Life on Wayne Community College’s campus may seem somewhat subdued during the pandemic, but don’t let that fool you.
While the student activity on campus is currently diminished, the college is still chipping away at its plans for improving its facilities.
During an interview with GoldsboroDailyNews.com, WCC President Dr. Thomas Walker says the idea is to provide a world-class learning environment for the students of today and tomorrow.
Dr. Walker notes the biggest demand for workers is in the advanced manufacturing sector, and WCC is a major provider for that skilled workforce.
With most students staying off campus and taking classes remotely, Walker says the college has used this period of downtime to continue working on the upgrades.
WCC recently began renovating its welding facility, which is scheduled to be completed in time for classes to be held there in Fall 2021.
This is just part of the plan for creating and completing Wayne Community College’s Advanced Manufacturing Center.
In the coming days, GoldsboroDailyNews.com will take a further look at the future facility plans for Wayne Community College.
