The Mississippi Grammy Museum has received a $100,000 gift from Entergy Mississippi to support the museum’s operations, education outreach and public programs, according to a news release.
The Museum expects to see 15,000 to 20,000 students per year and 80 percent of its focus will be on education, according to Jane Marie Dawkins, manager of education and public programs for the museum, which is to open in November.
“Having this support from Entergy will help us reach as many educators and students as possible and give them all a world-class experience,” Dawkins said. “We hope to inspire students to obtain music industry careers that will progress Mississippi’s musical heritage and continue our success.”
