POPLARVILLE - Students in the second graduating class of the Honors Institute at Pearl River Community College received medallions in a ceremony Thursday, May 1, in Poplarville. The Honors Institute gives intellectually-gifted students the benefits of small, specialized classes along with field trips and an internship partnership with the Environmental Protection Agency at Stennis Space Center. Dr. Stephen Black directs the institute. Fourteen Honors Institute students at the Forrest County Center and the Poplarville campus will be graduating on May 14. “I was really shy,” said Sonya Conerly, a Forrest County Agricultural High School graduate. “I didn’t feel like my opinion mattered. The small classes helped me find my voice and that’s an incredible thing.” Dr. William Lewis, PRCC president, told the students that they have helped make the Honors Institute a greater success than envisioned. “When we began this effort a couple years ago, I’ll tell you we had a selfish interest - we thought it would help us attract some special students,” Lewis said. “We have taken some giant steps to make this a reality. We hope that you have been served well.” Lewis and graduate Trevor Creighton of Hattiesburg praised the faculty who teach Honors courses. “What makes our Honors Institute so exceptional is the instructors,” Creighton said. “It is the faculty who labor beyond expectations.” The small classes provide an enhanced setting for learning, said graduate Chelsea Gascho of Picayune. “The thing I value most about the institute is the environment, being surrounded by people who value learning as much as I do,” she said. In addition to Conerly, Creighton and Gascho, graduates are Sarah Krock and Stephen Perry, both of Hattiesburg; D’Shanal W. Fowler and Nigel H. Simmons, both of Picayune; Marcus R. Petty and Shassidy L. Ramshur, both of Columbia; Hollie A. Chester of Lumberton, Natalee Baggett Dukes of Sumrall, Branden D. Edenfield of Diamondhead, Rachel C. Fowler of Purvis and Sarah A. Silver of Perkinston.

Former Pearl River Community College football great Doug Daniels was inducted into the Mississippi Community and Junior College Sports Hall of Fame during ceremonies on April 29 in Jackson. Daniels, 81, who lives in Poplarville with his wife, Phyllis, was one of 15 inductees into the class. Daniels was a standout football player at PRCC from 1950-52 following an outstanding high school career at Poplarville High. “This award means everything to me,” said Daniels. “Pearl River College has been in my life since I was a toddler. I used to play football on Sunday afternoons on the campus until I was old enough to play varsity ball. The school has always been a part of my life.” As a 17-year-old PRCC freshman in 1950, Daniels started as a halfback and then played the balance of the year at defensive safety. He led the defense with six interceptions in six games, returned punts and kicked PATs. When Daniels was a sophomore, late coach Dobie Holden, a Mississippi Community and Junior College Sports Hall of Fame inductee, moved him to quarterback. One of his best passing games was four touchdown passes in a 47-0 win at East Mississippi. He also handled all the punting and kicking duties. Daniels, a PRCC Sports Hall of Fame inductee, was named to the All-State first team as the quarterback. He also received the PRCC J. J. Holcomb Outstanding Athlete Award. “This is one of the great honors an athlete could have,” said Daniels. “I’m so humbled by the selection.” Daniels was recruited by Tulane University, the University of Southern Mississippi, and Southeastern Louisiana University. He chose Southeastern and alternated at quarterback, halfback, and safety on defense. Southeastern won the Gulf States Conference co-championship both years he played at SLU. In 1954, after receiving his mathematics degree, he joined the Army. Doug and his wife, Phyllis, who is a 36-year PRCC business instructor retiree, have been married for 47 years and have three children, Darla (David), Dana (Kevin), and Bryan (Laura), and 13 grandchildren.

At first glance, you might think summer semester is an oxymoron of sorts. But there are numerous reasons taking classes during summer semester is incredible beneficial. Here are just five.
Jump ahead and graduate earlier. It seems like a great deal, getting some of the credits that you need out of the way early. When you take a few classes ahead of time, it will open up your schedule more and this will give you time for other studies. This also works on the opposite side of things as well. If you're doing bad in a college class and have to drop it for that semester you are given the chance to take a class in place of that or similar to it, during the summer courses. This will get you right back on track to graduating, and being successful with your college career.
You still get a summer. When taking a summer class at your college the semester is shorter than the fall semester. This makes time fly by, before you know it you`ll be at the end of your class and still have a little part of your summer left as your break before you go to the fall semester. On top of that, because you will be taking on a smaller course load, you’ll be leaving plenty of time for fun in the sun. You really don`t lose a summer when it comes down to it.
The campus is much quieter. When going to college in the summer, you will find that not as many students are attending, leaving the whole campus quiet and less busy. This also helps for the upcoming fall semester you can get use to the campus before most of the new students come during the fall semester.
Finding Parking is easy At PRCC we strive to make parking easy, but in the fall and spring semesters it does get a little crowed. Well, in the summer semester things are less busy and more relaxed. Finding a parking spot becomes an easy process during the summer semester and doesn’t love parking on the front row.
Classes are more relaxed. Because most of the classes are smaller, you actually get more attention for those hard classes. The atmosphere in the summer semesters are a lot more laid back.
When you think about it, summer semester provides a great opportunity for students to get ahead in their coursework with better focus and increased attention from their professors. It is important to recognize that summer classes are not for everyone, and their value is largely determined by personal preference and learning style.
POPLARVILLE - A Pearl River Community College student returned home from the National Collegiate DECA conference with a first place award. Josh Carlan, 20, of Leetown was part of a four-person team that won the National Management Institute Award. He was teamed with three other students - none of whom knew each other previously - to spend two days on a project. “Part of the objective is to learn to work together with a limited amount of time,” he said. “We had to create a social media platform for a famous hip-hop clothing store.” His team competed against five or six other groups and worked from about 9 a.m. to 5 or 6 p.m. both days and got together again at night. “I got along well with all the people in my group,” Carlan said. “The only challenge, per se, was we had to create our presentation and a three-page paper in two days. The challenge was the amount of time we had.” A Wildcat cheerleader, Carlan will be back on the PRCC campus next year and plans to earn a double degree in marketing management and a health-related field. While going to school, he holds down a job at Koenig Stainless Steel in Kiln. “As Josh’s instructor and advisor, I am so proud of this accomplishment,” said marketing management instructor Delana Harris, DECA advisor. “This is PRCC’s highest win at the national level in Collegiate DECA and is a great honor for Josh and our institution.” Carlan placed first in sports and entertainment marketing at the state competition held Feb. 27-28 in Gulfport. Taylor Walker and Brooke Fulcher, both of Picayune, placed first in the state in the business ethics competition. They competed nationally but did not place. The national convention was held April 22-27 in Washington, D.C.

HATTIESBURG - Rain fell outside and a few tears of joy fell inside the Forrest County Multi Purpose Center Wednesday when Pearl River Community College held graduation. Approximately 475 students took part in the annual rite, receiving their diplomas from PRCC President Dr. William Lewis. The diplomas symbolize the knowledge and skill to be successful in the workplace or in furthering their education, Lewis said. “Please remember that education is a lifelong process,” he said. “We wish for you the best life has to offer.” Almost 1,000 students have completed the requirements for an associate in arts degree, an associate in applied science degree or a certificate in proficiency in the year since the 2013 commencement ceremony. Dr. Eric Clark, executive director of the Mississippi Community College Board, reminded the graduates and their families not only of the importance of education but also encouraged them to be good people. “I remember when I was taught the Golden Rule,” Clark said. “I was 5 years old and I remember a light bulb going off and thinking, ‘Now that’s a good idea’.” Like Lewis, Clark stressed the need to make learning a lifelong habit with an additional admonition. “In my opinion, it’s even more important to be a good person,” he said. The graduates included 14 Honors Institute students, the second class to complete the program for academically-gifted students. In addition to diplomas, they received Honors Institute certificates. Many of the graduates, like Lynell Powell of Purvis and Sarah Gibson of Petal, will continue their education. Both will attend William Carey University. Mitchell Tadlock of Raleigh, who completed the electrical technology program, already signed an employment contract with Ingalls Shipbuilding. But a torn knee ligament means he faces surgery and a delay in going to work. “They said to call when I can work,” Tadlock said. For Priscilla Wellman of Slidell, La., formerly of Picayune, graduation was a day of mixed emotions. She attached glittery gold letters to her cap, reading “This is for you, Daddy, a tribute to her late father, James Nelson, who died when she was three years old. “I’m the first one in my family to graduate from college,” she said as tears threatened to spill from her eyes. On hand to witness the milestone were her mother, Susan Wellman of Robertsdale, Ala., siblings, and her aunt, Karen Wellman Warner of Pinellas Park, Fla. Priscilla Wellman hopes to further her education by enrolling in PRCC’s medical radiologic program at the Forrest County Center.

POPLARVILLE - Applications are being accepted by Student Support Services at Pearl River Community College for the seventh annual Summer Bridge to College Program, also known as START. The Summer Bridge Program, which runs from June 26 to July 24, allows students eligible for Student Support Services to earn up to 9 college credits while learning skills to help them be successful in community college. The program meets from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday. The primary criteria for Student Support Services participation is the need for academic support, based on ACT scores, grade point average in high school, graduation from a GED program or being a non-traditional student who has been out of school for more than five years. Participants must also meet at least one of the following criteria: low-income, have a documented disability or neither parent graduated from a four-year college with a degree. Students accepted for the program pay no tuition and are required to apply for a federal Pell Grant (FASFA) to possibly cover the cost of books, fees, dormitory room, etc. To be considered for the Summer Bridge Program, students must complete a two-step process: (1) Submit a signed admissions application to the PRCC admissions office that includes an official high school transcript or GED test scores, along with ACT scores. (2) Mail a completed Summer Bridge Program application to Georgia Field, Student Support Services, P.O. Box 5118, Poplarville, MS 39470 or fax the application to 601-403-1042.
