JACKSON, Tenn. — An $18 million renovation project is about to get under way at Jackson State Community College. The college in east Jackson will soon break ground on a 46,000 square foot health sciences building. The Tennessee General Assembly approved the expense in the new fiscal year budget, which took effect last Wednesday. This money also will be used for renovating areas of campus not currently in use and modernizing technology. “It gives us a place where we can have state-of-the-art training, and each of these occupational programs will be having new equipment housed in each of these respective areas of the new building,” said JSCC president Dr. Bruce Blanding. Blanding said the groundbreaking for the new building projects could happen as early as January.
