MOUNT VERNON — Some major changes are on the horizon for the Knox County Career Center. Following an executive session to discuss the matter, the school board on Thursday voted to purchase the Mount Vernon Baptist Temple property off Yauger Road with the purchase contract contingent upon appraisal and other legal requirements. Board members Margie Bennett and Jody Goetzman voted against the measure.

    This is exciting news for the Career Center. Great location for great programs.
    Is the Baptist Temple leasing out some of the space or are they leaving the space. The article doesn’t go into much detail about the Temple.
