The Paris Junior College-Greenville Center, located at 6500 Monty Stratton Parkway, was host to the quarterly meeting of the Greenville Board of Development Plant Managers on Thursday, Sept. 10.

Approximately 40 participants were given a tour of the campus facility and enjoyed a lunch provided by the Greenville High School Culinary Arts students.

Following the lunch, Dr. Pamela Anglin, President of Paris Junior College, gave an overview of workforce training opportunities offered by the college. She said PJC has established effective and quality workforce training programs in air conditioning and heating, drafting (computer aided design) and 3-D prototyping, CAD training, electrical, welding, plumbing and mechatronics (electronics and electromechanical).

“We can deliver quality training in all these fields, as well as in many health occupation fields, and in business technology,” Dr. Anglin said. “PJC can also deliver customized training for employers to upgrade the skills of current employees and to make sure new employees receive the skills need in that particular job. You just have to let us know what you need.”

Dr. Anglin added that Paris Junior College has some scholarship funds, and said Skills Development Funds are available through the Texas Workforce Commission, but the industry partners with the local community college and the community college writes the grant in cooperation with the industry.

“We want to continue to keep PJC accessible and affordable for all students to advance their education and their employment,” she said.

During the question and discussion segment of the program, some managers suggested that a survey be taken to determine the types of jobs and training that might be needed among the manufacturers and businesses in the Greenville region. GBOD Chairman Kelly Gaudreau said they would address that request.
