LOWNDES COUNTY, Miss. (WCBI) — After months of study, Lowndes County schools is close to deciding where to build a centralized vocational education center for its three campuses.

Architect Joey Henderson is doing a final analysis of four potential sites and is expected to report his findings to the Lowndes school board at its meeting next month.

The board has the four undisclosed sites under option.

The district currently teaches vocational classes at individual schools in Caledonia, New Hope and West Lowndes.

Students often have to travel to different schools as far as 20 miles apart if they want to take a specific course. That eats up their time and costs the district additional money for transportation and scheduling.

A centralized center would serve as many as 500 students who could pick among 14 trades and career programs.
