Groundbreaking Ceremony for new CCC Career and Technical Education Center
With an eye on the future and supporting career and technical education training throughout the region, Clinton Community College (CCC), an Eastern Iowa Community Colleges campus, is celebrating the start of construction for the Career and Technical Education Center on Wednesday, October 20 at 10 a.m., 1210 11th Ave. S., Clinton, IA.
The groundbreaking ceremony is open to the public and includes a symbolic turning of the dirt with remarks hosted by the college’s President, Brian Kelly. Parking for the event is available at 1000 Lincoln Blvd., Clinton.
In large part thanks to the generosity of the local community, the modern 26,700 sq. ft. facility will house multi-purpose laboratories, classrooms, a student commons/lobby area and offices for instructors.
“The new Career and Technical Education Center will host our Career Academy partnerships with the region's high schools,” said Brian Kelly, CCC President. “This center aligns with both our college’s mission and the needs of the community, providing high quality education and training that prepares a skilled workforce ready for the demands of our area employers.”
The Career and Technical Education Center and CCC’s Career Academies will provide participating high school juniors and seniors with the unique opportunity to earn college credit at no charge, while still in high school. As an extension of the high school curriculum, students can pursue various in-demand career fields including:
- Automotive Technology
- Construction Technology
- Engineering Technology
- Information Technology
- Welding Technology
“This is an outstanding partnership with our school districts and local businesses to address a shifting workforce dynamic and provide additional opportunities for our community. We are excited to be a part of the solution,” said Kelly.
Studio 483 Architects, an architectural firm with offices in Rock Island, IL and Davenport, IA, provided design services. Construction on the facility is scheduled to be completed by fall 2022.
