“Our mission is to recruit perspective students and assist them as they transition to college. We have created an exciting recruitment plan for 2020 and look forward to growing our Wildcat family.”

New to the Wildcat Family, Gleber is looking forward to leading the team and reaching out into the communities Pearl River serves.

“I’m thankful for the trust Dr. Amy Townsend, Dr. Adam Breerwood, and the Board of Trustees have placed in me to lead the Office of Recruitment at the great academic institution of Pearl River Community College,” Gleber said. “I am looking forward to continuing the great work already being done within our district schools and expanding our recruiting efforts in PRCC’s Dual Enrollment, Workforce Education and Adult Education programs.”
