MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (WBOY) — After more than a year, Laurel College of Technology finally held the ribbon-cutting ceremony for its new facility on Wednesday.
Through the college’s partnership with Mon Health, the building that was formerly Wedgewood Medical Center is now the home of Laurel College in the Morgantown area.
Even though the college is in close proximity to WVU’s Morgantown campus, executive vice president Douglas Decker said it isn’t trying to compete with anyone.
“Education is a very personal choice,” Decker said.
“Anytime that we develop a new program we look at what’s here. Where is there a need, where is there a niche, where is there sustainable growth and development of careers so that when we select a program, we’re selecting something that’s going to be a long-term return on investment for our graduates,” Decker said.
The official ribbon-cutting has been delayed repeatedly since February of last year, but the school is happy to say it is fully up and running.
