Local foundation to support new GGC building

LAWRENCEVILLE -- The Community Foundation for Northeast Georgia has contributed a grant to Georgia Gwinnett College's new Allied Health and Science building.

The grant is $50,000, and GGC will break ground on the new building this fall. The project is expected to be completed in 2014.

"If GGC is to provide top-notch educational training in the midst of Georgia's Innovation Crescent, and ensure that students are prepared for the employment trends of the region and state, we require state-of-the-art facilities," said Stas Preczewski, vice president for Academic and Student Affairs. "Basic construction project funding does not cover additional needs of undergraduate research."

Based in Duluth, the CFNEG will have a selected space named for it in the college.
