Pearl River Community College has received a $286,270 grant to upgrade the school's Wellness Center and construct an outdoor walking track.

The grant comes from the Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi Foundation.

It will be used to replace all of the fitness equipment in the center and build a walking track behind the Wellness Center/Nursing Building.

"Their equipment needed to be replaced," said Sheila B. Grogan, executive director of the Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi Foundation. "It was worn out and they had difficulty finding replacement parts for their equipment," Grogan said.

"This gives us a great opportunity to provide new equipment, to do some updating of our facilities," said Dr. William Lewis, president of Pearl River Community College.

PRCC opened its Wellness Center in 1996.
