San Marcos Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors joined others at the ribbon cutting for Austin Community College’s Goodnight Center at the site of the former San Marcos High School.
San Marcos Area Chamber of Commerce (SMACC) Ambassadors were joined by other dignitaries to cut the ribbon on the Austin Community College (ACC) Goodnight Center.
Among those in attendance were SMACC Executive Vice President Robert Watts, San Marcos Mayor Susan Narvaiz, and a group of ACC automotive technology students.
ACC renovated the former San Marcos High School and auto shop to open the Goodnight Center. Campus tours were available after the ribbon cutting.
“The chamber is pleased to welcome this ACC program to San Marcos, and we are excited about the opportunities it brings our citizens and businesses,” SMACC President Phyllis Snodgrass said.
The nationally accredited automotive technology program is one of the many workforce programs taught at ACC.
“Most jobs being created today require a two-year associate degree or technical certificate, so we’re eager to expand regional access to this valuable credential,” said Mike Midgley, ACC’s vice president of workforce education and business development. “The response so far has been extremely positive.”
