Delays not bad for SWGTC satellite campus

February 08, 2005

Cairo- The groundbreaking for a new campus in Cairo was held nearly a year ago, but nothing has been built on the land.

       That's because the college came into an unexpected 200-thousand dollars, and now they're planning to use that money to build an even bigger facility there. "It might mean we'll be able to offer a program we hadn't thought about offering there. We're still investigating and listening to the community to make sure we still have programs the community is still interested in.", says SWGTC Vice President of Economic Development, Cathy Harvell.

       Besides more classrooms, Harvell also says the college may be able to make more room for dual-enrollment courses. That would allow students to receive high-school credits and college credits simultaneously.
