Pruden Center valuable resource

Published 9:11 pm Wednesday, February 11, 2009

Did you know that the Pruden Center has 472 students enrolled in various programs ranging from utility/heavy construction and cosmetology to auto service technology and culinary arts. Did you know that the students attending the Pruden Center have the opportunity to gain skills there that so many people are paying high dollar to proprietary schools for? If not, that’s the message Corey McCray, executive director of the center, is trying to get out to the public.

McCray and the center are making an effort to inform not only the public, but prospective students and current students by holding its annual open house on Feb. 19, from 5 to 8 p.m.

The open house is a way to show off the facility and the instruction that takes place within its walls, much of which doesn’t get its deserved praise.

Suffolk is fortunate to have the Pruden Center. Many communities are seeking out similar institutions to help promote future workforces. Suffolk doesn’t have to look any further than down the road on Pruden Boulevard. If you aren’t familiar with the Pruden Center, take the time to learn by attending this year’s open house.
