Over the past couple of months, Southwestern Community College President Dr. Don Tomas has been meeting with officials in Macon County to determine a plan for expanding the Macon Campus. The proposed plan moved forward last week during a joint meeting with SCC’s Board of Trustees and Macon County Commissioners.
SCC’s Macon Campus was constructed on county-owned property in 2007 as a joint effort to provide higher education opportunities in Macon County. The property sits on 19 acres of county owned land. With enrollment numbers hitting at all-time highs both last fall and for the spring semester at the Macon Campus, Tomas has been tasked with finding a way to better accommodate the growing interest for education in Macon County.
