Southeast Community College celebrated the opening of its newest Learning Center in Wahoo with a ribbon cutting Tuesday, April 17, at the newly renovated space.
Jenna Kettelhake is the Center coordinator and was one of the featured speakers, along with Wahoo Mayor Loren Lindahl, SCC Board of Governors Chairperson Nancy Seim, and SCC President Dr. Paul Illich.
"It is our goal to be a resource for current and prospective students in the region, helping to reduce travel time and make education more accessible," Kettelhake said. "Whether someone wants to take credit classes or just learn for fun, we are here to help. We look forward to growing in our new facility!"
The learning centers are part of a strategic plan created by the College to better serve the educational needs of the communities within the 15-county service area. Credit and non-credit courses will be offered, as well as business and industry training.
The York Learning Center opened in 2016 and was the first of six centers established throughout southeast Nebraska. Additional centers opened in Nebraska City, Plattsmouth, Falls City, and Hebron.
