ECPI Charleston New Addition Ribbon Cutting Event held on April 25, 2008

The ECPI and Medical Careers Institute Charleston Campus recently increased its space with the addition of new classrooms, a distance learning lab, reception area, student breakrooms, and faculty offices. On April 25, the grand opening celebration was held. To accommodate increased demand, and after almost a 3 year presence in the Charleston metro area, ECPI identified the need to add more space and to upgrade its existing facilities. The expansion also allows ECPI to grow its programs of study.

In the photos are Jim Rund, Charleston campus president and local councilman Tim Scott cutting the ribbon and Pamela Deboard and Cordero Fredrick, ECPI Student Ambassadors Club presidents, at the sign in desk.

Guests at the Ribbon Cutting included local business leaders, some ECPI graduates, current ECPI faculty and staff, and some former ECPI instructors. The event was held in the beautiful new ECPI atrium.

Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.

Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.
