Klamath Community College celebrates construction completion

Klamath Falls, Ore. – Klamath Community College is getting ready to celebrate the completion of more than 15 million dollars of construction projects.

“The project was a 15.7 million dollar construction project,” said K.C.C.’s Lacey Jarrell. “That allowed us to build our new Work Skills Technology Center, and also Founders Hall.”

The Work Skills Technology Center will house many of K.C.C.’s career technical programs.

“We have also given some premium real estate in that building to our G.E.D. students,” added Jarrell.  So we have adult basic education and G.E.D. services through our Klamath Center for Education and Training.”

The 22,000 square foot Founders Hall plays a key role on the campus.

“Founders Hall is a one-stop shop for our students,” Jarrell explained. “It has everything from our registration services, financial aid, the bookstore, and we also have our learning resource center.”

A ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the completion of construction will be held Tuesday, October 2nd, at 4:00 pm – and you’re invited.

Klamath Community College isn’t done expanding.

The school recently received an 8 million dollar matching grant to build an apprenticeship and trade center.
