Michael W. Mangum – Former Jackson County Board of Supervisors
The Jackson County board of Supervisors strongly supports the MS Maritime Museum efforts to establish the old Pascagoula High School Math & Science Building and Band Hall into a museum that will tell the story and preserve the rich maritime history of the MS Gulf Coast.
The Maritime Board has made a significant investment to purchase this property that is on the National Register. Fun raising efforts are ongoing and construction will bring needed temporary jobs.
This museum will serve several purposes of preserving our rich maritime history and to educate the many visitors from all over the region and the local school children about the history and career opportunities within the Maritime Industry.
