Get on the bus
Congratulations to my Alma Mata, Jackson State University again for winning. Now getting ready for their next big game against South Carolina State University in Atlanta on December 18. There will be a bus leaving the Walmart parking lot about 12:30 am on December 18 and leaving Atlanta immediately after the game. I am told a seat is $90 each. To check on seating call Rose McGowan at 601-259-6861. Hope enough people call, reserve and pay for seating, that the bus will stop at Walmart in Forest to pick up and put off passengers.
