A message from Dr. Gregory Powell


Dear Panola College Community,

We know that many of you are experiencing a wave of emotion during this difficult time. The tragic events in Minneapolis, Minnesota and the senseless death of George Floyd have opened a portal for conversations around race and justice in America, even if these conversations are difficult.

As we strive to navigate through a year plagued with difficulty – a global pandemic, economic hardships, racial injustice and tension – Panola College is committed to creating a supportive environment for all students, faculty, and staff. During this time, we must come together and address the complex issues that our society faces.

Panola College is an equal opportunity institution that is home to a diverse population. This is a great strength that comes with a great responsibility. During this challenging time, we call upon our campus community to come together with compassion and understanding as we move forward. We must have tough conversations and listen to each other. At Panola College, we believe that regardless of background every person in our community must be treated with the respect and compassion they deserve.


Dr. Gregory Powell
