By fall of 2020, PTCC will have a complete interior makeover. Recently, the College has received $2.2 million to renovate and update student leisure and learning spaces from local, state, EDA and legislative funding. Working with TKDA, an architectural company out of Duluth, MN, the project is underway and has an anticipated completion date of July, 2020.
Of the $2.2 million, the U.S. Department of Commerce has invested $1.1 million to contribute to the modernization of our workforce training facilities. To learn more about their contribution to the College, check out this press release from the EDA.
On October 11, after flying in on Air Force One and attending the Trump rally in Minneapolis, representative Pete Stauber joined us on campus to celebrate the kick off and ground breaking of the modernization project, which will begin in January, 2020. In attendance, along with representative Stauber were Rep. Nathan Nelson (District 11B); Bob Thompson, PTCC Foundation President and President and CEO of Minpack; Pine City Mayor, Carl Pederson; and Bob Voss and Jordan Zeller from the EDA.
