Construction on Southwest Tennessee Community College's New Whitehaven Center is Underway
For more information, contact:
Southwest has started a $4.4 million construction project to convert a former Kroger into a new site for our Whitehaven Center. The supermarket transformation at 1234 Finley should be completed this fall. The former Kroger is a 31-year-old building with 44,000 square feet that can reportedly accommodate up to 1,500 students. The new location will be more accessible to Whitehaven area residents traveling to the facility. The conventional academic program for community college students will still be offered. It will also provide an opportunity for high school students to use it as a vocational and technical learning center; to learn a trade at the same time they earn their high school diplomas. The current Whitehaven Center closes August 7. Current and new Whitehaven Center students are urged to enroll in their nearest Southwest Campus location this Fall 2015 until the new Whitehaven Center facility is ready for the start of the Spring 2016 Semester in January.
