Tarrant County College and the Crowley Independent School District will host a grand opening Monday,  introducing Crowley residents to its new educational partnership at the recently established Crowley South Campus Center.

The celebration will be from 3-6 p.m. at the Bill R. Johnson Career Technology Center, 1033 McCart in Crowley.

CSCC is the result of the response of the community college and the local school district to the business community's request to grow an educated workforce by increasing college educational opportunities.

It is projected to serve 1,000 dual credit students and traditional academic transfer, workforce development, developmental education and continuing education students.

The 50,000-square-foot facility initially will house basic courses including anatomy and physiology, English, social science and teacher education.

Additionally, a limited number of computer classes and business applications will be offered. Planned future offerings include computer aided drafting and design, general biology, and math, along with a limited number of graphics courses.

More information about TCC's dual credit program at South Campus is available from South Campus Director of Academic Affairs Jeana Locke at jeana.locke@tccd.edu or about the grand opening from South Campus Divisional Dean Jo Bagley at jo.bagley@tccd.edu.
