Western Nebraska Community College hosted a Grand Reopening and Ribbon Cutting ceremonies Thursday for the Scottsbluff Campus Main Building.
Thursday’s event, which was held inside the new Judy Chaloupka Theater in the Platte Valley Companies Performing Arts Center, included a ribbon cutting ceremony with Chamber Ambassadors on hand, and was followed by tours of the newly renovated facility.
The $18.5 million renovation — the first significant project on the Scottsbluff Campus Main Building since it opened in 1969 — includes the Platte Valley Companies Performing Arts Center, the Howard Olsen Student Success Center, and Learning Commons. The 21-month project will provide students, staff, and community members a new space to learn, gather, and grow.
As WNCC prepares moves into the newly renovated building, its students, faculty, and staff look forward to the opportunities the college will see stemming from this project.
Each new addition to the college — including the new bookstore known as Buddy’s Books & Bistro, the Platte Valley Companies Performing Arts Center, Howard Olsen Student Success Center, and Learning Commons — will be a positive addition for WNCC and for the community.
