RCC unveils exterior design of $19 million Center for Workforce Development
Updated: Aug 9, 2020
"While RCC’s programs have always been sufficient to meet the needs of our local industry, the campus facilities were antiquated in comparison to other colleges in North Carolina and southern Virginia. This project not only levels the playing field but it will propel RCC as one of the premier institutions in the region in bringing advanced skills to the local workforce that are critical to the existing industries and those that we are recruiting. With a non-partisan effort to pass the sales tax increase, it is a textbook example of how the private and public sectors can work together to focus on what every community needs - good, high paying jobs. This project is a giant leap forward for RCC and Rockingham County." - Reidsville Economic Development Director Jeff Garstka

The exterior design of the projected $19 million Rockingham County College Center for Workforce Development, slated for construction in late 2021, has been approved by the college’s board of trustees.
RCC President Mark Kinlaw shared the design with county commissioners during a May 4 presentation updating the board on the standing of the facility and the community college’s use of the quarter-cent sales tax since the school began collecting the revenue in October 2018.
The video rendering, created by ADW Architects of Charlotte, can be found on the RCC website. The four-minute video shows off the unique exterior of the projected 41,500-square-foot, one-story building designed to help RCC and the community fortify workforce development initiatives.
