Work Continues on New Waco Center at Glenville State College

Posted: Updated:

The cool weather may have slowed down some construction projects but it hasn't stopped one local college.

Work on Glenville State's new Waco Center is continuing as planned and the project is still on track for a partial opening in August.

The Waco Center will house the college's land resources program, a new basketball arena, and a health center, available to the public.

"As the college grows, the community will hopefully grow right along with it. We all know that we have to have good medical coverage in the area, not only to take care of our students, but to take care of the community at large," said Tom Ratliff, of Glenville State College.

The nearest medical facilities to Glenville are about 45 minutes away in Weston and Grantsville.
