PCS Nitrogen Fertilizer LP recently donated $40,000 to the River Parishes Community College Foundation to fund scholarships for area students.

“This is another step in an ongoing partnership,” PCS Human Resources Manager Garry Hiebert said. “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 the progress RPCC is making on its new Technology Training Center and presented a check to Chancellor Dale Doty and Vice Chancellor of Instruction 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.

PCS Nitrogen Fertilizer is a division of PotashCorp.
