NRCTC President Dr. L. Marshall Washington led a tour of the $15 million facility that houses faculty, staff and administrative offices, laboratories, classrooms and a student center on Friday.
“We’re very pleased to be able to pull all our central office staff together,” said Washington. “It’s the first time we’ve been able to be in one building together, and then to pull the Raleigh County Campus together. Everybody is under one roof.”

Washington pointed out that the new campus location near Interstate 64 in Beaver is convenient for students.
