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.
