Ross Collins Float Wins 1st Place! back button

Congratulations to the students and staff of Ross Collins Career and Technical Center for a first place finish in the non-profit division of the Meridian Christmas Parade!

The parade float was designed, built, and decorated by the students of Ross Collins. Students from all programs came together to share what they are learning in their individual programs. The plan required initial design concepts, carpentry, welding, electrical, computer design, marketing, paint, etc. Nearly every program had input into the completion of this grand project.
