Kaskaskia College is pleased to announce Brad and Deborah Barkau have pledged $2500.00 to the Nashville Education Center Campaign.
According to Brad Barkau, “Deb and I are both attended Kaskaskia College from 1969 to 1971 and met while attending classes there. We were greatly benefitted by KC and are pleased to be able to assist with the new Center in hopes that others will also enjoy the benefits of KC and what it has to offer.”
Brad also serves as the Chairman of the Individual Giving Team for the Nashville Campaign.
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 at Route 127 and Exchange Avenue with 12,000 square feet of instructional and community space.
The new center 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 for prospective entrepreneurs.
