200. Gulf Coast Academy

After the failure with Bethel Boys and Girls academy and an attempt to restart the business, the Fountains sold the operation to the WWASP group. WWASP had a feared facility on Jamaica named Tranquility Bay. For some reasons the government in Jamaica was tired of the bad press, so they put the management of Tranquility Bay under pressure. WWASP decided to relocate the students from Jamaica to Lucedale, but as always they hired lowpaid employees not suited to handle the job. Also a number of hurricanes had damaged the buildings and neither the Fountains or WWASP had other thing in mind than profit so they didn’t fix the buildings. As result it was chaos with students running away.

The facility did only last a year or two before it shut down.

Anyhow it could not have been fun to be there as a teenager.
