Of their total facilities, Daymar College maintains 6 relatively smaller campuses, including the new Madisonville location, which hosted an Open House and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony from 11am-1pm today, September 23rd.
With music provided by the 93.9 WKTG van, refreshments available to everyone in attendance, a presentation from our local Honor Guard veterans, and speeches from community officials and Daymar College staff, the event brought out approximately 75 or more people from our region by 11:30am.
During the speech-based introduction, which was held inside the recently finished facility, those in attendance heard encouraging and supportive words from Chamber of Commerce Board Member, Bill Young; Madisonville’s Mayor, Will Cox; Hopkins County Judge-Executive, Donnie Carroll; Daymar College President, Mark Gabis; KY Senator, David Boswell; and Madisonville’s Campus Director, Pat Vincent. Several staff members, current students, and past alumni came to the front of the crowd during this time as well.
Following the speeches, everyone made way to the parking lot in front of the building, and applauded as the legendary ribbon was cut, officiating Daymar College’s place in our region. In addition, the Honor Guard veterans held a flag raising ceremony and got the crowd involved as they recited the pledge of allegiance.
