Panola  County citizens will decide whether to approve a Long Range Facility Improvement Master Plan for Panola College in a special bond election on May 11.

Early voting has been in progress for a week, with voters arriving at the Magnolia Room in the Martha Miller Administration Building to cast their ballots.

If approved by voters, the $35 million bond will provide a new Science and Health Sciences Building, a new Student Life Center, complete renovation of the Roy Monk Building and the Raymond Rhea Building, renovation of the Phoebe Sue Perlman Building, the Fitness Center and the Arthur Johnson Gymnasium. Additional parking areas are also included in the proposal.

Panola County citizens approved the creation of the college district in 1947, and passed a bond issue in 1948. Since that time, no bonds have been issued for the college, which celebrated its 65th anniversary in 2012. The State of Texas does not pay for new construction or renovation to existing community college facilities.

Early voting continues through May 7th. On Election Day, May 11, voters may cast their ballots from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. in the Phoebe Sue Perlman Student Center Ballroom on the college campus.
