Kaskaskia College is pleased to announce that Ron and Judy Brown of Nashville have donated $1,000 to the Nashville Education Center Campaign.
According to Ron Brown, “We have two sons that are Kaskaskia College graduates who received excellent educations there. We are quite excited to have a centrally located new center that will save so many students in travel expenses and, more important, less time on the road to take courses that before were only offered on campus.”
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.
