Crook County/ COCC Computer & Education Center Groundbreaking

OSU/Crook County Agriculture Extension Office, along with Crook County and Central Oregon Community College (COCC), hosted the groundbreaking ceremony for the Crook County/COCC Computer and Education Center. The center will be the new home for the Crook County Open Campus. The building was made possible by a $3.9 million grant through the United States Department of Commerce from the Broadband Technology Opportunity Program and a $1 million contribution from COCC. When open in Aug 2011, the building will house college classes from OSU, COCC, and other colleges along with providing space for trainings and community events.

The ceremony was held Jan 24th. Representatives from OSU, COCC, State of Oregon, and local business gathered to celebrate all the hard work and collaboration needed to make this project a reality.
