Paris Junior College Board of Regents received a report on campus emergency preparedness from Chief of Campus Police Shane Boatwright and PJC President Dr. Pamela Anglin Monday evening.
Boatwright is conducting emergency drills in each building in Paris, Greenville and Sulphur Springs. The drills will continue through March until all employees have participated. He is also walking local police officers through each campus to familiarize themselves with building layouts, as they have time.
Regents recognized five outstanding music students who participated in the Texas Two-Year All State Choir clinic and concert in San Antonio, Feb. 13-16. Attending were Myriah Sillers, Justin Cox, Edward Kelley, Katherine Wiebe and Riley Moore.
“These five students participated in a statewide audition,” said PJC music instructor and Director of Choirs Philip Briggs as he presented them to the Regents. “This is an individual effort on the part of these students. I tell them when they go into it, ‘this is your deal, if you want to do it, you pursue it.’ They are to be commended.”
Nationally recognized clinician Dr. Joey Martin from Texas State University at San Marcos conducted the choir. Some 26,000 teachers and students attended the convention, representing 35 colleges of the 50 Texas colleges. There were 120 total singers.
