Ed Butler (l), executive director of the Mississippi Council on Developmental Disabilities and council chair Dr. Jane Taylor were at the T.K. Martin Center recently to be briefed on an MCDD-funded project. Rehabilitation engineer Andy Whetsone (second from left) and engineering student Jacob Davis showed the visitors a battery-powered car that will be adapted as an accessible short-commute vehicle for those who are unable to drive vehicles with standard adaptations.
