Grand Openings and Ribbon Cutting Ceremonies Held Friday, October 14

The Grand Openings and Ribbon Cutting Ceremonies for the Life Sciences and Student Services areas were held Friday, Oct. 14, 2022, at St. Charles Community College. The renovations were made possible thanks to voters of Proposition Community College (PropCC) in 2020.

Fall 2022 classes are being held for the first time this semester in the renovated Life Sciences Building, formerly the Café Bookstore. There are five new science labs, along with additional classrooms, offices and student study areas. The renovations provide a more expansive learning environment for our students while also creating the potential for growth in STEM programs.

Student Services staff members are now welcoming students to the newly renovated, student-centric space on the first floor of the Administration Building for admissions, advising, financial aid, student wellness and more. The design creates a state-of-the art environment for students to easily access key enrollment and advisement functions.

During the ceremonies Trustee Mary Stodden, president of St. Charles Community College Board of Trustees, recognized the support of voters in passing Proposition Community College and shared the following: “As trustees we take seriously our role in ensuring the prudent use of public funds. I am proud to share with you today that both projects came in under budget.”

Also in attendance were a number of community and business leaders including Representative John Wiemann, Cottleville Mayor Bob Ronkoski, Dardenne Prairie Mayor John Gotway, President and CEO of the Economic Development Center of St. Charles County Scott Drachnik, and Aldermen from St. Peters and Cottleville. The architects and construction managers responsible for each project were also recognized and include: (For Life Sciences) Wright Construction Services, FGM Architects, and SSC Engineering. (For Student Services) Aspire Construction Services, Lawrence Group, and Ross and Baruzzini.
