April 4, 2017 -

MERIDIAN, Miss. (AP) — Meridian Community College will hold a public ceremony for the dedication of the Riley Workforce Development Center.

The Meridian Star reports the ceremony will take place 10 a.m. Friday at the center, which is at the site of an old Wal-Mart building on Highway 19 North. Governor Phil Bryant is scheduled to be the keynote speaker.

The 81,000-square-foot facility has been open for use since the end of January. It includes a 12,000-square-foot welding shop, 15 classrooms and five shop laboratories.

According to a statement from the school, the total cost of the project was $7.2 million. It was paid for in part by two major grants of $3.7 million and $1.5 million.

The ceremony will also recognize organizations that helped make the center possible, like the Meridian-based Riley Foundation.
