Southwestern Community College to dedicate new building Sept. 14

Southwestern Community College will hold a dedication ceremony for the newly constructed Conrad G. Burrell building at 2 p.m. Sept. 14 on the Jackson campus in Sylva.

The three-story, 38,000-square-foot building cost $8.8 million and was funded two-thirds by the state of North Carolina and one-third by Jackson County. It is named in honor of SCC Trustee Conrad Burrell.  

Visitors to the building are greeted by a modern, open area floor plan. Located on the first level are the campus bookstore, administrative offices and a 400-person conference center. The second and third levels will serve as the hub for SCC’s English and business programs as well as a variety of arts and sciences courses. 

The building includes a geothermal heating and cooling system and energy-efficient windows and lighting.
