Three junior colleges and a university in Mississippi have received funds from money raised by former Presidents Bush and Clinton to benefit victims of Hurricane Katrina.
Pearl River and Mississippi Gulf Coast community colleges each received $750,000 — the maximum amount a two-year institution could receive — and Jones County Junior College received $400,000.
The University of Southern Mississippi received $1.5 million — the maximum available to four-year institutions. Officials from William Carey College — also a grant recipient — said they were unsure about the exact amount they would receive.
