WPCTC Students Install Raised Garden Beds at Elementary School

Students in the West Point Career and Technical Center’s Animal and Environmental Science Technology class installed raised beds at West Clay Elementary this spring so students there could plant flowers, fruits and vegetables. A Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi grant helped fund the project.
