Texarkana College broke ground Monday for the new Center for Workforce Innovation.

Trustees along with community members, college faculty, staff and students, attended the ceremony announcing plans for the new site.

The new 19,568 square foot center will house four programs that prepare students to enter regional high-demand careers in Construction Technology, Electrical Technology, Electronics Technology/Instrumentation, and Industrial Maintenance/Multi-Craft.

“The new site is the first construction project TC has initiated in over twenty years,” said President James Henry Russell. “The programs housed in the building will provide a high return on investment both for our students and for our community. The skills students will learn in these programs lead to jobs with competitive wages and help our area employers fill vacancies in their workforce.”
