Dignitaries, staff and students braved the chilly winds Thursday, October 17 to break ground for Northeast Community College’s new Applied Technology Facility.  President of NECC, Dr. Michael Chipps introduced a number of honored guests, including Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman, John W. Davies, the Vice-Chair of NECC’s Board of Governors, Dean of Applied Technology, Lyle Kathol and Applied Technology representative and alumnus Don Wisnieski. All said the 66,600 square foot instructional space is a much needed addition to the NECC campus, and the  state of the art classrooms and labs will ultimately help keep highly trained graduates in Nebraska. The building will house Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning, Building Construction, Electromechanical, Electrical Construction and Control, and a portion of the Wind Energy Technology programs. It is expected to open in about two years.  More pictures of the event are available on The Viewpoint Flickr page.
