The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports (http://bit.ly/2j0ZfYK ) the bond issue passed with 85 percent support Thursday. It needed at least 60 percent support to pass. Official results show 384 people voted in favor of it and 68 voted against it.

Jason McKay, superintendent of Baldwyn Schools, says the vo-tech center will provide opportunities for students to succeed in college and the workforce.

About 40 Baldwyn students take classes at the Prentiss County Vocational Education center, and that costs the Baldwyn school district about $35,000 a year.
