Rahman Johnson, Artists Hall of Fame Inductee
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Mayor Lenny Curry and Edward Waters College President Nat Glover on Wednesday announced a multimillion-dollar investment that would bring new dorms and a community athletic field to the college's Northwest Jacksonville campus.
Curry said he's included more than $8 million in next year's budget proposal, which he'll unveil later this month.
The athletic facility will allow the EWC football team to play on a home field for the first time. The facility and a running track will also be available for community use. (Story)
