Pearl River Valley Electric Power Association donated a truck for use in the Apprentice Electric Lineman program at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College’s George County Center. The donation will allow instructors to train using the types of equipment students will have to operate in their future careers.
Dr. Lisa Rhodes, George County Center administrative dean, said, “This truck will provide hands-on training for our students in the Electric Lineman program. This type of training is incomparable and gives these students the education and skills they need to be prepared to enter the workforce. We truly thank everyone at Pearl River Valley Electric for this generous donation and for their investment in the future of these students. It is because of donations like this that MGCCC programs are so successful.”
