OTC Foundation

Ozarks Technical Community College says its Foundation raised $18 million in a recent campaign aimed at funding several capital projects.

It helps renovate Hamra Library, creates a new Jared Family Welcome Center for prospective students, and an outdoor classroom at the Lewis Family Early Childhood Education Center.

In a news release, OTC says funding will also allow expansion of the Diesel Technology training facility at its Springfield campus. This will triple the size of training space and increases program enrollment capacity by 45 percent.
