State Rep. Jack Cera (D-Bellaire) today announced the release of $126,000 in state funding for the completion of architectural designs for the Eastern Gateway Community College (EGCC) Jefferson Campus Student Success Center project. The goal of the project is to transform the college’s computer wing into a one-stop location for all student support services necessary from the time of enrollment through graduation.


“I am pleased to see the state’s continued support for this exciting project in eastern Ohio,” said Cera. “Centralizing and modernizing student support services will eliminate physical and technological barriers and create a more welcoming environment for all students.”


The state funds will be used to contract with Baxter Hodell Donnelly Preston, Inc. of Columbus for the completion of architectural designs for the Student Success Center project.


The state funding was approved at today’s meeting by the state Controlling Board, a panel tasked with oversight of state spending. Rep. Cera was recently appointed by House leadership to serve on the legislative panel for the 132nd General Assembly.
