MCC hosts more than 100 “future students” to celebrate Veterans Day and construction of new career and tech center
More than 100 fourth and fifth graders from Jefferson Elementary recently visited MCC to honor Veterans past and present, while looking to the future.
To celebrate the start of construction on the college’s new career and tech center, students first had their photo taken at the site where many will one day take classes. Following the photo, they made their way to the college’s front lawn where they helped plant hundreds of flags in honor of Veteran’s Day.
As THE Community’s College, Eastern Iowa Community Colleges has long provided veterans with educational opportunities. In an effort to continue our commitment to increasing access to education for everyone, we’re expanding our career and technical offerings with the construction of a new career and tech center. This center will meet the needs of veterans utilizing their G.I. Bill, high school students enrolled in our Career Academies, those looking to change or start a new career and more.
Funding for the modern facility was made possible earlier this year thanks to the strong support of district voters, with more than 70 percent voting in favor of a 40 million bond referendum to expand career and technical training opportunities across EICC’s service area. The 30,000 sq. ft. facility will include classrooms, a student commons/lobby area, offices for instructors and multi-purpose laboratories in the following disciplines: Automotive Technology, Construction Technology, Criminal Justice and Allied Health/Nursing. Construction is expected to be completed by fall of 2022.
