Southwest Technical College (Southwest Tech) is pleased to announce that the Larry H. & Gail Miller Family Foundation has pledged a $400,000 matching last in grant to assist the College with a major remodel project at its facility at 510 West 800 South in Cedar City, Utah. The Miller commitment will match any community donation dollar for dollar up to $400,000.
The building at 510 West 800 South, Southwest Tech’s Business and Technology Building, was originally constructed in 1983. For several decades, this building housed the majority of Southwest Tech programs until the new Health Professions and Trades building was constructed and opened in early 2016.
The Business and Technology Building currently houses the Business and Digital Media Programs offered at Southwest Tech, and is also the home of the SUU Business Resource Center and the Cedar City Area Chamber of Commerce. Southwest Tech is currently planning an extensive remodel to the building to add space for their Automotive and Professional Truck Driving programs, which are currently located in a different building on the north side of Cedar City.
Southwest Tech College President Brennan M. Wood stated, “This commitment from the Miller Foundation is a huge step towards this remodel. We are extremely grateful for their commitment, along with many others that are coming forward with donations as they see the value in technical education and helping us elevate the overall quality and experience for our students.”
