Paris Junior College announced a free concert to those living in the Five County Service District. The state of Texas set a goal that at least 60 percent of Texans ages 25-34 will have a certificate or degree by 2030. Paris Junior College (PJC) is crucial to the achievement of that goal in Northeast Texas. In the interest of drawing even more individuals to PJC, the school has partnered with CMT (Country Music Television) to host a free concert event featuring country artist Morgan Myles on July 29, 2016.
PJC President Dr. Pamela Anglin said music is one component of the event, which aims to inspire individuals to further their education. In addition to incredible performances, the evening will feature a panel of PJC students sharing their personal success stories to inspire others to further their education.
Morgan Myles was recently named a 2016 Artist to Watch by several publications. Myles will share her own experiences with education and her powerful country-soul sound. Joining Myles as the opening act will be Sulphur Springs resident and artist Hannah Kirby, a recent contestant on NBC’s “The Voice”.
The concert event will be held at the Love Civic Center in Paris. A resource fair for individuals and their families will begin at 5:30 p.m. and the concert will start at 6:30 p.m. Tickets for the event are free and children are welcome.
