Selena Thornton named 2020 Alumnus of the Year by PCC’s Alumni Partnership

An emotional Thornton accepted the 2020 PCC Alumnus of the Year award, saying, “PCC has been so instrumental in my life … I came into the PCC, enrolled in school, and my life changed... At PCC I found people that believed in me when I didn’t believe in myself. That grew into a community of people that I’ve grown to love in Caswell County.”

PCC nursing grads pinned in parade formation

The nurse pinning ceremony is a traditional rite of passage for nursing school students, but restrictions on mass gatherings and social distancing rules made it difficult to carry out the traditional events this year. PCC instead held a drive thru option for students and family members to celebrate this great accomplishment.

4/8/20 Update on Parking Lot WiFi Locations

Due to the stay-in-place order, Piedmont Community College is not able to offer computer labs for students without internet access. To help combat this issue, we've worked with the community to identify locations with GUEST access in business and church parking lots. In addition, PCC has added two hot spot locations on the Person County Campus and one hot spot location on the Caswell County Campus. As new locations are identified, they will be added to the list.
