USM second stop on college cotton manufacturing/marketing project

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Dozens of business students from across the Magnolia State were at The University of Southern Mississippi Friday for the second part of a project to learn more about manufacturing and merchandising opportunities using cotton.

A Cotton Coterie at Scianna Hall gave students a chance to hear from professionals in apparel manufacturing, small business development and fashion show management.

It is all part of Mississippi Cotton: Weaving Futures 2015, which is a partnership among USM, Mississippi State University and Delta State University.

It is funded by the Importer Support Program of the Cotton Board and Cotton, Inc.

The project began at Delta State and will conclude next Month at Mississippi State.
