BCC Celebrates McLamb Building with Rededication Ceremony
BOLIVIA, NC – Brunswick Community College held a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Wednesday, November 18th for the first permanent building on the main campus. During the rededication ceremony, members of Brunswick Community College honored the McLamb Family and celebrated the recently renovated WJ and Sibyl McLamb Building. Immediately following the dedication ceremony, small group tours were provided to showcase renovated learning labs and classrooms.
The WJ and Sibyl McLamb Building was named in 2013 in honor of Mr. WJ and Miss Sibyl’s passion and belief that the economy can be renewed through the strong support of students and professional technical education.
The original building, previously known as Building D, was built in 1983 and housed continuing education, the Brunswick Technical College Library, the administration, and the first Brunswick College computer lab. It held classes in auto mechanics, HVAC, welding, and GED.
While holding true to its original identity, the building received additions in both 2002 and 2007 to include The Technical and Trades Center. Today the renovated WJ and Sibyl McLamb Building houses programs such as Business Administration, Health and Fitness Science, Computer Information Technology, Welding Technology, and other professional and technical programs and courses. These programs generally offer students a two-year degree and movement into a career. The building also houses Continuing Education and Workforce Development trade courses and BCC’s Gateway to Employment and Academic Readiness program which lays the foundation for further higher education opportunities, career training, and higher-income earnings.
Brunswick Community College campus is located at 50 College Road in Bolivia, North Carolina. For additional information regarding the WJ and Sibyl McLamb Building rededication ceremony and related activities, please call London Schmidt at 910.755.7393 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
