PCCUA receives Workforce Development and Program Expansion Grant Award


    Phillips Community College of the University of Arkansas (PCCUA) has been awarded a Workforce Development and Program Expansion Grant in the amount of $58,621, which will be used to further its adult education services in Lee County.

    In making the announcement, Christina Sanderlin, director of Adult Education at PCCUA, said the grant would be used for the College’s new location in Marianna (Lee County) to provide an updated classroom with new computers and a smartboard, and to hire a teacher and paraprofessional for this location.

    “We are very pleased and excited to receive this grant,” said Sanderlin. “With this money, we will be able to provide a better learning environment and offer longer hours for our students to receive services throughout the week.”

    PCCUA currently offers free classes at the Lee High School Parent Center at 523 Forest Avenue in Marianna from 5-7 p.m. each Tuesday and Wednesday and from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. on Saturdays.
