q & A sessions. 

Sessions will be held over WebEx on Thursday, Sept. 24 and Thursday, Oct. 8 from 4 - 5 p.m. 

“We are really looking forward to meeting and talking with prospective students and anyone who just wants to learn more about what we do,” PRCC Instructor of Surgical Technology Lori Little said. “We love surgery and can’t wait to share more information about it.”

Instructors will be answering any questions from students and covering information about applications, deadlines, requirements, program information and the Surgical Technology field in general. 

The Surgical Technology Program located at PRCC’s Forrest County Center, is a comprehensive program of study where students receive an in-depth practical knowledge and essential clinical education related to the Operating Room. In addition to the hospital OR, Surgical Technologists may be employed in Labor & Delivery, Central Sterile Processing departments, Supply/Purchasing, Outpatient Clinic and Surgery facilities, sales representatives for medical product companies as well other career opportunities that may be available.

The US Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that the Surgical Technology profession will grow faster than the average of all other occupations through the year 2020, and it is anticipated that the volume of surgery will increase exponentially.

Those interested in attending either virtual session should email llittle@prcc.edu for a WebEx invitation.

Pearl River celebrates 9th consecutive semester of growth

Pearl River celebrates 9th consecutive semester of growth

Pearl River Community College is celebrating nine consecutive semesters of growth for fall 2020. 

According to the 10th day enrollment report published by the Mississippi Community College Board, Pearl River’s enrollment is 5,298 with 75,615 credit hours in fall 2020. Compared to fall of ’19, Pearl River’s credit hours have increased 3.8% percent giving the institution another semester of growth.

“We have put great emphasis on providing efficient, accessible and affordable higher education opportunities over the past several years,” Pearl River President Dr. Adam Breerwood said. “Covid-19 presented unprecedented challenges and obstacles for all members of the PRCC family. The college's continued growth, despite these challenges, is a testament to the overwhelming commitment of our faculty, staff and students. College enrollment has dropped significantly throughout the state and nation over the past few years. To have ongoing growth for nine consecutive semesters is unique and nothing short of remarkable.

“The Mississippi Community College Board’s enrollment report has provided a boost of confidence to remain focused on the continued expansion of facilities and programs. I believe our best days are still ahead of us. The River is Rising.” 

EDUCATION ON YOUR TIME 

Recent changes at Pearl River have made starting your education journey as attainable as ever. With online, face-to-face and hybrid classes, as well as multiple start dates throughout the semester, pursuing the path to a degree has never been more convenient. Holding together the foundation of this convenience are PRCC employees who make students a priority. 

“Steady, consistent increases in enrollment are the result of the people who embody PRCC—the instructors, the office workers, the physical plant employees, the alumni,” PRCC Senior Vice President of Instruction and Provost Dr. Martha Lou Smith said. “Fall 2020 has certainly been full of the unexpected, but instructors and students have risen to meet the challenges.  Whether it’s COVID-19 or a potential storm, class schedules have provided flexibility allowing students to continue accessing courses even when not on campuses.” 

Pearl River’s commitment to educate students on their time makes an education accessible to a wide range of students. Academic and Career and Technical degree plans open a variety of post-graduation career opportunities for both traditional and non-traditional Pearl River students. Whether you are looking to go back to school after a long hiatus, wanting to change career paths or are just starting your educational career, Pearl River has a schedule that fits those needs. 

While 2020 has set in place many obstacles for all of higher education, PRCC has continued to keep students and their needs as the main objective. Pearl River realizes that once students join the Wildcat Family it is just as important to their educational goals that they are supported and encouraged in and out of the classroom. 

“We may be living in uncertain times, but the Wildcat family is stronger than ever,” Vice President for Forrest County Center, Allied Health and Nursing programs Dr. Jana Causey said. “Pandemics and hurricanes will not hold us back. I am super proud of our outstanding faculty as they have truly been the glue holding us all together. Our faculty have worked tirelessly to reach every student through many different learning options. Students can choose the best option for them to learn, and we are dedicated to helping all students reach their educational and career goals. We, at Pearl River Community College, are committed to helping students in and beyond the classroom.”

 

ADAPTING TO COVID-19

Pearl River seamlessly adapted to the conditions set by COVID-19 by adjusting teaching methods, implementing safety measures and securing materials needed to keep the Wildcat community safe. 

Signs were hung at key points around campus that include QR codes to direct students and employees to instant access of COVID-19 protocols and updates. Buildings are routinely sanitized, 26 temperature kiosks were installed, desks were moved to account for social distancing guidelines and more than 5,000 face masks were purchased to provide students protection free of charge. Wellness self-check emails are also sent to employees each morning before they arrive on campus.

With instructors utilizing the HyFlex teaching method, students are given the option to learn in a traditional face-to-face setting or online in real time. The virtual technologies employed have opened doors beyond COVID-19 for students to choose where, how and when they want to learn like never before. By working out learning opportunities with each class, instructors are able to meet the needs of each individual student.

While causing adaptation in many aspects of the college’s operations, PRCC’s Office of Recruitment especially had to make adjustments to its outreach efforts in local communities. 

“Due to the Covid-19, we have had to adjust how we reach out to and communicate with prospective and applied students,” Director of Recruitment Richard Gleber said. “Since we cannot visit most schools, we have held our typical classroom visits and application days virtually. To allow students to meet with PRCC recruiters face-to-face, we now host Recruiter Meet and Greets on our Forrest County and Hancock County campuses. The Meet and Greets,  offer both prospective and recently applied students an opportunity to meet with a PRCC recruiter and have any questions they may have about the upcoming year answered. The recruiters will also be able to assist students in completing a new student application.

The goal of the Office of Recruitment is to still offer the personal attention prospective students deserve, we are just going about it in a different way”

WE ARE W1LDCATS

Pearl River recently announced the institution’s theme for the 2020-21 year: “We Are Commun1ty. We Are Fam1ly. We Are W1ldcats.” These words represent a variety of experiences that are at the heart of what it means to be a Pearl River Wildcat. No matter the background or plans for the future, those at The River are invited, accepted and held to a standard in line with the “Wildcat Way” of living. 

“‘Together we stand, divided we fall’ is a great summation to the environment we share at PRCC,” Pearl River Assistant Vice President for Hancock Center Raymunda Barnes said. “Fall 2020 presented challenges to every educational institution across the country. However, the PRCC family faced the storm of COVID-19 and alternate teaching and learning platforms standing on the principles of ‘Pride, Respect, Class and Character’ together as one team. We are W1ldcats.”

As an institution that prides itself on aiding students to become successful community members who embody pride, respect, class and character, Pearl River expects this year’s rally cry will strengthen the feeling of what it means to be a Wildcat. 

“When I was deciding on college to attend, I was told by someone that ‘it’s just different over there’ at PRCC,” Pearl River freshman Quentin Williams said. “I have now learned what they meant by that. PRCC cares on a different level than most other colleges. Instructors and others at PRCC really want us here and want to help us to succeed. They are willing to go the extra mile to ensure student success. PRCC alleviated a lot of stress that I had about finances and it was a better decision for me to go to a two year college first than a University.”

“We Are W1ldcats” signifies to others what those a part of Pearl River Community College already know. There is a strong, supportive and loyal family waiting for you at The River.

As numbers rise at The River, so does the dedication and anticipation for even greater things to come.

Donation brings Andy Warhol to Pearl River

Donation brings Andy Warhol to Pearl River

A generous alumnus is giving Pearl River students cultural opportunities. 

PRCC alumnus Craig Griffing recently donated an Andy Warhol print entitled Committee 2000 to be displayed in the Ethel Holden Brownstone Center for the Arts on PRCC’s Poplarville campus. The color print is signed in pencil and is 1,675 of only 2,000 printed. 

Griffing graduated from Pearl River in 1977 before continuing his education and entering the medical field. He started his art collection more than 30 years ago due to an interest in history and art. 

This is not Griffing’s first art donation to the college. In February, he also donated works by Rembrandt Van Rijn, Robert Indiana, Pablo Picasso and George Ohr. 

“I’ve been an art collector over 30 years and I’m at the stage of life where I want to share it and introduce younger generations to art and that’s why I made the original donation earlier this year and why I’m doing this now,” Griffing said. “Instead of people from South Mississippi having to go to expensive museums in big cities and pay big fees to see fine art, I’d like them to walk in free of charge and see it here in the field of art work. I think it should be a major part of any college student’s education to know the basics to know who these artists are. Hopefully that will spark an interest in some of the current and future students here.” 

Griffing said his positive memories of Pearl River and strong ties to the college made PRCC the right place to house his donations. 

“I fully enjoyed my two years here,” Griffing said. “Seeing all the improvements to the institution since I've been here, I want to continue to contribute to that. I want to introduce people of South Mississippi, especially at this college, what fine art truly is and not have to read it out of a book but see it in person and make that strong impression.”

Griffing met with Executive Director of Development Foundation/Alumni Association Ernie Lovell and Department Chair/Director of Brownstone Performing Arts Center Dr. Trevor Hunt to consider display options in the Brownstone Center. 

“We are excited to add this Warhol to PRCC’s permanent collection of art and very appreciative of Mr.  Griffing's generosity and vision to share the visual arts with the community,” Hunt said. “Committee 2000 along with other works donated by Mr. Griffing, will be housed in the Ethel Holden Brownstone Center for all to see."”

Lovell understands the importance of these donations and the chance they give students and the public alike to experience fine art so close to home. He hopes that this generosity will inspire others. 

“We are very appreciative of Craig and we are very excited about the opportunity this affords the students and the public to see great art and great items from our fine arts programs,” Executive Director of Development Foundation/Alumni Association Ernet Lovell Jr. said. “This will be long lasting and also generate the opportunity for people to continue to help it grow and give more.”

 Those interested in donating to Pearl River can call 601-403-1193 or email elovell@prcc.edu
