$20 million in construction underway at PRCC’s Poplarville campus

POPLARVILLE, Miss. (WDAM) - It’s been a busy summer for building at Pearl River Community College’s Poplarville campus.

About $20 million in new construction is underway, including two new residence halls and a new annex to the Science Building.

Included is the installation of new artificial turf at Dobie Holden stadium.

That’s a $650,000 project that should be wrapped up on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, employees of Pearl River Community College will soon be enjoying a pay raise.

The school’s Board of Trustees has approved a four percent, across-the-board annual raise, which will take effect later this month.

Last year, employees also got a four percent annual raise.
