  POPLARVILLE - Approximately 300 high school and adult education students toured Pearl River Community College’s career technical programs on Tuesday, April 5.
  The annual Career Technical Education Day gives students a preview of the various one- and two-year programs offered by PRCC.
  Students from Forrest County Agricultural High School, Bassfield, Hattiesburg, Picayune Memorial, Poplarville and Prentiss high schools attended along with students enrolled in PRCC’s adult education program.
