More than 50 people from the college community attended the 2014 PCC Day at the Capitol in Salem on Tuesday, Feb. 25 to talk one-on-one with state legislators. For these attendees that included students and staff it was an opportunity to meet elected officials and lend a voice to the importance of funding higher education. The day included a luncheon at the Salem Convention Center where speakers Jeremy Brown (PCC president) and Joe Gallegos (House Representative for District 30 and PCC alum) talked about how PCC gives people the chance to earn a college education, get good jobs and achieve their dreams. From there students and staff broke up into teams and visited with their own representatives and senators at the Capitol building in the afternoon.
