Paris Junior College continues to be below the state average on tuition and fees, the PJC Board of Regents were informed at their meeting this week.
“This time of year I share with you an update on tuition and fees from the state,” said PJC President Dr. Pam Anglin, as part of her report to the regents. In comparison with the state average of community colleges, PJC is lower on in-district, out-of-district, and non-resident tuition and fees.
In other good news, a good audit report on PJC and the PJC Memorial Foundation was presented by Andy Reich of McClanahan Holmes. Reich reported that there was a clean opinion on the federal and state funding audits as well.
“You have a clean opinion on your financial statements,” said Reich. “So another good year; I don’t know how many years that is in a row, but quite a few.”
In other business, the Regents:
• Received the monthly financial report showing PJC remains in a strong cash position.
• Adopted the Investment Policy – CAK (Local) with a minor change necessitated by legislative action.
• Renewed approval of the Authorized Brokers/Dealers for Investments. The list provides entities with which PJC may invest funds.
• Approved the Texas Association of School Board’s Local Policy Update to the governing policies of the college.
• Adopted a City of Paris easement for a new water line along Clarksville Street.
• Accepted the employment of Educational Talent Search Advisor Jessica Newman and the retirement of Computer Programmer Elaine Anderson.
