On Wednesday, May 21, Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle and District 8 state Sen. Tim Golden spoke at Wiregrass Technical College on how the 2015 budget will benefit Lowndes County.
The budget allots $1.9 million to both Wiregrass Georgia Technical College and to Valdosta State University.
For Wiregrass, the $1.9 million will be utilized for pre-design funds for the $25.6 million Lanier Hall, an Allied Health Building on the Valdosta campus. This new facility is significant to Wiregrass, South Georgia Medical Center, and the community because it will allow Wiregrass to expand its health care training programs.
