ELLISVILLE, MS (WDAM) - A two-year-old Jones County Junior College course on starting a small business is so popular that the college is expanding it to two new locations. Operation JumpStart classes are being added in Hattiesburg and Waynesboro. 

The six-week, hands-on course on starting or expanding a small business teaches essential skills entrepreneurs need in business planning and preparation. 

Classes will be held on Monday and Thursday nights beginning March 23 at Hattiesburg's Woodall Center at 906 Sullivan Drive and at JCJC's Wayne County Learning Center in Waynesboro.  

"Small businesses are our backbone of Mississippi, so Waynesboro, Hattiesburg, there's such a need for people who are interested in the idea," said Crystal Nail, director of the Entrepreneur Center at Jones County Junior College.  

Nail says classes may also expand to a third location in Bay Springs.
