PARIS, TX -- After a two-million dollar renovation Paris Junior College will be starting the school year with a new look.
This morning dozens of Paris residents and alumni attended PJC's ribbon cutting for the college's W Frank Grimes Center. The building will now house social sciences classrooms and offices.
The Grimes Center was added to the administration building in 1972 and the new renovation includes seven classrooms, two lecture halls and 15-faculty offices.
"We hope it will add to the learning experience and especially with the new technology being able to bring that into every classroom." said PJC President Dr. Pam Anglin.
Anglin says with the renovations, alumni had a hard time finding their way around.
"The ones that came to PJC many years ago, they're reminiscing and they're trying to figure out where their old classrooms were and they can't do that since it looks completely different." said Anglin.
PJC was able to make the renovations of the building due to higher enrollment, allowing the extra tuition funds to pay for the renovations.
