Paris Junior College will host three town hall meetings next week in Paris, Greenville and Sulphur Springs.
The town hall meetings will be held at each location so that students, faculty and staff may have input for PJC’s Campus Carry Policy that will be developed by the Campus Carry Committee. The final draft will be presented to the PJC Board of Regents for approval.
State law, passed by the 2015 Texas Legislature, requires all community colleges to develop a policy allowing for “reasonable restrictions” on locations where guns may be carried on college campuses.
The town halls will be held on Monday, May 1, at the PJC-Sulphur Springs Center beginning at 12:30 p.m. in Room 114; Tuesday, May 2, at the PJC Math and Science Building in Paris, Room 101 & 102 at 12:30 p.m.; and on Thursday, May 4, at the PJC-Greenville Center in Room 116 & 118 beginning at 12:30 p.m.
