WCC building open house Sunday to show off renovations
The public is invited to attend an open house Sunday at Washtenaw Community College to celebrate the renovations and renaming of the college's Occupational Education building.
That afternoon it will be renamed the Larry L. Whitworth Occupational Education Building, in honor of WCC's recently retired president, according to a news release.
The open house is from 3-4 p.m. Sunday at the college, and a brief ribbon cutting and dedication ceremony for guests precedes the event.
Self-guided tours will highlight some environmentally friendly changes to the building, including rubber flooring and carpeting made from recycled materials, drinking fountains that accommodate refilling water bottles, lighting sensors, LED lights and rooftop solar panels.
