PJC student success earns state, national attention

Published or Revised September 19, 2017

The dramatically increased success rate of Paris Junior College students has drawn both state and national attention, including a nomination invitation for a prestigious national award, the PJC Board of Regents heard Monday evening.

One of the Student Achievement Targets set for 2015 through 2020 is the growth in graduation rate, according to the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS). Since 2011, PJC’s graduation rate has increased 33 percent.

“Theses targets are required by our accrediting agency and the federal Department of Education,” said PJC President Dr. Pam Anglin. “The targets were chosen by looking at success points PJC is funded through the State of Texas, and IPEDS data such as the graduation rate.”

The regents also approved the 2017 tax rate of .085 per $100 valuation.

“That’s what we promised the voters,” said PJC Board of Regents President Curtis Fendley.
