GULFPORT — After a decade of planning, Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College officials will cut the ribbon Friday on the nearly 51,000-square-foot Hospitality and Resort Management Center.
MGCCC president Mary Graham tells The Sun Herald the state-of-the-art facility will provide a hands-on learning environment for students. The community college plans to work with Coast hospitality and resort industries to provide the education and training students need for their workforces.
The two-story building will be used as both a training facility for students and as a convention, conference, workforce training and special event center.
The $10.7 million in funding for it came through various sources, including state bond funds, an Economic Development Administration grant and district bonds.
