Workforce class roofs Picayune park pavilion

  POPLARVILLE – A Pearl River Community College workforce construction class recently roofed a pavilion at Picayune’s Mildred Mitchell Park.
  “Actually working on a project is a much more valuable experience than being in a classroom atmosphere,” instructor Jesse Walker said.
  Walker’s drafting students designed the pavilion during the spring 2016 semester.
  The project was a collaboration between the City of Picayune, Collier Construction and PRCC. The Pearl River County Homebuilders Association coordinated and funded it.
  Walker will be teaching a basic carpentry workforce training class during the spring semester. The class will meet from 4:30 to 9:30 p.m. Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, beginning Jan. 9. Cost is $150.
  For more information on the class, contact Cheryl Frierson at 601 403-1113 or   

Justin Dement of Baxterville, a student in the Pearl River Community College workforce construction class, works on the roof of the pavilion at Mildred Mitchell Park in Picayune.     

Each community college president is asked to bring two (2) wrapped door prizes, minimum value of $50 each. We will have a station set up at the conference for you to drop off the door prizes.

Each community college is asked to provide name tags for their Board members, administration, and staff attending the conference.
