PARIS — Mr. and Miss PJC — Matt Johnson of Plano and Lynsee Parish of Yantis — were announced Wednesday night at halftime of the men’s basketball game between Paris Junior College and Panola College.
Johnson is a two-year member of the Dragons baseball team and was recently named to Who’s Who Among Students in American Junior Colleges. After PJC, he will transfer to the University of Pittsburgh to play baseball while continuing his education. The 5-10, 172-pound sophomore plays shortstop.
Parish attends the PJC-Sulphur Springs Center, where she is president of The Blend club and vice president of the two-year college honor society Phi Theta Kappa in Sulphur Springs. After PJC she plans to pursue her degree in education and become a teacher.
Both students were named to the President’s Honor List, a feat requiring a 4.0 GPA. Candidates were nominated by PJC faculty and staff and selected by a vote of the student body. To qualify, they needed to be a full-time student, carry at least 12 semester hours and be a graduating sophomore.
