PJC Regents review conceal-carry policy, discusses appointment

Published or Revised June 28, 2017

A draft policy to implement state law allowing conceal-carry at Paris Junior College was reviewed by the Board of Regents Monday evening, June 26, 2017 and plans were made to appoint an at-large regent to represent Lamar County.

The regents were updated on the development of the conceal-carry policy, which was finalized by a committee after comments from April town halls were taken into consideration. The policy will now be reviewed by PJC legal counsel.

With the passage of HB 4276, PJC may now restructure the board to include Lamar County. Discussion centered on taking applications for an at-large regent position to represent the county. Dr. Anglin will finalize a form for applicants to fill out. PJC elections are held in even-numbered years, so the next regent elections will be held in November 2018.
