Downtown Association looking to renovate old high school

The Historic Hattiesburg Downtown Association is trying to raise $100,000 this month to help renovate the old Hattiesburg High School.

So far the group has raised over $10,000. They are calling it the Cornerstone Campaign, and they are trying to get 1,000 people to donate $100 each.

The association needs $1.8 million to pay for all the renovations needed. Campaign organizers say graduates of the old high school are the most excited.
