AT&T Foundation Donates Funds To JCJC’s Greene County Center

ELLISVILLE, MS (JONES COUNTY JUNIOR COLLEGE) - Jones County Junior College received a $3,000 grant from the AT&T Foundation to assist with equipment purchases for the new JCJC Learning Center in Greene County.  The funds will specifically be used to buy a digital photocopier for instructors and students at the center.

"We were pleased to be a part of this important project," said Kathleen Shaughnessy, Regional Director AT&T Mississippi.  "Supporting education is one of the main goals of the AT&T Foundation."

The Greene County Learning Center will offer both traditional and online college courses, adult education classes, welding, and pipefitting classes.  When completed later this year, the 17,000 square foot facility will be located adjacent to the Greene County Vocational Center.

"We are very grateful to the AT&T Foundation for their support of our outreach efforts in Greene County. Having partners like the AT&T Foundation strengthens our capabilities to better serve the citizens of Greene County," said Dr. Shannon Campbell, JCJC Dean of Liberal Arts and Industrial Services.

The Greene County Learning Center is a joint effort among the Greene County Board of Supervisors, County Board of Education, and Jones County Junior College. Singing River Electrical Power Association provided a zero-interest loan to assist with funding the project.
