Utica Institute Museum to officially open
U.S. Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Mississippi) will be on hand today for the official opening of the Utica Institute Museum at Hinds Community College’s Utica Campus.
A Bolton native, Congressman Thompson is a 1965 graduate of Hinds Agricultural High School, which was on the Utica Campus until it closed in 2014.
The Utica Institute Museum grand opening and ribbon-cutting is at 2 p.m. Thursday. Because of expected rain, the program will be held in the Walter Washington Amphitheater with the ribbon-cutting, tour and reception across the street at the museum.
Media parking is being provided on Union Drive. Campus Police will direct you.
