Mississippi to get shipbuilding academy

Jackson County, Mississippi, is to get a Shipbuilding and Metal Trades Academy.

Governor Haley Barber made the announcement at a Gulf State Shipbuilding Consortium conference in Mobile on Friday. He said that $20 million requested for the project by the Jackson County Board of Supervisors would be Katrina recovery funding that would come to the county from the federal government via the Mississippi Development Authority.

The academy will be located on the Pascagoula campus of MGCC (Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College.)
