MORE EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES IN SIOUXLAND

SIOUXLAND—SIOUXLANDERS WILL SOON HAVE A NEW OPTION IN HIGHER EDUCATION.

CLASSES START IN TEN DAYS AT THE NEW COLLEGE CENTER IN SOUTH SIOUX CITY.

THE SCHOOL’S FIRST BUILDING WAS DEDICATED LAST WEEK.

COLLEGE PRESIDENT BILL PATH SAYS THE INDUSTRIAL TRAINING BUILDING WILL HOLD CLASSES IN DRAFTING AND INDUSTRIAL TECH PROGRAMS.

THE SECOND BUILDING IS DUE TO OPEN IN THE SPRING OF 2011.

PATH SAYS THIS IS A FIRST-OF-ITS-KIND EFFORT IN HIGHER EDUCATION TO SHARE PARTNERSHIP 50-50 BETWEEN TWO ENTITIES.

NORTHEAST COMMUNITY COLLEGE IN NORFOLK AND WAYNE STATE COLLEGE.

ALSO, NORTHEAST WILL OFFER ALL OF THE INDUSTRIAL AND VOCATIONAL CLASSES WHILE WAYNE STATE WILL OFFER THE GRADUATE-LEVEL COURSES.

THE FACILITIES ARE ON A 57-ACRE SITE DONATED BY THE SOUTH SIOUX CITY COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT AGENCY.

PATH SAYS THEY EXPECT STEADY GROWTH IN WHAT HE’S CALLING A COMMUTER CAMPUS.

AS THE NUMBERS GROW, HE SAYS SO WILL THE NUMBER OF CLASSES AND FACILITIES.
