A ribbon-cutting and open house celebration is planned for the Superior Plumbing Veterans Education Career Transition Resource (VECTR) Center at 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 4, at the Chattahoochee Tech Marietta Campus. Members of the public are cordially invited to attend.
An existing building on the Marietta Campus has received an extensive, $2.25 million renovation to house the Superior Plumbing VECTR Center. This facility will serve as a gateway for veterans and their families who are transitioning into post-secondary educational institutions and into the civilian workforce. The TCSG State Board approved naming this facility the Superior Plumbing VECTR Center in honor of a $500,000 donation presented last year by Superior Plumbing President and TCSG State Board Member Jay Cunningham to the Chattahoochee Tech Foundation.
The Superior Plumbing VECTR Center also will house the college’s Jim Cunningham Veteran Services Center, which provides a supportive environment for the college’s vast student population of veterans and military-affiliated students. One in 12 students at Chattahoochee Tech is either a veteran or a family member of a veteran.
