Construction is winding down as Gulfport High gets ready to start the year at their rebuilt campus. The campus is designed to help students be prepared for whatever field they want to go into, whether that means going to college, entering the military or going directly into the workforce.
Construction crews bustled around Biloxi Junior High School to complete work on the building as teachers moved in their classrooms in preparation for the new school year on Thursday, July 27, 2017. The state-of-the-art 95,000-square-foot building will hold up to 1,300 7th and 8th graders.
Marion Langdon, 72, of Long Beach started her college career in 1963 but stopped studying in 1971. She returned to the University of Southern Mississippi Gulf Park campus in 2007 and 10 years later got a degree. She said they made her get a degree because she had too many credits.
