Retired Air Force Gen. Lloyd “Fig” Newton, a Jasper native, is one of the founding members of Polaris Tech.
“I strongly encourage anyone with children to learn about what we are offering at Polaris Tech Charter School,” Newton said. “We are focused on the future and on helping each child succeed in a career and-or in college. It’s an exciting time and we’ll be opening up the application process in a few months, so this is an ideal opportunity to learn what we’re all about.”
The school will be located in Ridgeland at the site of the old Ridgeland hospital on Grays Highway.
