PRCC hosts CTE signing day on July 7 in Hattiesburg

Pearl River Community College is hosting a special signing day for students interested in enrolling in one of the many Career-Technical Education programs offered at the Forrest County Center.

Signing day is Tuesday, July 7. 

“We are excited about CTE signing day,” said Dr. Jana Causey, Vice President for the Forrest County Center. “We have created this event to help our students learn about our program opportunities, tour our facilities, complete steps to enroll, and celebrate their decision to pursue a great career.”

The schedule for the day is as follows:

9 a.m. until 11 a.m. - Business Management Technology, Accounting, Medical Billing and Coding.

12 p.m. until 2 p.m. - Electronics Engineering Technology, Industrial Technology and Biomedical Equipment Repair.

2 p.m. until 4 p.m. - Heating, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration,  Welding, Precision Manufacturing and Machining Technology.

PRCC begins offering Precision Manufacturing and Machining Technology for the first time this fall. The program prepares students to enter into advanced manufacturing careers as machine operators, machinists, and CNC programmers.

“Recruitment, counselors, faculty, administrators, and staff will be available to assist students with tours, financial aid, and creating schedules,” said Dr. James Collum, Career Education Department chair at the FCC.

“The main objective of the day is to help students understand what CTE programs are offered and to assist students with the necessary steps to be accepted into these programs.”

According to Dr. Causey, when students arrive, they will come to Building 3 on the Hattiesburg campus. CDC guidelines will be in place.

“Our staff will be wearing masks and we encourage anyone coming to campus to wear a mask also,” she said. “A temperature kiosk will be set up at the door to check everyone and hand sanitizer stations will be set up as well. We will spread everyone out at least six feet apart to make sure we implement measures to keep everyone safe.”

Added Dr. Collum, “We want to help students learn about the essential skills taught in our career and technical programs, and we want to celebrate these future Wildcats.”

For more information, call 601-554-5505. Fall classes begin on Monday, Aug. 17.

Pearl River crowns new Miss PRCC Gabrielle Lewis

Pearl River crowns new Miss PRCC Gabrielle Lewis

POPLARVILLE, Miss. — Pearl River Community College crowned a new Miss PRCC on Tuesday as Hollie Morgan of Hattiesburg passed the torch to Gabrielle Lewis of Poplarville for her 2020-21 reign. 

“Gabrielle is definitely an amazing inspiration to so many,” Director of Miss PRCC Lauren Baker said. “Just this summer she’s working at our local coffee shop, a summer intern at First Baptist Church of Poplarville and a tutor at Student Support Services. She is a kind, thoughtful person and she has major goals ahead of her. She stays strong to what she believes in, she's respectful of others and she wants to make a difference. I can’t wait to see what is going to do with this amazing title.”

The transition to this crowning came about in a unique way as the 2020 Miss Mississippi competition was postponed to 2021 due to concerns surrounding COVID-19. 

“When we went to orientation for Miss Mississippi in February we had everything lined out and then the very next month everything changed,” Baker said. “The Miss America and Miss Mississippi boards got together and gave our current candidates the opportunity to choose to continue their reign or pass it on and it’s given a great chance for other ladies to step in and be able to fill that role for the next year.”

During Morgan’s year as Miss PRCC she implemented her initiative “Secure Your Insecurities: Confidence Awareness” by visiting schools and speaking to young girls about the importance of gaining confidence. 

“I would just like to thank Pearl River Community College for allowing me to be a representative for this year’s time,” Morgan said. “The opportunities that I’ve had to serve and represent this college have helped me tremendously. It has helped me gain skills that I probably wouldn't have had the opportunity to gain otherwise. I’ve been able to go and speak to girls about confidence and doing that has helped me increase my confidence tremendously and I wouldn't trade that for anything. 

“I hope that Gabrielle, you use your talent and your love for everyone to help other people like I did.”

Lewis competed in the Miss PRCC 2019 scholarship contest and was as an alternate. Lewis is the daughter of John and Michelle Lewis of Poplarville. She attended Poplarville High School and is now working toward her major of foreign language linguistics. Her ambition is to pursue a career as an overseas missionary. Her social initiative focuses on educating future leaders in life skills and financial literacy. She has held several leadership positions during her time at PRCC including Vice President of the Dr. William Lewis Honors Institute and the Vice President of Service for the Iota Mu branch of Phi Theta Kappa. 

“I am very thankful that I get this opportunity to hold the title of Miss PRCC,” Lewis said. “Last year was an amazing opportunity to compete and now getting to carry on the torch that Holly has already carried so well. I’m thankful to Miss. Lauren for approaching me with these opportunities. I’m very thankful for all of you and I love this school. It’s been an amazing blessing in my life so I’m incredibly thankful to get to represent y’all for this next year.”

Lewis’ initiative Educating Our Future Readers will include working to start second language programs in Mississippi. 

“My impact will be initiating second language programs throughout Mississippi,” Lewis said. “I love languages and I’m going to school for linguistics so I’m very excited to get to implement that in our school systems.”

Lewis will go on to compete in the Miss Mississippi competition June 23-26 2021 in Vicksburg.

Pearl River announces Spring 2020 graduation plans

Pearl River announces Spring 2020 graduation plans

POPLARVILLE, Miss. -- Pearl River Community College will hold its Spring 2020 graduation ceremonies at Dobie Holden Stadium on the Poplarville campus July 29 and 30.

The first ceremony on July 29 will include graduates of career or technical programs including allied health and nursing. The July 30 ceremony will include graduates earning Associate in Arts degrees. 

Both ceremonies will begin at 7 p.m. 

“When the spring graduation ceremony had to be postponed, it would have been easy to say that we would not have a ceremony at all this year,” Pearl River Senior Vice President for Instruction/Provost Dr. Martha Lou Smith said.  “For many students, the ceremony is a moment that symbolizes their success. If at all possible, we want the students to have an opportunity to celebrate their accomplishment with family and friends.”

CHECK-IN PROCESS 

All guests should enter the campus through the main entrance. Graduates will check-in for the ceremony at the stadium ticket office. Graduates should arrive no earlier than 5:30 and should check-in no later than 6:15 p.m. 

Students who qualify for honors recognition will be provided cords or stoles at check-in. 

Graduates are limited to four guests. Additional tickets will not be offered due to capacity limitations as a result of COVID-19. All guests, including children of any age, will require a ticket. To avoid group gatherings, guests should not arrive prior to 5:30 p.m. 

Graduates will be given their guest tickets on the day of the ceremony, at check-in. Graduates should coordinate their arrival with their guests to ensure they can hand off their tickets prior to entering the stadium for assembly.

CEREMONY 

After check-in, graduates will hand off their guest tickets and follow directions to enter the stadium’s end zone for assembly. At this time, graduates will complete a card with their contact information for identification purposes. Graduates will then be escorted to their seats as quickly as possible to maintain social distancing. Guests are encouraged to socially distance themselves in the stands as they enjoy the ceremony. 

During the ceremony, a picture will be taken of each graduate. Approximately five days after the ceremony, students will be notified regarding purchasing pictures online. 

For those who cannot attend the ceremony in person, the ceremony will be live-streamed and available at PRCC.edu.

SAFETY MEASURES AND PRECAUTIONS

PRCC will follow CDC recommendations in order to offer a safe ceremony for graduates and guests. Pearl River has ensured that Dobie Holden Stadium allows for social distancing, that surfaces will be disinfected as often as possible, and that antibacterial stations will be available throughout the venue. PRCC strongly recommends the use of face masks while on campus. 

To avoid the spread of germs, graduates will not be handed a diploma cover during the ceremony. An empty diploma cover will be used for pictures to convey that a degree has been awarded. Graduates will pose next to a diploma cover held by Pearl River President Dr. Adam Breerwood for a picture and recognition during the ceremony, but graduates will not touch or be handed the diploma cover. To reduce the exchange of materials, diplomas will also not be issued after the ceremony. Fall and Spring graduates have already received their diplomas in the mail. Summer graduates will receive their diplomas by mail a few weeks after the ceremony. 

Due to the outdoor location of the ceremonies, weather conditions will be closely monitored by PRCC personnel. In the event of a weather system that may impact the ceremony, PRCC will post up-to-date information on its social media pages, including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Pearl River receives $6.67 million for Hancock County workforce training facility

Pearl River receives $6.67 million for Hancock County workforce training facility

Governor Tate Reeves recently announced the U.S. Department of the Treasury has approved a RESTORE Act grant award of $6.67 million to Pearl River Community College to support workforce training in Hancock County.  

The recently approved funds and other leveraged funds will be used for the construction of the Phil Bryant Aviation and Aerospace Workforce Academy, which is strategically located adjacent to Stennis International Airport and Hancock High School. The grant is administered by the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ).

“It is a historic day for Pearl River Community College, Hancock County and our surrounding communities,” PRCC President Dr. Adam Breerwood said. “We extend our sincere gratitude to our Local, State and Federal officials who have provided overwhelming support for this project. Pearl River Community College is committed to expanding the reach of higher education and workforce development opportunities.”

The new center will provide PRCC the necessary ability in Hancock County to deliver technical skills training to students to support existing industry workforce needs and to meet the requirements of future growth sectors such as the aviation and aerospace industry. 

FACILITY DETAILS

The academy will be an estimated 25,000 square feet and will consist of eight classrooms, five labs, lobby with reception area, faculty and staff offices, break room/kitchenette for staff, indoor sitting/vending area for students and an outdoor courtyard sitting area.

The hangar will be an estimated 18,000 square feet and will consist of two classrooms with labs, open hangar area with hands-on lab stations, outdoor covered area for equipment training, lobby with reception area, faculty and staff offices, break room/kitchenette for staff, small vending area for students. The hangar will offer the following programs: Airframe & Propulsion Technology, Unmanned Aerial Systems and Precision Manufacturing.

Every classroom and lab will be designed to be multifunctional and versatile to constantly fit the changing needs of the businesses and industries in this area. Programs listed are the core offerings to start, but they can be changed and added to at any time.

“We have been preparing and anxiously awaiting the final approval needed to begin construction,” Breerwood said. “Governor Reeves’ announcement puts us one step closer to providing a state of the art facility that will serve as an economic engine for the Gulf South Region.” 

 

PROGRAM OFFERINGS

The academy will offer diverse educational opportunities with academic, career and technical and workforce programs. 

Offerings include: Instrumentation, Industrial Electronics Technology, Practical Nursing, Welding & Cutting Technology, Computer Aided Design & Drafting, Business Management Technology, Academic Courses, Workforce Programs, Adult Education/GED.

The programs that will be new to the Hancock location upon its opening are Instrumentation, Airframe & Propulsion Technology, Industrial Electronics Technology, Precision Manufacturing, Computer Aided Design & Drafting and Business Management Technology.

The Aviation Maintenance Technology program is an instructional program that prepares individuals to inspect, repair, service, and overhaul aircraft engine components and systems. This program is designed to prepare the student for the Federal Aviation Administration exams for certification as an Aircraft Maintenance Technician. Industry standards referenced are from the Federal Aviation Regulations, Part 147, Aviation Maintenance Technician Schools (Airframes and Power Plants).

“An important component of an improved economy for the Gulf Coast is workforce training so residents can find better employment and opportunities.  The anticipated need for a skilled workforce in the aviation and aerospace industry fits well with the existing facilities in the area and Pearl River Community College’s mission in Hancock County,” said Chris Wells, MDEQ Interim Executive Director.        

The funds allocated are part of the RESTORE Act’s Direct Component or “Bucket 1.” In the RESTORE Act, 35 percent of the total funds are reserved for Bucket 1 projects and are divided equally among the five Gulf Coast states for ecological and economic restoration. Eligible activities include: restoration and protection of natural resources; mitigation of damage to natural resources; workforce development and job creation; improvements to state parks; infrastructure projects, including ports; coastal flood protection; and promotion of tourism and Gulf seafood.

Pearl River announces plans for fall 2020

Pearl River announces plans for fall 2020

POPLARVILLE, Miss. — Pearl River Community College has announced its plans to safely welcome back students to its Hattiesburg, Poplarville and Waveland locations Aug. 17 for the first day of school. To ensure the safety of students, faculty and staff, PRCC has implemented a number of safety precautions and protocols in compliance with local and state regulations.

“We look forward to welcoming our faculty and students back to our campuses this fall,” PRCC President Dr. Adam Breerwood, said. “The COVID-19 pandemic has created a variety of challenges, however our plan provides students a variety of options for instructional delivery while maintaining the safest environment possible.”

CAMPUS OPERATIONS 

Employees and students on campus will be provided with a PRCC face mask. Individuals will be required to wear a face mask in all buildings and confined spaces if accompanied by anyone. Students and employees are encouraged to be aware of their environment and be considerate of others while moving throughout buildings and the campuses. To encourage individuals to remember the necessity of social distancing, stickers have been placed on floors in high-traffic areas such as: outside elevators, outside of offices where lines might form, and other areas where individuals typically gather in groups. There will be no crowding in small areas. Frequently touched surfaces throughout campuses will be regularly cleaned and disinfected. 

Temperature kiosks and sanitization stations will be available at the entrances of high-traffic areas, as well as specific program entrances. Individuals will be encouraged to use these kiosks daily and self-monitor their own health. Individuals with a temperature exceeding 100.4 degrees or above should leave campus immediately and seek medical attention.

“We are excited to welcome faculty, staff and students back to the Poplarville campus,” Vice President for Poplarville Campus and Student Services Jeff Long said. “We understand there are challenges we must face in the upcoming semester, but we plan to work diligently and in the safest, most responsible way for our employees, students and community. 

“We continue to be dedicated to providing a safe, effective learning environment for our students.”

CLASSROOM EXPECTATIONS 

Pearl River realizes with a variety of class offerings including academic, career and technical, and allied health, the college will have to address the instruction of different classes in unique ways. Classes will allow for social distancing by utilizing a mix of in-class, hybrid, “Hyflex” and online instruction. 

“The administration has made efforts to prepare the college for the return of instructors and students this fall,” PRCC Senior Vice President of Instruction/Provost Dr. Martha Smith said. “Currently, Pearl River is in the process of purchasing technology to incorporate the Hyflex pedagogy. 

“This instructional method will afford flexibility in an ever-changing environment.”

Students will need to regularly check their PRCC student email prior to the first day of classes for specific instructions on how to approach the first week of coursework. Instructors will work with students during that first week to assign online, hybrid and in-class schedules specific to each group’s needs. Instructors and students will wear face coverings and maintain social distancing standards at all times in the classroom.

RESIDENCE HALLS 

Students residing in dormitories for the fall semester will move in over the course of four days prior to the beginning of classes. Those students will be emailed and assigned a specific move-in time window to limit interactions. Students are allowed one person to help them move items into their dorms. 

Prior to students moving in, all facilities will have been cleaned and disinfected. Upon moving in, students will be provided with a PRCC semester starter pack, which includes a face mask and hand sanitizer. Students will wear face masks in buildings and confined spaces if they are with at least one other person. Dorm lobbies will be closed to groups. 

FOOD SERVICES 

Instead of self-service and buffet style dining, the PRCC cafeteria staff will serve food where applicable. Tables, chairs and other frequently touched surfaces will be cleaned and disinfected frequently between uses. Seating capacity in dining areas will be adjusted to allow at least 6 feet of space between tables. To enhance social distancing, a limit will be placed on the number of customers allowed in the dining hall at any given time. Once the capacity is reached, the customers will be able to accept a carry out. Any customers who do not wish to dine in will have access to prepackaged to-go boxes.

WILDCAT DEN BOOKSTORE

Following recommendations by the CDC, the maximum customer capacity will be 30 patrons in the Poplarville bookstore and 15 in the Forrest County Center bookstore. Commonly touched surfaces will be cleaned regularly. Dressing rooms will be closed and customers will not be permitted to try on clothing, hats or uniforms.

Registration will be held in the Technology Building on the Poplarville campus, Building 3 at the Forrest County Center and the main lobby of the Waveland Center from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.
