Construction Technology School Gets Grand From Lions Club

Western Colorado Community College Assistant Director Dale Doty gives members of the Grand Junction Lions Club an update on the Ken Nesbitt Center today. Funds from a $30,000 donation from the club were used to buy portable equipment like saws and planers that otherwise may not have been available. The donation also helps fulfill a Lions Club legacy, as Ken Nesbitt was a long-time member of the club.

The Nesbitt Center teaches high school and college-age people the skills needed to join the burgeoning ranks of construction workers needed in the Grand Valley and around the country.

Each year the Lions Club raises more than $150,000 to give to various groups in the Grand Valley.
