Southeast Community College celebrated
the move into its new Nebraska City Learning Center with a ribbon-cutting
ceremony on Tuesday, Aug. 24.
SCC President Dr. Paul Illich spoke at the Grand
Opening as well as SCC Board members and Nebraska City Public School Board members. Afterwards, there
were tours and refreshments for guests.
“I am so thankful and appreciative that SCC has
made this substantial investment and commitment for students of all ages in our
area,” said Cindy Meyer, Learning Center Coordinator. “I love seeing growth
through education in people at all levels.”
The building, which was purchased last spring from
Nebraska City Public Schools, features 12,500 square feet and includes indoor
and outdoor classrooms, health simulation room, office and testing spaces, a
construction lab and more.
“The facility offers additional space for both
credit and non-credit classes as well as student services,” Meyer said.
SCC opened the first of six
Learning Centers in May 2016 in York. In September 2019, SCC moved into a new
Learning Center facility in Falls City. Other communities with SCC Learning
Centers are Hebron, Plattsmouth and Wahoo. SCC’s first location in Nebraska
City opened in 2016 at 819 Central Ave.
