BEATRICE – Southeast Community College broke ground Tuesday on two projects that mark the start of a transformation of the Beatrice Campus. A new residential hall and full-service dining facility will be constructed to the west of the Kennedy Center, on the campus.
Campus President Bob Morgan says the improvements will help the school compete for students.
:05 “give us that”
College administrators, board members, students, builders and community leaders attended the groundbreaking. Beatrice Mayor Stan Wirth called it “another good day for Beatrice, Southeast Nebraska and Southeast Community College”.
:28 “in the future”
The construction projects will be completed by Caspers and Sampson Construction, a Lincoln and Beatrice-based company. Deann Caspers-Moon says one of the satisfying things is seeing a piece of under-utilized property become a solution to a problem.
Southeast Community College President Dr. Paul Illich said the new facility work is one of the components the school’s Board of Governors emphasized, to take the college to a new level.
:30 “is all about”
Southeast Community College is also planning construction of a 60,000 square foot general classroom building nearby, on the Beatrice Campus. The school is also adding to its Milford campus new residential housing and an upgraded Diesel Technology Program. The Lincoln Campus will see construction of a new facility to house nursing and medical technology programs at SCC.
