Dodge City Community College wants to thank our generous donors for making the Lewis Technology Center possible
“We’ve had some very generous individuals and businesses donate a total of $448,750 to the Dodge City Community College Foundation for the expansion of our Manufacturing Technology Building, thank you! We will now be able to enroll and train additional students that have been on a waiting list into our welding and manufacturing program. These students, after going through our program, will be skilled in welding and manufacturing ready to help fill the growing demand here in Dodge City and southwestern Kansas. This is a perfect example of how Dodge City Community College wants to partner with business and industry, and also provide skilled training, for good jobs, for our citizens.”
“This new building will be named the Lewis Technology Center. It will be the first building on the Dodge City Community College campus that is named for the generosity of a financial donation. Thank you Mr. Jim Lewis and the Lewis family!”
Dr. Don Woodburn, President
Dodge City Community College
Plans for the Activities Center include an indoor soccer field, basketball courts, a walking track, study areas, a small theater and more for students and community members to enjoy. The monolithic dome design will serve as a community tornado shelter, may be the home of Ford County 911 Communication and a possible staging area in the event of a large-scale community disaster. "This campaign is an opportunity for all residents to become part of an important community investment - Dodge City Community College," stated Dr. Woodburn, President of DCCC. "By investing in the future of the college, donors will be ensuring the availability of higher education in Ford County and surrounding areas now and for generations to come."
