Piedmont Technical College assumed ownership of the old McCormick High School technology center thanks to a generous gift from the McCormick County School District in June of 2010.
Piedmont Technical College officially opened its new facility Tuesday with a dedication and ribbon cutting ceremony. More than 100 people turned out to tour the new campus.
“The college has looked forward to the opening of a new McCormick campus for a long time,” said Jennifer Wilbanks, dean of Piedmont Tech’s county centers.

Piedmont Technical College now provides public computer labs at all locations in all seven of the counties it serves. The labs are staffed by knowledgeable personnel who are available to help computer users. These labs are available through the $437,000 grant Piedmont Tech received with the SC Technical College System, as part of a grant for $5.9M by the US Department of Commerce – National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA).
After a record-setting fall enrollment, officials at PTC are looking forward to a good turnout this spring as the VIP registration period draws near.
Registration for the spring term begins November 1 and runs through November 30. Students who register during this period become “VIPs” and receive their first choice of classes and a $25 registration fee waiver.
