Work should begin within the next few months on a new Pensacola State College truck driving training facility in Santa Rosa County.
Recently, more than 50 Pensacola State student-athletes and coaches came to the rescue of local families whose homes and properties were devastated by Hurricane Sally.
U.S. News and World Report has ranked Pensacola State College among the nation’s best postsecondary institutions in its 2021 annual report.
In the immediate days after the storm, the PSC Pensacola campus was a staging area for the State of Florida’s emergency central fueling station.
(But new books by Jones are on the way)
Pensacola State College English instructor Jamey Jones’ tenure as the seventh Poet Laureate of Northwest Florida ends in October after a two-term, six-year span as the region’s poetry ambassador.
But who knows? Maybe a future poet laureate is being taught by Jones right now. (The Poet Laureate of Northwest Florida is chosen by the West Florida Literary Federation.)
Jones, who teaches poetry, English composition and American and contemporary literature, has the teaching pedigree for sure. In 2019 Jones, who joined the College’s faculty in 2013, was inducted into the PSC Academy of Teaching Excellence.
But even though he “teaches” poetry, Jones admitted that art can be nurtured, but rarely properly “taught.”
