The high school construction class at the Pearl/Rankin Career and Technical Center on Hinds Community College’s Rankin Campus built a connecting sidewalk at the Muse Center with the help of Mississippi Materials Company.

MMC donated the concrete for the project, enabling students to experience hands-on learning but also complete a much-needed walkway.
