Howard College trustees will get an update on the building project on the college's San Angelo campus — including a recommendation for construction manager at risk — when they meet at 12:30 p.m. Monday in the student union building's Tumbleweed Room.
According to College President Dr. Cheryl Sparks, the project — estimated at $12 million, with a final figure not yet established — will allow for construction of two new buildings on Howard's San Angelo campus.
“We expect to make the recommendation for construction manager at risk for the project,” Sparks said. “The construction will be funded through revenue bonds, which come from the tuition and fees generated by the San Angelo campus alone.”
Sparks said the buildings — one will provide classroom space, while the second will be designated for student services — represent a step forward for the junior college's San Angelo campus.
“We've had a presence in San Angelo for some time now,” Sparks said. “This project will simply create a place for us. We're very excited about this project and what it will do for student services.”
In other business, college trustees will consider:
• Discussion of the Big Spring campus' G.C. Broughton Ag Complex
• Quarterly investment report
• Catalog and handbook changes
