Home Federal Bank recently donated $10,000 towards the Southeast Educational Alliance Center on the Middlesboro Campus of Southeast Kentucky Community & Technical College (SKCTC). This was the third installment of a pledge totaling $50,000.

According to SKCTC President Dr. Vic Adams, the building’s new conference room will be named in honor of Home Federal. “We appreciate Home Federal Bank and the generosity they have shown our college,” says Adams. “Their giving spirit will help us provide new and better learning opportunities for our students.”

Stephen Cambron, Home Federal Bank’s Market Manager, says, “It is an honor and privilege for Home Federal Bank to be a continuing partner with Southeast to construct the new center.”

In June 2017, construction began on what will be a state-of-the-art facility housing the Nursing program, workforce training, and the Aviation-Aerospace Technology program, a partnership with Eastern Kentucky University. The center will also have a 1,000-square foot community room with the potential for hosting community events as well as new programming.

The building is being funded by BuildSmart, an effort lead by community members and college supporters. “As a community bank,” says Cambron, “Home Federal Bank understands the importance of education and job opportunities made available through projects such as this and its long term positive impact on our community.”

This will be the first new building on the Middlesboro campus since the original three were erected in 1995. The Educational Alliance Center will open for classes in January.
