POPLARVILLE - The offices of the Pearl River Community College Development Foundation and Alumni Association have been named in honor of Verlene Cole of Oak Grove.
College officials announced the decision Dec. 7 at a dinner sponsored by the Development Foundation.
“She means the world to us,” said foundation director Ernie Lovell.
Cole, 85, was a Pearl River student in 1949-51.
“You will live on our campus forever,” PRCC President Dr. Adam Breerwood told Cole. “Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”
The announcement took Cole by surprise.
