$20 Million Approved for New WAAT Building

"Securing this funding represents the power of partnerships," said WCS Superintendent Dr. Lane Mills. "I am so appreciative of the support from the Wilson County Commissioners, Wilson Community College, Wilson Community College Foundation and all of the industry leaders who serve on the WAAT Advisory Board. This is a great day for WAAT, WCS and for Wilson County. I am excited for the students and staff who are going to benefit greatly from a state-of-the-art facility on the campus of Wilson Community College. This facility will also benefit students at the community college who will have access to lab space and other resources. WAAT has seen tremendous success since it opened in the fall of 2016, and I believe moving into a new building with more space that the students and staff can call their own is going to take the program to new heights. I am especially proud of and excited for Principal Krystal Cox who has been instrumental in WAAT's success from the very beginning.”
