Date Change for Health Sciences Facility Grand Opening

We have decided to delay the grand opening of the Health Sciences Facility in order for it to occur when we can put our best foot forward to our guests.

The dedication event will now take place on Sept. 20 at 2 p.m. This will give the College plenty of time to ensure the programs are moved in and ready to showcase.

There will be refreshments and tours following the ceremony. To RSVP, contact Cherie Steele at 253-589-6010 or cherie.steele@ctpc.edu.
