McClellan. Looking on are Anniston Mayor Chip Howell, standing, left, and JPA Executive Director Dan Cleckler. JSU will provide an addition $100,000 in in-kind services, for a total purchase amount of $250,000. According to Dr. Meehan, the University "has a vision of seeing that Center as it once was -- bustling with children." JSU may have the 19,000 square-foot facility open as soon as 2003, staffed by 20 full-time employees providing children life skills and instructional skills. Dr. Shelia Ann Webb, dean of the College of Education and Professional Studies, (not pictured) said education majors will receive practical experience assisting the Center's children.
