Jackson theater gets grant
(WOUB) - A decade-long campaign to renovate a Jackson arts center has met success at last.

The Governor's Office of Appalachia has just awarded a 30-thousand-dollar grant for the overhaul of the Markay Cultural Art Center's auditorium.

Lieutenant Governor Lee Fisher announced yesterday that the grant has been awarded to the Southern Hills Arts Council.

The restoration of the arts center is part of the town's revitalization efforts.

According to a news release from the office, refurbishing part of the art center will help preserve a historical structure while attracting more businesses.
