Scott Emerline – from Peace Corps volunteer to PSC recruiter

Don’t misunderstand. Scott Emerline really enjoys his new position as a Pensacola State College recruiter. But he would love to go back to the Southeast Asian country of Myanmar.

Emerline, a University of West Florida alumnus and English major, joined the PSC team in October. But for the first three months of 2020, Emerline lived in Myanmar working as a Peace Corps volunteer teaching English to, mostly, children. He arrived at the beginning of the year but in March, well, COVID-19 happened. Continue Reading Scott Emerline – from Peace Corps volunteer to PSC recruiter

The cultural flame lit by Elvis Presley has never been extinguished, even 45 years after his death. Still, that flame hasn’t burned this bright for years.

A new generation has discovered the music of the heralded “King of Rock ‘n’ Roll” largely due to the new acclaimed Baz Luhrmann film, “Elvis.” Some talented members of this young generation will perform some of Presley’s best-known music in the jukebox musical “All Shook Up,’’ which is the 2022 PSC Summer High School Onstage Workshop Production, July 22-24 and July 29-31 in the Ashmore Auditorium on the Pensacola campus.  Continue Reading Need more Elvis?
