MERIDIAN, Miss. (AP) - Meridian Community College is tripling its capacity of a workforce training program with the dedication Friday of a new welding technology center.

Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves will speak at the 10 a.m. dedication on the MCC campus in Meridian.

The $1.5 million, 11,500-square foot metal structure, located on the north side of the Workforce Development Center, was donated to MCC by college trustee Tommy Dulaney. Dulaney has served on the college’s board for 31 years.

Funding for equipment and additions was provided by Lauderdale County.

MCC President Scott Elliott says the center will be named “The Structural Steel Services Welding Technology Center” in honor of the local steel fabrication company owned by Dulaney.
