Ozarks Technical Community College will hold an Open House at its new Lebanon Education Center on Friday, October 1, at 10 a.m.  The event will begin with recognition of guests of honor Reuben and Mary Lou Casey, the San Clemente, Calif., couple who donated the new facilities to the College.  The center is located off of Interstate 44, at 22360 Highway MM.  The public is invited to attend.  

The gift from the Caseys, presented to Ozarks Technical Community College in December of 2009, was composed of two buildings and more than 13 acres of land.  The total property was valued at approximately $2.6 million, and is the largest gift the College has ever received.  The facilities will be divided into rooms that will eventually become classrooms, offices, computer labs, student spaces and more; classes will be held at the new Lebanon Education Center beginning in the fall of 2011.

Representatives from Ozarks Technical Community College will be on hand during the Open House to answer questions regarding course descriptions, registration and financial aid, and to advise potential students.  Refreshments will be provided.
