Child Care Lab groundbreaking (July 11, 1988): Although it was designed to offer students real world experiences in their study of choice—similar to those afforded students in the dental and cosmetology programs—the Child Care Lab was not fully supported by all BOT members. Leland Glazebrook, the Lab’s most vocal opponent, for example, worried that the program was not self-sustainable. On the other hand, Mary Hill Dobbs believed it was an academic program worth the investment, and felt it could be “cost effective” if enough children were enrolled. Construction cost for the building was estimated to be $138,000; a formal dedication ceremony for the Lab occurred later that year (October 10), with its doors officially opening a week later on October 17th.
