More than 200 Weatherford College supporters gathered at the Don Allen Health Science Building Thursday afternoon for the facility’s grand opening and ribbon cutting celebration.
Allied Health students Shannon Coble and Dennis Maguth addressed the audience, speaking about the vast difference in the classrooms and labs they have now compared to what they worked with just last semester.
“This building exemplifies Weatherford College’s commitment to allied health education,” said Maguth, a sonography student. “As we come up the hill and see the Don Allen Health Science Building, there’s a great sense of pride. It’s a great time to be a student.” 
Following the grand opening ceremony and a ribbon cutting photo, community members toured the new 31,000-square-foot building which houses WC’s nursing, respiratory therapy, radiologic technology, sonography and phlebotomy programs. Visitors were able to see first-hand the simulated labs and hospital rooms complete with SimMan patients, all part of a state-of-the art learning environment.
The $6 million project was funded from the college’s reserves and augmented by a $400,000 contribution from Jerry and Vickie Durant. College officials said the project, much like the recent Academic Building, was completed on time and under budget.
“Our mission is to provide effective learning opportunities that enrich the lives of our students and the communities we serve,” said WC President Dr. Kevin Eaton. “I truly believe that all of the capital projects we have completed over the past four years have done just that. They have enriched the lives of both our students and our community.”
Board of Trustees Chairman Frank Martin and WC Foundation President Bob Glenn also took time in the ceremony to thank the community for their generosity in the recent “The Time is Now For Your College” capital campaign, as well as the overall support of the Parker County community.
