State Aid

Posted 12.15.09 at 11:56 AM

Title: State Aid

How times have changed. In 1941-42, Paris Junior College received a total of $22,358.30, or $49.21 per student from “state aid,” as a result of the bill introduced by Sen. A. M. Aikin, Jr., who was an ex-student of PJC. In the 47th Legislature, this would give $50 per capita for full-time students as of Nov. 1, 1941, enrolled in junior colleges. It was anticipated that during 1942-43, enrollments would be declining.
This was the second year that PJC would receive aid under the bill passed by the 47th Legislature and signed by Gov. W. Lee O’Daniel.
