LSC-O unveils new student nursing building

ORANGE — Wednesday was a day of celebration on the campus of Lamar State College-Orange as the administration unveiled its newest gem to the public.

A ribbon cutting ceremony was held Wednesday morning at Lamar State College-Orange to the centerpiece of the local college, the new nursing building located on Front Street.

“This building is another step forward for Lamar State College-Orange,” said Dr. Michael Shahan, president of LSC-O. “We tried to make sure instruction was the focus of this building, and we are proud to have it as part of our school.”

Gina Simar, director of the Allied Health Division of LSC-O, was equally pleased  with the new, state-of-the-art facility.

“When I started in the Vocational Nursing Program as student here in 1983, it consisted of two hospital beds, two tables, 15 desks and it was all in one room,” Simar explained. “Look what we have now. This building is amazing and will serve Lamar State College-Orange and its students for years to come.”
