College President Dr. Paul Young said he'd like to see work start this spring on expanding Sheridan College's tech center.

He said the tech center is the top item on the college's 10-year master plan.

That provides a total $13 million for the tech center's expansion and renovation. Young talked about the tech center and other facilities in the college's master plan at a recent work session of Northern Wyoming Community College District trustees and the Sheridan College Foundation.

In an interview with Sheridan Media, he said he's hopeful that the project could go out to bid in the spring and improvements start on the 40-year-old facility. He said the tech center is the next in line in the college's efforts to upgrade buildings that date back to the 1950s.

He said the college is excited, and anxious to start work. But while the tech center is the highest priority, it isn't the only project in the college's master plan.

He said the college has to grow more capacity to accommodate the additional growth in students. He told trustees that the goal is to plan ahead, not to build to the capacity that the college currently has but to build for the future.
