Representatives from the community, students and educators gathered on Aug. 23 to celebrate and cut the ribbon on the new St. Louis Community College (STLCC) Center for Nursing and Health Sciences – the first new building at the STLCC-Forest Park campus in 20 years. Minority-owned KAI Enterprises and Tarlton Corp., both based in St. Louis, are credited with the design and construction of the state-of-the art facility.
“We are really excited about the Center for Nursing and Health Sciences. The new building creates an opportunity to expand learning and career preparation for students in nursing, dental assisting, surgical technology and many other programs,” said Dr. Jeff L. Pittman, Chancellor, St. Louis Community College. “We’re looking forward to a bright future for our students, and to increasing our impact in workforce development in the community.”
