Those “breaking ground” for the new building at SVCC’s Christanna Campus are (Left to Right) Darren Hayes and Keisha Carr, representing Delegate Roslyn Tyler; Bill Thompson of the architectural firm Thompson and Litton; Senator Frank Ruff; Elizabeth Sharrett, Chair of SVCC Local Board; Dr. Al Roberts, SVCC President; Barbara Jarrett-Harris, Chair of the Brunswick County Board of Supervisors; Robbie Pecht, President of the SVCC Foundation Board; and Brandon Spencer, Executive Vice President for Kenbridge Construction.
Since construction is underway on the new, two-level Student and Learning Resources Center on the Christanna Campus, the College Local Board moved the official groundbreaking October 24, 2018 inside as a symbolic
celebration of the new structure. The 45,000 square foot, 12-million-dollar building will be home to the relocated library and will have a performance space, food service area, beautiful student study and lounge areas, a workout room for students and employees and a welcome area. It will also house a career center, a veteran’s center, a credentialing center, and an IT networking and security training laboratory. Existing services to be relocated to the facility include student services, financial aid, admissions and records, and IT Services.
The Ground Breaking ceremony was held during the annual board event that included many area partners who work to help SVCC meet its goals. The building is scheduled to be completed in early 2020.
