Shawnee Community College To Rename Extension Centers

Starting July 1, the four extension centers at Shawnee Community College will have new names. Currently, the centers are named after the city they are located. The new name will include the county instead. For example,

The Anna Extension Center is now the Union County Extension Center.

The Cairo Extension Center is now the Alexander County Extension Center.

The Metropolis Extension Center is now the Massac County Extension Center.

The Vienna Extension Center is now the Johnson County Extension Center.

In a recent press release, Shawnee Community College President Dr. Tim Taylor states that the college wants to be more inclusive to residents of the entire county so they know that they are welcome at the extension centers. He assures that all of the programs will remain the same. All that is changing is the name. The name of Shawnee’s main campus will not be affected.
