Mid-Plains Community College President Ryan Purdy breaks a brick at the site of the college’s new East Campus, 905 E. Seventh St. in McCook, Wednesday afternoon as part of a ceremony that was open to the public.

The action officially kicked off construction at the site, which used to serve as McCook’s Elks Club. Perry and Vicky Case donated the building and surrounding property to the college in 2015 in the hopes that it could be used for educational purposes.

The generous donation will allow the college to expand and enhance its nursing, emergency medical services and business and community education program offerings.
