Women's Health Symposium set for Jan. 25
Submitted by braswell on January 6, 2014 - 10:54am
POPLARVILLE - Pearl River Community College will host the annual Women’s Health Symposium on Saturday, Jan. 25, in Crosby Hall on the Poplarville campus.
Featured speaker for the 2014 symposium will be Jean Gatz, who has been bringing her humorous insights into women’s challenges to events for more than 20 years.
The symposium also will include a health fair with free screenings, information booths and a bit of pampering by PRCC cosmetology students.
PRCC started the symposium in 2007 as a way to address the high death rate among women from heart disease, stroke and other health problems, said Dr. Becky Askew, PRCC vice president for planning and institutional research and chair of the symposium. Approximately 200 women attended the first symposium.
“Over the years the participation has grown, and last year more than 400 registered to attend this event,” Askew said. “The 2014 Women’s Health Symposium will once again feature free health screenings and presentations by health professionals and those attending will have the opportunity to ask questions of the health professionals. It is hoped that the symposium will provide the information needed for participants to make lifestyle changes which will lead to healthier and more productive lives.”
The Lower Pearl River Valley Foundation again is grand sponsor for the symposium, helping make the event possible with a grant of $17,000.
Gatz will open the first general session at 8:30 a.m. with “Mama Said There’d Be Days Like This.”
“She comes highly recommended by committee members,” said Brenda Wells, chair of the speakers’ committee and PRCC director of institutional research.
Her presentation will be followed by a panel of area healthcare providers who will talk about their specialities, including family medicine, neurology and obstetrics and gynecology, and answer questions from the audience.
The health fair will start at 10 a.m. and will include blood pressure, blood cholesterol, pulse oximetry, bone density, dental, memory, Lasik, glaucoma and computerized posture screenings along with manicures and paraffin wax treatments, risk assessments, bilateral weight scale assessments and stress management information.
The art walk, featuring the work of artists from South Mississippi, will be open during the health fair as well as before and after the symposium.
While participants enjoy the luncheon at 12 p.m., The Voices will entertain. The Voices is an elite vocal ensemble composed of 12 vocalists selected by audition. Director is LaDona Tyson, PRCC director of choral groups.
Gatz will lead a second general session with “Clean Out the Junk Drawer of Your Life.”
Following her presentation, door prizes will be awarded and the art walk will re-open.
Registration fee is $20 if postmarked by Jan. 17; $25 if mailed after that date. Registration materials can be obtained by telephoning 601 403-1317 or emailing email@example.com.

PRCC works with Rolls-Royce at Stennis
Submitted by braswell on January 10, 2014 - 1:32pm
POPLARVILLE - Pearl River Community College has received a $50,000 grant from the Mississippi Development Authority to support Rolls-Royce at Stennis Space Center.
The grant is being administered by Workforce Education at PRCC.
“Rolls-Royce is doubling their test capacity for their jet engines at Stennis Space Center,” said Troy Teadt, PRCC workforce liaison. “They’re going to be adding approximately 40 new positions out there. We’re assisting them in their expansion to conduct and support the training they need for their new employees.”
The funds are used to send new employees to a training center in Columbus, Ohio; the company’s main test facility in Derby, England; or to training at Stennis, he said.
Rolls-Royce North America opened its first engine test site outside of the United Kingdom at Stennis in 2007 and completed a second test stand in the fall of 2013.
The new jet engine test stand will play a key role in the company’s development of next generation technology that will make important advancements in improving fuel efficiency and reducing emissions, according to the company’s website.
The site conducts noise, crosswind, endurance and other tests on the latest Rolls-Royce civil aircraft engines. The engines include the Trent 1000 that powers the Boeing 787 Dreamliner and the Trent XWB that powers the Airbus A350 XWB.
The company employs more than 150 people at Stennis and at Rolls-Royce Marine Propeller and Waterjet Foundry in Pascagoula, where it machines, manufactures, tests and repairs propellers for the US Navy and Coast Guard. The company also operates a defense regional field office at Naval Air Station Meridian.
The expansion offers jobs for test operators and supervisors along with forklift and man lift operators, Teadt said.
“Everything from the very technical to the support people,” he said.
