MVC to Receive $2M from Community Project Funding
Missouri Valley College President Dr. Bonnie Humphrey has announced that the college will receive two million dollars from Community Project Funding. U.S. Representative Emanuel Cleaver, II (D-MO) secured these funds in Community Project Funding with the passage of H.R. 2471. The Community Project Funding will provide federal dollars for critical local projects throughout the Fifth Congressional District of Missouri, including in Kansas City, Raytown, Marshall, Slater, and Lexington, Missouri.
Congressman Cleaver was on the campus of Missouri Valley College today to officially congratulate constituents of the college on the receipt of these funds.
“On behalf of the entire Missouri Valley College campus community, I am extremely grateful for Congressman Cleaver’s help on this important community project,” said Dr. Humphrey. “Missouri Valley is proud to be able to build a new state-of-the-art nursing and health sciences building in order to better serve our Marshall/Saline County community, as well as the entire state of Missouri, in graduating excellent nurses. This building will allow our nursing program to grow and new health related programs to be developed which will help close the gap of needed health professionals in rural areas.”
This funding will be used to help build a new five million dollar nursing and health sciences building on the Missouri Valley campus. The building plans include a 17,000 square foot facility on the northwest corner of campus, designed to be used for not only nursing classes, but to also be available for health-related programs that will be developed in the future.
A one million dollar gift from Don and Julie Julien serves as the lead gift for this new building. With the addition of this Community Project Funding, and other grants and donor gifts, over $4.5 million has been secured for this building project.
