Community is what keeps Jimenez going. Every week, she posts photos for family and friends on social media of the welding projects she’s working on.PCC has done it again — and just in time for its Earth Week celebration.

The college was notified on April 12 that it has been re-certified as a 2016 Tree Campus USA. PCC was the only community college in the country out of last year’s five recipients to receive the 2015 Tree Campus USA award. Created by the Arbor Day Foundation, the honor recognizes PCC’s exemplary commitment to the selection, protection and sustainable management of the thousands of trees that enrich its 1,500 square-mile footprint.

PCC offers this limited open forum as an extension of the respectful, well-reasoned discourse we expect in our classroom discussions. As such, we welcome all viewpoints, but monitor comments to be sure they stick to the topic and contribute to the conversation. We will remove them if they contain or link to abusive material, personal attacks, profanity, off-topic items, or spam. This is the same behavior we require in our hallways and classrooms. Our online spaces are no different.
