Debt forces Florence school closure

Posted: Updated:

FLORENCE, MS (WLBT) - Financial problems are forcing the closure of a small ministry school in Florence.

Wesley College is shutting down at the end of the month.

The four-year school is owned by the Congregational Methodist Church and has been open since 1972.

School officials said Wednesday debt accrued up to 2.7 million dollars from building a new dorm and a drop in contributions.
