Fremont, Ohio, September 7, 2018 – Through the Terra College Foundation, Terra State Community College has received a grant for nearly $288,000 from the United State Department of Agriculture in the form of a Rural Business Development Grant. The funds will be used to renovate the first floor of the General Technologies Building for the new home of the Kern Center, as well as the Board Room on the second floor.
Additionally, a new leadership and entrepreneurial center will be created. The new center will focus on area businesses, manufacturers, health care providers and their employees that want to advance to supervisory positions and need leadership training. The center will be the first of its kind for community colleges in Ohio and will possibly open early next year.
