Churchill County and the city of Fallon each approved generous gifts to help Western Nevada Community College in Fallon continue to grow. The county approved $50,000 and the city $25,000 to help the college acquire 4.8 acres on the campus' west side. The estimated price of the parcel is $650,000. County resident and retired legislator Virgil Getto has also pledged a gift of $150,000 for the expansion.
WNCC Fallon Dean Bus Scharmann said the campus is virtually landlocked and the property is needed to meet expected growth in campus programs and enrollment.
"These generous gifts from the city and county demonstrate the commitment this community has always had to WNCC and its students," said Scharmann.
