Patsy Taylor honored for 50 years of service to PCSD

The Prentiss County School Board of Education recognized Ms. Patsy Taylor for 50 years of service to the students of the Prentiss County School District. Ms. Taylor was honored by her family, friends, and co-workers during the April school board meeting. Early in her career, Ms. Taylor taught at Thrasher Attendance Center for one year and then the remaining 49 years at Marietta Elementary School. Over the last 50 years, Ms. Taylor has taught special education, second grade, and 5th/6th English.
Ms. Taylor currently serves the teachers, parents, and students at Marietta Elementary School as the school MSIS Coordinator. We are looking forward to her continued professional services to the Prentiss County School District. 

Emergency Broadband Benefit

The Emergency Broadband Benefit Program is a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) program that provides a temporary discount on monthly broadband bills for qualifying low-income households. If your household is eligible, you can receive:

  • Up to a $50/month discount on your broadband service and associated equipment rentals
  • Up to a $75/month discount if your household is on qualifying Tribal lands
  • A one-time discount of up to $100 for a laptop, tablet, or desktop computer (with a co-payment of more than $10 but less than $50)

Only one monthly service discount and one device discount is allowed per household. To receive the connected device discount, consumers need to enroll in the EBB Program with a participating provider that offers connected devices (not all service providers offer device discounts). The service provider will provide the discount to the consumer.

The program will end when the fund runs out of money, or six months after the Department of Health and Human Services declares an end to the COVID-19 health emergency, whichever is sooner.
