FDTC’s Mullins site grows with renovation
MULLINS – Florence-Darlington Technical College’s Mullins Technology Center will unveil a 3,000 square feet renovation on Wednesday morning, Aug. 5, at 10:30 a.m. at the downtown site, 109 South Main Street. A ribbon cutting will be held featuring FDTC President Dr. Ben Dillard and members of the Marion County Healthcare Foundation. The Foundation contributed $400,000 to fund the renovations.
The new instructional areas will increase the size of the Mullins site to 11,000 square feet in the heart of downtown Mullins. The new construction is a building next to the College’s site that used to house a substation for the Mullins Police Department. Workers were able to construct a door to join the two buildings together. It features new classrooms and added biology labs which will keep many students in Mullins instead of having to travel to the main campus in Florence.
The renovation also has space for a Certified Nursing Assistants program. The Mullins Technology Center allows students to take classes and labs leading to diplomas, certificates and associate degrees.
