IOWA WESTERN CASS COUNTY CENTER PREPARES FOR DESIGN TECHNOLOGY PROGRAM
(Atlantic) Construction will soon begin on the Iowa Western Cass County Center. Building renovations need to be made in preparation for the Design Technology program which will be launched in the fall on August 22nd, 2011. Cass County Center director Ann Pross says they are still working towards their fundraising goal of $1.2 million for not only construction costs but also other startup costs including an endowed scholarship program. They want to involve local contractors in the bidding process for building improvements. For more information on the bidding process you can call Iowa Western at 243-5527. Outside of the upcoming construction plans, Pross added that some students have already been accepted to the program. There is a capacity of 30 students per year and a job opening for a professor will be posted very quickly.
