Kaskaskia College is pleased to announce that Ed Boehning of Nashville has donated $1,000 to the Nashville Education Center Campaign.
Boehning, originally from New Minden, is 1 1947 graduate of Nashville High School. He said he chose to donate to the Nashville Campaign because “he believes that the new Nashville Education Center will provide a wonderful education to future generations”. His nephew, Jon Boehning, has been a long time professor at Kaskaskia College in the computer Technology field.
As part of its capital campaign master plan, Kaskaskia College plans to expand the Nashville Education Center from its current location with 3,500 square feet of leased space to a building to be constructed at Route 127 and Exchange Avenue with 12,000 square feet of instructional and community space.
The new center will include classrooms and Nursing and Science laboratories, along with computer class rooms and a Distance Learning classroom. The highlight of the spaces will be a block of four classrooms that can be opened up into one large space that can accommodate seating for 108 at tables or 246 in open seating, which will allow for larger gatherings and seminars. The new building will also have an open computer lab for community as well as student use, and three Business Incubator offices that will house three small business startups, with technology and administrative help for prospective entrepreneurs.
