Western Technical College in Sparta will hold a ribbon cutting event for the College Prep & Transitional Education Center on Wednesday, Sept. 7, from 4:00-6:00 p.m., at the new location, 112 South Water St.

The college made the move downtown last fall, but recently completed remodeling to accommodate Western’s General Education Development (GED), High School Equivalency Diploma (HSED), college prep, and English language learner courses. The celebratory event will include a brief ceremony at 4:00 p.m., featuring college representatives and a recent graduate of the GED program. Refreshments and a tour will follow. The public is invited to stop by anytime during the event and learn more about the services offered.

“Our new and improved downtown space will give us an even stronger connection to the Sparta community,” said Chad Dull, dean of Learner Support and Transition at Western. “The services we offer prepare students for whatever is next – college courses, a job, or even a promotion. It’s amazing to see what students in these programs accomplish! We hope the new location will allow more people to take advantage of these services.”
