TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (May 11, 2018)—Tallahassee Community College on Wednesday unveiled eight newly renovated classrooms to a group of donors who have provided support for those upgrades.
The purpose of the event was to thank donors who have contributed to the TCC Foundation’s First Class Project, and most of the guests were community members and businesses that have sponsored the renovation and naming of a classroom.
The event began with a reception in the Lei Wang STEM Center. The group then gathered to watch TCC alum and long-time supporter Pam Butler cut the ribbon on the door of the newly named Aegis Business Technologies Classroom. Butler, chair and co-founder of Aegis Business Technologies, was joined at the event by co-founder and vice president Brad Mitchell.
The guests then toured the seven other classrooms, which are located around the campus, with donors enjoying a first fresh look at the classrooms that now bear their names.
The eight classrooms unveiled Wednesday represent the first set of completed renovations. The remaining renovations will be completed over the next four years.
The classroom renovation initiative began in 2016 with a wish list of 50 classrooms that needed sponsors. Those who sponsored a classroom made a donation of $25,000 that was matched by TCC for a total $50,000 renovation.
Today, there are only 10 classrooms still awaiting “adoption.” Classrooms have been sponsored and named by local businesses and by individuals and families.
