Alvin Community College hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony Oct. 20 to mark the completion of the campus renovation project.

The ceremony featured ACC officials, members of local chambers of commerce and Alvin locals, who went on a self-guided tour of the updated facilities on campus.

The $25 million maintenance project was approved in 2018 and included the replacement of water lines, roof repairs and improvements to electrical and security infrastructure, according to a press release. Interior renovations were made to several buildings, including a complete renovation of the student center.

“Through all of the challenges and the transitions, we have made it to today,” ACC President Robert J. Exley said. “All of the walls that were torn down have been rebuilt.”

ACC Chair Bel Sanchez commended ACC staff who persevered through construction delays and the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in the middle of the construction project.

“It’s exciting to see the culmination of three years of hard work come to fruition,” she said.
