After three years of construction, Hopkinsville Community College will be unveiling the Emerging Technology Building to donors and supporters from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Friday.

The new building will be home to classes for students seeking careers in health care, technology as well as some general education classes.

The Emerging Technology Building comes as long awaited addition to HCC’s campus. The last building added to campus was erected in 1997, according to New Era archives.

This building was partly funded by the BuildSmart campaign. HCC announced the BuildSmart Campaign in 2016 alongside the groundbreaking. The goal of the fundraiser was to raise $3.75 million for the building’s budget, according to HCC.

Former HCC president Jay Allen said in a previous New Era story that 83.5% of the fundraiser was achieved.

According to New Era records, Rena Young, HCC director of marketing and communications, said classes will begin in the building mid-August.
