LCC breaks ground on new health science building


Labette Community College broke ground on the future site of a new health science building today.

A $1 million grant is helping pay for the new building at the main campus in Parsons, Kansas.

The new health science building is the largest construction project LCC has undertaken.  It'll offer a number of programs and high quality equipment.

The total amount raised for the project including the grants comes to around $10.4 million.  That money will be used for the new building, scholarship endowments, and deferred maintenance costs.

"It helped initiate gifts that maybe not would have come in and it also helped people to decide to give bigger gifts than they might have without that challenge," says Lindi Forbes of the Labette Community College.

The building is expected to be completed by October of next year.
