GCC Plans Upgrades to Older Classrooms & Labs

GCC President Robert Pura lauded Greenfield Co-operative Bank as a prime example of how community banks in Franklin County choose to make local investments which enrich the lives of its customers. Pura's comments came during a formal announcement of the local bank's $25,000. pledge toward facilities upgrades at the college.

GCC plans to use the funding to upgrade the older sections of the College campus to meet the needs of a 21st century education. President Pura announced; "the Greenfield Community College campus will be a world class facility and help educate the future leaders of Franklin County as a direct result of the Greenfield Co-operative Bank's support of the college's Major Gift Campaign."

Co-op Bank President and CEO Michael Tucker stated, "GCB and its board feel strongly about supporting the college and about bringing older portions of the GCC building up to the standards of the newly completed core building. Our bank's gift is an important piece of the total funding to improve the classroom and lab areas for Math, Science, Health Occupations and the Humanities. GCB and GCC share an important goal... to see that students receive a well-rounded education which will lead to success, both in their careers and their personal endeavors."

The announcement was held in the President's Conference Room at GCC, which was dedicated in the name of GCB in recognition of the substantial gift.
