Kilgore — Kilgore College plans to have the renovated Laird Memorial Hospital functional for its health sciences classes by the fall semester, college President Bill Holda said during a Biz Connect luncheon Tuesday in Kilgore.
Holda and Kilgore ISD Superintendent Cara Cooke discussed their visions for the future of education for the city of Kilgore with about 30 community members and officials, including State Rep. David Simpson, R-Longview.
Holda said the unused portion of the old Laird Memorial Hospital will house the college’s health and science courses, which includes four programs: associate degree of nursing, physical therapy assistant, radiological science and surgical technology. The four programs are housed on campus in an 18,000-square-foot building that is shared with other programs.
