Six alumni of Pearl River Community College have been recognized for outstanding career accomplishments. Thursday night, they were inducted into the PRCC Lifetime Achievement Hall of Fame at Southern Oaks and Gardens.

Inductees included businessman L.D. "Brink" Brinkman, retired bank officer Verlene Cole, former Mississippi Insurance Commissioner George Dale, retired petroleum geologist Floyd Furr, businessman Mickey Hudson and retired FDIC executive Louis A. Hurst, Jr. 

"We chose to do this a few years ago to get this started to honor our graduates who have really achieved on a big stage," said Dr. William Lewis, president of PRCC.

"Many of these people have achieved not just locally, not just state-wide, but nationally and internationally as well," he said.

This was the 2nd year for the Lifetime Achievement Hall of Fame awards.
