Pratt Community College Receives Grant from DuPont Pioneer

Pratt Community College is pleased to announce that DuPont Pioneer donated $1,000.00 as part of the DuPont Pioneer sponsorship program. Part of the funds will be used to renovate the greenhouse on PCC’s campus that will be used by both the science and agriculture departments. PCC instructors Lori Montgomery and Trisha Jackson applied for the grant where over 200 applications were received.

“Lori and I worked hard to apply for this grant and are excited to receive it,” said Jackson. “The science and agriculture departments will benefit from the grant.”

Pioneer makes contributions to community-based organizations on behalf of the business and employees. Consideration for outreach grants is given to communities where Pioneer sales representatives, DuPont Pioneer employees and customers live and work and that support quality-of-life initiatives to create an improved, sustainable lifestyle for people worldwide.

PCC is a comprehensive community college, offering an associate’s degree in general education as well as technical education studies and business and industry training. Students may transfer to a 4-year university or enter the workforce upon completion of their degree of training.

PCC offers a variety of courses on campus and online leading to degree completion or transfer to a four-year college. Students experience one-on-one attention from instructors through small class size and personalized advising. PCC transfer students regularly achieve higher grade point averages at state universities compared to non-transfer students. In addition to PCC’s main campus located 70 miles west of Wichita, programs and services are also offered in Winfield, Coffeyville and through the Wichita eLearning Service Center, 7920 West Kellogg, Suite 200.
