President's Welcome

Pierpont President Dr. Johnny Moore A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT


Welcome to Pierpont Community and Technical College! We are delighted that you are visiting our website.

As President of Pierpont Community & Technical College, let me share with you why I feel that Pierpont is an excellent choice for you to continue your higher education experience.

Pierpont is part of the state’s growing high technology corridor with a metro area of about 250,000 residents. The college strives to enhance the quality of life for people of North-Central West Virginia through accessible, comprehensive, responsive, workforce-related training, and quality higher education opportunities.

In the spirit of our mission, our administration, faculty and staff are committed to providing opportunities for learning, training, and further education that enrich the lives of individuals and promote the economic growth of our 13 county service region and state. Pierpont offers programs for career/technical education and grants the degrees of Associate in Arts, Associate in Science, or Associate in Applied Science after two years of study, as well as advanced skill sets and one year certificates. And, with nearly 40 programs to choose from, you will find the education and career path that is right for you. Whatever program you choose, our faculty and staff stand ready to assist you in making your educational dreams become a reality.

I invite you to visit our campuses to see Pierpont Community & Technical College for yourself. On Locust Avenue in Fairmont, WV we share a beautiful 120-acre campus with Fairmont State University. With this partnership, Pierpont offers students the affordability of a community college with the amenities of a university. We are pleased to offer state-of-the-art training at the newly built Pierpont Advanced Technology Center, off of the I-79 high technology corridor. Programs and training are also available at the Robert C. Byrd Aerospace Education Center, the Caperton Center, and in Braxton, Lewis, and Monongalia Counties.

Come and see why Pierpont is a very special place to be.

Johnny M. Moore, Ph. D.
