CARMI – The long-awaited career and technical education center at Southeastern Illinois College (SIC) in Carmi will break ground during a ceremony April 19 at 10 a.m.

The new Stanford D. Williams Career & Training Center will be the regional hub for career and workforce educational needs in the northern region of SIC’s district, according to officials. It will initially include training for welding, commercial driver’s license (CDL), and auto/diesel programs, as well as introductory trades education.

The college said it anticipates two phases of the construction will be “substantially” completed around December 2023. State and local funds will be combined with a donation by Stan Williams to bring the center to fruition.

The public is welcome to attend the ceremony, which will be held at the David L. Stanley White County Center, located at 1700 College Ave. in Carmi. Refreshments will follow the ceremony.
