Recently, the Mississippi State EcoCAR received an impressive new paint job, completed by Barnett’s Body Shop in Jackson, MS. Shortly after the vehicle returned to campus the team began making plans to reveal its new look to the public. The perfect venue for this reveal was the 2011 Cotton District Arts festival which took place April 23rd. Not only were we thrilled to give the public the opportunity to see our new paint job but we were also very excited about enlisting the help of a few leaders in our area. Congressman Gregg Harper, Mayor Parker Wiseman, Mayor Will Hill, and Dean Sarah Rajala were all there to help us reveal our vehicle and to show support for our team. With over 20,000 people in attendance, the Cotton District Arts Festival was a great place to show off the terrific work done by Barnett’s and tell many people more about our team.
