Lake Land College has set aside funding for a new Rural Development Technology Center in Effingham. Construction is expected to begin in 2022 and will house the Effingham Regional Career Academy, along with additional classroom and lab space.
Lake Land College President Josh Bullock says the project was truly a community effort.
Bullock says through fiscal responsibility, the new construction will be funded without having to raise taxes on local residents.
Bullock says the center will provide area students with the technical skills they need to be a productive member of the community.
