Howard College trustees will meet in the student union building’s Tumbleweed Room at 12:30 p.m. Monday, to hear of plans to address a long-standing problem at SWCID’s administration and dormitory buildings.
SWCID’s heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) system hasn’t been upgraded since before the turn of the century and College President Dr. Cheryl Sparks said the tipping point for the system has long since passed.
“We’ve been having difficulties with it the past several years, and we’ve tried to address it,” Sparks said. “But we’ve reached the point where the system needed to be upgraded.”
The college received almost $2 million in state monies to finance the HVAC upgrade, Sparks said.
