Nascote Industries Pledges $10,000 to Kaskaskia College Nashville Education Center Campaign

​Kaskaskia College is pleased to announce that Nascote Industries of Nashville has pledged $10,000 to the Nashville Education Center Campaign.
 
Jeff Dahlquist, Human Resources Manager for Nascote says, “The Kaskaskia College presence in Nashville has always been a good thing for the Nascote family. We are looking forward to great things from this wonderful new education center and happily support this new venture!”
 
KC Vice President Nancy Kinsey commented, “We value the partnership between Nascote and Kaskaskia College and appreciate their support; Nascote is a progressive organization and the leadership values education and provides unique professional development opportunities for their employees.  With the new Nashville Education Center and expanded offerings, we hope to serve them even more and to develop and expand similar partnerships with many other Washington County businesses. 
 
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 Allied Health and Science laboratories, along with computer classrooms 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.
