Kaskaskia College is pleased to announce Dennis and Donna Hesker of Okawville have pledged $2500.00 to the Nashville Education Center Campaign.
According to Dennis Hesker, “We are both graduates of Kaskaskia College and we feel that the new Nashville Education Center will create more opportunities and reduce costs for students in the community.”
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.
