Steve and Raeanne Presley have donated $15,000 to purchase the first classroom naming in the new OTC Table Rock Campus.

Raeanne Presley is the mayor of Branson and a member of the OTC Foundation Board. Steve is a member of the Presley family that performs in Branson at the Presleys' Country Jubilee. When the Presleys built Branson's first music theatre in 1967, the family laid the foundation that would help Branson become the live music show capital of the world.

Construction on the new OTC facility has been ongoing for many months. OTC purchased a total of 8.25 acres located between Highways 65 and 165 to build the new campus. The building will house offices and classrooms on the first two floors and the third floor will be for future expansion.

The building is expected to be ready in the fall of next year.

Citizens in the Hollister School District voted to join the Ozarks Technical Community College district in April of 2010. 

Among other community benefits, joining the OTC district allows Hollister residents to pay the in-district tuition at the College, which is significantly lower than the cost for students living outside of the district.
