Southern Crescent Technical College is scheduled to break ground Thursday on the first building of a proposed eight-building campus in McDonough.
School officials Wednesday said the development has been a major priority for Henry County leaders and has progressed with the help of the local chamber of commerce.
McDonough Mayor Billy Copeland is expected to join representatives from Southern Crescent, the Technical College System of Georgia and Henry County government officials at the groundbreaking ceremony Thursday morning.
Southern Crescent Technical College, which was established in 2010, is a two-year college with campuses in Thomaston, and Griffin and education centers in Jackson, Monticello and Butler. The school has a student body of over 6,500.
McDonough is about 30 miles southeast of Atlanta.
