HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -
Pearl River Community College has recognized several outstanding former students for their career achievements.
Awards were presented to five recipients at the first-ever, Lifetime Achievement Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony at Southern Oaks Home and Garden.
The inductees were accomplished in the fields of business or education. All attended PRCC in the 1950s or early 1960s.
"They have been successful on a big stage around not only the country, but in some cases, the world with their careers," said Dr. William Lewis, president of Pearl River Community College. "More importantly, they have been good citizens," Lewis said.
"It's a great honor that they recognize the fact that I have lived up to what they've taught me," said Sidney Malone, one of the honorees.
In addition to Sidney Malone, inductees included Dr. Thomas Malone, Jim McQueen, Jean Baughman Wessel and the late Henry Thomas.
