HATTIESBURG - A new $450,000 Mississippi Department of Transportation grant will make Pearl River Community College’s Poplarville campus just a little easier to navigate for students and alumni who visit the campus.
“A lot of these schools are trying to get vehicle traffic out of the middle of their campuses,” explained King, calling it a “safety issue.” “We’re just happy to be able to award the funding to them.”
