A program that started with only six students was heralded with a ribbon cutting Friday for South Plains College’s new cosmetology building.

Dr. Kelvin Sharp, SPC president, thanked the community and the board of regents for their support of the new facility.

‘It’s a trademark of the support for what we do for students,’ Sharp said.

The 20,000 square-foot facility was built inside the building that once housed a Walmart store.

It was designed by Trainor Architects and built for $2.2 million under the direction of Jim McCutchin.

Sharp said the facility is ‘state of the art and a contemporary design.’

The remodeled building is part of what started when the college bought part of Gentry Square and remodeled it into a facility for the Allied Health Department’s nursing programs.
