Gonzales -   PCS Nitrogen Fertilizer, LP, a division of PotashCorp, has donated $40,000 to the River Parishes Community College Foundation to fund scholarships for area students.

 

“This is another step in an ongoing partnership,” said Garry Hiebert, Human Resources Manager for PCS. “Students in the process technology program and other skills programs at RPCC are our future employees and leaders, and we’re dedicated to investing in them.”

 

During a campus visit, Hiebert saw first-hand the progress RPCC is making on construction of its new Technology Training Center, to which PCS has already contributed.  He presented a check to Chancellor Dr. Dale Doty and Vice Chancellor of Instruction, Dr. Crystal Lee.

 

“This is a great example of the partnerships we need to build this area’s workforce for today and tomorrow and to build a strong economy and a vibrant community,” Doty said. “We are proud that PCS is once again investing in that shared vision, and are extremely grateful for their investment in our students.”

 

“We are looking forward to a healthy future with RPCC,” Heibert said.
