January 27-- A childcare center on the campus of Southeastern Technical College in Swainsboro has a new lease on life.
College President Dr. Cathy Mitchell says an earlier decision to close the center the end of June is beng extended till the end of December thanks to an infusion of new operating funds from Atlanta.
Whether the center reopens next year depends on finding ways to make it more self sufficient. Dr. Mitchell says STC has been subsidizing operations to the tune of more than $100,000 a year at a time when the college's budget has been cut 28 percent over the last three years.
The center serves over 40 youngsters from the Swainsboro area.
