Trustees created 2 temporary committees to consider status and policies and (1.) work extensively on aims, purposes and program plans for PMSS for next 25 years, and (2.) consider Board structure, By-laws, and relationship with Berea College. There was a public meeting at PMSS 12-28-86 to formulate aims and goals for the future of the School.

The reduced Environmental Education staff continued to serve school groups coming to PMSS campus for one-day or week-long programs.

The Harlan Co. Board of Education assigned some students working in (and paid by) the JTPA program to work under the supervision of PMSS staff during the summer.

500 raspberry and 200 thornless blackberry plants were set out.

Re-wiring of West Wind & installation of smoke detectors in all rooms was completed.

A Laurel House conference room was established in the former Co-op store room and Gift Shop room. The conference room was furnished by Bill and Fern Hayes in memory of Commander William Steven Hayes.
