Southeastern Community College will need to spend some of its own money to add on to one of its facilities.
The college wants to add some classroom and lab space at the site of its Emergency Response Training Center in Fort Madison. It is located along Ortho Road roughly one mile from Fort Madison Community Hospital.
SCC planned to pay for the construction of a new building with state money. The college is eligible for roughly $700,000 over two fiscal years.
Southeastern Community College President Beverly Simone used last night’s Board of Trustees meeting to announce her retirement after 6 1/2 years with the college.
She emailed a copy of her statement from the meeting to college employees Monday night.
In it, Simone, who turns 66 this summer, says with many of her close friends retired and her family out of the area,she will retire this summer. She says she will work with the Board of Trustees to determine a mutually agreeable date.
Simone will serve as President until her retirement takes effect.
