Dedication ceremonies for Manatee Technical Institute’s new main campus will take place 3 p.m. tomorrow at 6305 State Road 70 East.
Speakers at the event will include Karen Carpenter, chairwoman of the Manatee County School Board; Dr. David E. Gayler, Manatee Schools interim superintendent; and Bob Bartz, president of the Manatee County Chamber of Commerce, among others.
The event will feature multiple ribbon cuttings throughout the facility, recognizing people who contributed to the creation of the $44 million, 210,000 square foot campus.
Over 2,000 students a year are expected to be served in the new building, which offers about a dozen programs, including architecture and construction, culinary arts, manufacturing and information technology.
