ARCHBOLD, Ohio - The board of trustees at Northwest State Community College has approved more than $2 million to renovate an old school in Metamora, Ohio, into a branch campus.
Included in the cost is a technological upgrade of the three-story building, which opened in 1909. During the renovation, Northwest will open enrollment Oct. 23 for courses in temporary classrooms in Metamora.
The board approved funding the renovation at a Tuesday afternoon meeting, college officials said.
The renovation will be paid for with $400,000 from the Ohio government, $75,000 from the Farmers and Merchants State Bank, $763,500 set aside from current reserves, and $1 million that will be borrowed from college reserves and reimbursed through fund-raising efforts and operations.
