Kaskaskia College is pleased to announce Dr. Jim and Roxie
Underwood of Centralia have pledged $2,500.00 towards the new KC Education
Center in Nashville.
According to Dr. Underwood, “"We
are proud to personally support the KC Nashville Education Center expansion
project. Through this new facility KC will be able to provide expanded
educational offerings in serving Washington County with helping students gain
the skills and knowledge for enhanced careers. We also know
that financial support is needed from the private sector for making this
project a reality. This is truly an investment in the future."
As part of its capital campaign master plan, Kaskaskia
College plans to expand the Nashville Education Center from its current
location with 3,500 square feet of leased space to a building to be constructed
on the Highway 127 site with 12,000 square feet of instructional and community
The new center in Nashville will include classrooms and
Nursing and Science laboratories, along with computer class rooms and a
Distance Learning classroom. The
highlight of the spaces will be a block of four classrooms that can be opened
up into one large space that can accommodate seating for 108 at tables or 246
in open seating, which will allow for larger gatherings and seminars. The new building will also have an open
computer lab for community as well as student use, and three Business Incubator
offices that will house three small business startups, with technology and
administrative help to get off the ground.
The campaign for the Nashville Education Center Expansion is
expected to run into Spring 2014, and the new Center is expected to be finished
in the Spring of 2015.
