E-Town Community College Satellite Campus Coming To Grayson County

The KIX team recently caught up with our good friends in Grayson County, where lots of exciting things are happening. Most notably, some great news about increased access and opportunities for pursuing a college education close to home. While options existed in Elizabethtown, the up-to-35-mile drive made going there problematic for some Grayson County residents. Now, they can look forward to taking classes where they live and work.

Future site of Grayson County ECTCWhile it may be a vacant field today, but the 13 acres just down the road from the county government will soon be a new satellite campus for Elizabethtown Community and Technical College (ECTC). ECTC’s president, Dr. Thelma White, expects construction on the new facility to begin as early as April.

Caryn Lewis, Grayson County Chamber Executive Director, credits forward-thinking ECTC and community leaders for working together to bring this regional dream to fruition. This group includes city and county government, Twin Lakes Regional Medical Center, the Leitchfield/Grayson County Industrial Development Corporation, the chamber, and many others committed to developing local talent, strengthening the workforce for local businesses, and helping to attract new business.

And Lewis reminded us that it’s not just Grayson County that will benefit, but prospective students from surrounding counties such as Meade, Breckenridge, Hart, and more.

We look forward to celebrating the grand opening of the new campus and the increased educational opportunities it will bring to local residents.
