3-13-06 - Big changes are on the way for Ardmore’s Higher Education Center as the board is ready to make it a major focal point of town. With this could come a new, four-year university for Ardmore.
For months the board of trustees for the center has been trying to decide whether to build a bigger Higher Education Center with more colleges and more classes or become a four-year branch of a university. And Monday they received an incentive package offer from the city. The city commissioners sent out a letter to the board offering city land and $4 million.
If the board decides to build the branch university, the Education Center would no longer exist. They hope to have an answer for the public by June.
