Why Timing is Everything For New DCCC Student Activities Center

Dodge City, KS (westernkansasnews.com) While Dodge City Community College pushes forward for their new Student Activities Center, there was a time when the project was in doubt even before it started.  

Since part of the project hinged on funds from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to build a storm shelter, budget cuts almost did it in.

DCCC Foundations Director Roger Proffitt says they are getting 500-thousand from FEMA and have already raised 1.5 million dollars.  Total cost for the activities center is estimated at 8.2 million dollars.
