On May 18, 2017, we attended the groundbreaking of Building B at Southern Crescent Technical College's Henry County Center in McDonough! This 82,500 square foot multi-level, state-of-the-art facility will house various medical, computer, and industrial training programs designed to meet the immediate workforce needs of the area.
Southern Crescent Technical College President Dr. Alvetta Thomas stated, “We are beyond excited to be celebrating the groundbreaking for this important asset to our college community. The Henry County business, education and government communities have long been supporters of Southern Crescent Technical College and this project is a model for true collaboration between all of these partners. This building is a great example of teamwork, dedication and vision and shows the commitment to education and workforce development from the leaders and citizens of Henry County.”

The Technical College System of Georgia contributed $20,958,000 from state general obligation bond financing for the design, construction, and equipment of Building B. Henry County contributed an additional $5 million, and the City of McDonough donated an additional $1 million in SPLOST funds for the project. Construction is scheduled to be completed in the summer of 2018, and classes will begin in the fall of 2018!
