According to an annual report done by The Higher Education Coordinating Board for the Governor’s Office and the Legislative Budget Board, Paris Junior College is in good financial health.
“It’s an assessment of the overall financial health of the 50 community colleges in Texas,” said PJC President Dr. Pam Anglin. “It’s done to identify potential financial stress and there were only 24 colleges meeting all the thresholds and PJC is one of those 24. We met all seven indicators; I was very pleased to see this.”
In other business, the Regents:
- Received a financial report from Comptroller Keitha Carlton showing PJC to be in a stable position with revenues exceeding expenses.
- Approved the audit engagement letter for McLanahan and Holmes to conduct the annual audit of the College and the PJC Memorial Foundation.
