City to help purchase new Sowela site


Assistant Editor

The city is expected to put $100,000 towards the purchase of about 10 acres of land for the site for a new Sowela Technical Community College campus.

Jennings, the Jeff Davis Parish School Board and the parish police jury are all being asked to help purchase the land, which is located next to Jennings High School. The police jury is being asked to give up to $200,000. Meanwhile, the school board in September pledged $100,000 in financial or in-kind support to the proposed $10 million campus.
