LAUREL, MS (WDAM) -A new community information and research area at a Laurel church has been dedicated in memory of a longtime church pastor.

A computer resource center at Calvary Baptist Church has been named in honor of the Rev. L. C. Collins, Sr.

He was pastor of the church for 20 years.

He died in 1983.

Family and church members hosted a dedication ceremony Saturday morning.

“Those who are a little afraid of the internet, they can actually come out and learn how to type, learn how to go online and maybe get a Facebook account or something of that nature,” said Valerie Collins-Pogue, daughter of Rev. Collins.

A voter registration workshop was held after the ceremony.
