Finishing touches are now
complete at Southeast Community College’s newest Learning Center in Falls City. More than 100 people attended a ribbon cutting on Thursday, Sept. 26, at the new facility. In addition, tours were offered as well as food and refreshments.
“The SCC Learning Center in
Falls City will provide a wealth of training and learning opportunities to this
area through a variety of classes and services easily accessible by the
community,” said Holly Carr, Learning Center coordinator.
Speakers included SCC
President Dr. Paul Illich, Falls City Mayor Shawna Bindle, SCC Board Secretary Kathy Boellstorff, and Holly Carr.
The 9,500 square-foot
facility was built by AHRS Construction and BCDM Architects. It includes four classrooms, a
large manufacturing space and a health sciences area. Credit and non-credit
courses will be offered, as well as business and industry training.
SCC’s learning centers are
part of the College’s strategic plan to better serve the educational needs of
the communities within the 15-county service area.
The York Learning Center
opened in 2016 and was the first of six centers established throughout
southeast Nebraska. Additional centers opened in Nebraska City, Hebron,
Plattsmouth and Wahoo.
