GRAYSON COUNTY, TX---  In just a couple of weeks students attending Grayson College will have access to a new technical center at the college's south campus in Van Alstyne. Today, dozens of people got a sneak peek of the facility at the center's grand opening.

"This is a wonderful day for Grayson College and it's a wonderful day for the communities that we serve," Grayson College President Dr. Jeremy McMillen said. 

This afternoon, Dr. McMillen introduced the center that has already helped the local economy by creating dozens of jobs.

"People are excited about this because it is tied to the economic needs of our area," Dr. McMillen said.

The 18,000 square foot building will provide classrooms and lab space for four of the collages' technical programs. The programs being offered at the center are medical lab technology, welding, electrical technology and occupational safety and health.

Funding for the center was provided by the U.S. Department of Commerce Economic Development Administration and Grayson College.
