Wow! Thanks to the efforts of local churches and the Southern Miss School of Music, everything that our music students lost is either being replaced or has been replaced.
The symphony office is now located under the water tower off of Fourth Street in the back of campus because our beloved Leech House was destroyed after three threes fell on it.
We simply have the best Physical Plant and School of Music in the South. There are so many stories to tell of people surviving this tornado, that to put it all down would take days. Thanks to everyone who helped us move and paint the new location. There is a reason Jerry Wren is Physical Plant’s February employee of the month. He is simply amazing.
