ONTARIO – Officials broke ground last week on the new Career and Technical Education Center at Treasure Valley Community College.

They gathered Thursday, Jan. 23, on the campus lawn across from the Vocational-Technical Education building for a ceremony as bulldozers chugged and clanked only feet away.

Dana Young, college president, and state Sen. Lynn Findley, R-Vale, inaugurated the new project.  

The work, which includes remodeling and expanding the current Vocational-Technical Education building as well as construction of the new Career and Technical Education Center, is meant to provide the space and resources for technical education programs for students . . .
