Major Capital Projects Starting Soon At Midway College

By Wheeless - Lytle


Lexington, KY – Midway President William Drake Junior says construction will soon begin on a 5 million dollar, state of the art, learning resource center that will address the needs of its four major programs; equine studies, nursing, teacher education, and business.

Drake says to date the college has raised over 3 million dollars toward that goal and they'll have the remainder of the money in-house within 12 months. Midway has also inked a deal with Louisville-based Christian Care Communities to become the first Kentucky college to build a senior housing and long-term care facility on its campus.

Drake says the learning resource center should be up and running by fall of 2010, while he expects the assisted living center to be fully operational in about 18 months.
