College of Central Florida to Receive $4.3 Million in State Funding
Published June 3rd, 2014
It's official: The College of Central Florida is coming to Levy county.
Governor Rick Scott approved $4.3 million worth of funding to go to the next phase of the Levy county campus.
The land needed for the new college and a couple million dollars in donations have already been acquired but CF was in need of some extra help from the Legislature.
College officials have been trying to get this funding for five years straight and they say, the fifth time was the charm.
"We've got a great project, it's going to help the community. It will be able to create jobs, so we're very excited about getting this project started. We're looking forward to it," said Jim Henningsen, president of the College of Central Florida.
The new facility will focus on STEM education and nursing and EMT programs.
The building is expected to be built within the next couple of years.
