Official Groundbreaking for New Administration Building - Monday, December 09, 2013

Nunez Community College held a groundbreaking ceremony for construction of the new administration building. The new building will replace the administration building destroyed by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

The ceremony was held on the College’s campus at 3710 Paris Road in Chalmette on Friday, December 6th. The chancellor of Nunez Community College, Dr. Thomas R. Warner, was joined by Dr. Joe May, president of the Louisiana Community and Technical College System (LCTCS); Woody Ogé, First Vice Chair of the LCTCS Board of Supervisors; senators A.G. Crowe (District 1) and Jean-Paul "JP” Morrell (District 3); members of the Foundation Board of Nunez Community College; and Nunez students, faculty, staff, and friends.

Construction is currently underway, and the building is slated for opening in late 2014.

Though the celebration was to honor the symbolic birth of "bricks and mortar”, Nunez Chancellor, Dr. Thomas Warner, said "It’s about the people; what we do with this building should support our students and our community.”
