East Central Community College will celebrate its 100-year anniversary in 2028, and under the leadership of President Dr. Brent Gregory, the college launched its first-ever capital campaign in January. 
 
The capital campaign, called Deeply Rooted, Future Focused, specifically seeks funding to renovate Founders Gymnasium, Ovid S. Vickers Fine Arts Center, Newton Hall, and the Bradford J. Tucker Applied Technology Center. Funds raised will meet the need to create an even more sustainable college that serves the students, faculty, staff, and five-county district.    
 
To date, the campaign has raised over $3.5 million. The goal of this campaign is $4.15 million.
 
Support for the campaign has been significant and East Central will continue to solicit donations until the campaign goal is reached. Leadership anticipates all enhancements and renovations will be completed in the coming years.
