The Mississippi Department of Archives and History has received $50,000 from the Nissan Foundation to support field trips to the Two Mississippi Museums.
“We are grateful to the Nissan Foundation for their support of our field trip program,” MDAH Director Katie Blount said. “School children are one of our most important audiences. The foundation’s generosity will help more students experience what Governor William Winter called the state’s largest classroom.”
The funds will be used to cover costs such as admission, travel, and on-site lunches for students. Over its 30-year history, the Nissan Foundation has awarded nearly $14 million to numerous organizations across the country that work to promote respect and understanding among cultural and ethnic groups.
