POPLARVILLE, MS (WDAM) -

This is a news release from Pearl River Community College 

Pearl River Community College English instructor Marjory Thrash has been named the MS Virtual Community College Instructor of the Year. 

Thrash, who started teaching online in 2000, received the award and $1,000 at the Creating Futures Through Technology conference in Biloxi. 

She was one of the first instructors in the state to teach online. 

“ I have taught beginning and intermediate English, English composition 1 and 2, traditional grammar and American literature 1and 2,” she said. “For online success, administration, support staff and faculty must all have the souls of true teachers. We do whatever is necessary to get information to our students. That happened with chalkboards and slide rules, and it happens today in online instruction.” 

Thrash and her husband, Bobby Thrash, have been at PRCC since 2002.

    Though she stands at just 4-foot-10, Aimee Durn is a force for the Jones County Junior College women's soccer club. The short freshman from England is a big reason the Lady Bobcats are 5-0-1. "They say big things come in small packages and that's very true for Aimee," said tenth-year JCJC women's soccer coach Dolores Deasley.
