July 19, 2013

From channel3000.com: “Madison College celebrates opening of new building” — MADISON – Madison College celebrated the opening of its new Gateway Building on the Truax Campus Thursday.

MATC dedicated the building’s welcome center to outgoing president Dr. Bettsey Barhorst.

The building houses several lounges, a student achievement center, a gallery and a library, and as the first building on the campus, it will be used to welcome people to Madison College.

“We are so grateful to the taxpayers and voters who voted for the referendum in 2010 when things were not really good. And then the people who had it built in two years,” said Barhorst.

Barhorst will be leaving the college next month and moving to Illinois to be closer to family but she said she’s loved living and working in Madison.

Proceeds from the ticketed event that was hosted by the Madison College Foundation will support student scholarships and educational programs.
