Mississippi State University and East Mississippi Community College are receiving gifts of $250,000 each from Yokohama Tire Corporation, announced at a Sunday press conference in West Point the night before Yokohamaâ€™s groundbreaking ceremony for its new Clay County plant.
Yokohama spokesperson Theresa Palang said the company routinely invested in the communities where it operated, and it planned to continue seeking avenues for such investments in Clay County and the surrounding region. These investments often prove mutually beneficial for the recipients and Yokohama, she said, and company officials hoped for these gifts to be no different.
