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.
