A group mobilizing volunteers received a positive endorsement from the Paris Junior College Board of Regents Wednesday evening, as they renewed a partnership with Red River Valley Retired Senior Volunteer Program for another three years.
RSVP is America’s largest network for people age 55 and older contributing their time and experience to important organizations that improve the community. Since 1971, RSVP has matched the personal interests and skills of seniors with opportunities to help solve significant problems in their communities and meet the needs of their fellow citizens.
“RSVP coordinates an extensive network of volunteers,” said PJC President Dr. Pam Anglin, “They receive a federal grant and local United Way funding in addition to the College’s support to carry out an enormous and beneficial program in our communities.”
In other business, the Regents:
- Combined three actions into one with the approval to privately sell several tracts of land in Paris initially offered for sale at public auction with no takers. The action will put the properties back on the tax rolls.
- Gave final approval to amend the Paris Junior College District Series 2012 Bond remainder of $3.3 million and refinance from a 20-year, variable rate note to a fixed rate, 10-year note.
- Accepted the resignation of Educational Talent Search Advisor Jaci Shovan and the retirement of Campus Police Officer Richard Adams, effective Jan. 15, 2017.
