Adams community cuts ribbon on Mid-State campus
For the City Times
WISCONSIN RAPIDS – Mid-State Technical College and the Adams community celebrated the official transition of the college’s Adams County Center to a full campus on Oct. 1. The ribbon cutting and open house included refreshments and a tour of the campus as well as remarks from Mid-State President Shelly Mondeik, Campus Dean Laurie Inda, and Laura Hook Executive Director of the Adams County Chamber of Commerce & Tourism.
The campus designation means increased opportunities for those living in the Adams community, including the addition of face-to-face programs for fall 2020 and the Nursing Assistant program now being offered at the location. A major facelift was also recently completed at the campus, resulting in a new health lab, state-of-the-art classroom technology and new furniture, paint, ceilings, and carpet throughout.
“As we dug into what we were offering here and looked at the demographics of the communities, it definitely made sense that we could make more of an investment to serve you,” said President Mondeik in her address. Mondeik spoke of the community’s requests for full programming without the need to drive to other campuses and the return of more continuing education offerings, which provided fuel for the expansion to a full campus.
According to Campus Dean Laurie Inda, future enhancements at the Adams Campus will include additional degree programs, as well as more expanded services and updates to the facility.
