Hopkinsville Community College President, Dr. Jim Selbe announced a major development in the college’s agriculture education program.
Dr. Selbe says the college recently purchased the old Yellow Ambulance building located at North Main Street and Talbert Drive to be the future site of a new agriculture technology building.
