Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College held ribbon-cutting ceremonies for the Early Childhood Education (ECE) Center and New Entrance Boulevard on the Perkinston Campus December 16.
“We are excited to open this incredible new childcare facility and provide better, more convenient access to our campus,” said Dr. Ladd Taylor, Perkinston Campus vice president. “The college has continued to expand opportunities for students, employees, business and industry partners, and individuals throughout our four-county district, providing them with the education and training they need to further their careers.”
The ECE Center provides a facility for training students in the Early Childhood Technology program and a daycare for pre-school children of full-time college students.
The New Entrance Boulevard provides access to the Perkinston Campus and Wire Road West from Highway 49 South, allowing students and other drivers to bypass traffic around Perkinston Elementary School as well as the train tracks that run south of the college campus.
