Enrollment is up once again for Pitt Community College, and the president tells us he's excited about the school's growth.
Pitt Community College has 9,117 students taking credit classes this fall. That's 94 more than were enrolled a year ago.
Once registration for late-start classes is complete, that number could be even higher.
President Dennis Massey spoke at Thursday night's Greenville City Council meeting about a $19.9 million dollar bond for the school, which will help with improvements to PCC as the student body grows.
Massey says, "I think it's a testimony to the need in Pitt County for what we provide and the quality of what we do. We've offered a lot of different programs, and obviously they've been responded to well."
President Massey says the school continues to focus on getting students prepared for the workforce, and mainly, for jobs that are available here in Pitt County.
The bond referendum will be on the November 5th ballot.
