Groundbreaking for new Ag Power Diesel lab at Mitchell Tech

MITCHELL, S.D.(KMIT)- It was a big day at Mitchell Technical College Tuesday as a groundbreaking ceremony was held for the new Ag Power Diesel lab building.  The new building brings all of MTC’s classes and instruction to the Spruce Street campus on the southeast side of town.  Lieutenant Governor Larry Rhoden was one of the speakers at the groundbreaking.  He says the state had an interest in this project.

Rhoden says the governor’s office fully supported it.

He talks about the importance of this kind of program to the state.

In addition to its direct impact on the Diesel Power program, the expansion will enhance five other programs, providing much-needed space to complete their own lab exercises.
