West Hills College Lemoore has finalized and closed out Measure L, which was passed by the voters in 2012 to provide financing for construction and facilities on the campus and in the communities WHCL serves.
All of the funds from Measure L have now been allocated toward several projects including the planning and initial construction of the new WHCL student union and campus infrastructure and repairs. Other work funded included a new instructional building and educational facilities in Avenal and Riverdale.
“The generous support of the voters has allowed us to improve our facilities with state-of-the-art instructional equipment and learning space so that West Hills College Lemoore can continue providing high quality instruction that will better prepare our students for careers in our community,” said Dr. Kristin Clark, WHCL President. “We look forward to serving them in our new and updated facilities.”
Measure L was passed in 2012 as a reauthorization of funds from the $31 million Measure E, passed in 2008. Voters approved the new $12.6 million bond measure and it was used to build the new WHCL Student Union, a student center featuring a bookstore, offices and study and social space for students.
“On behalf of the administration, faculty, staff, and West Hills College Lemoore students, we sincerely thank the citizens for their continued support,” Clark said. “We would also like to offer a special thank you to those who served on the Citizen’s Bond Oversight Committee over the past few years, including Ron Alvin, Christine Andrada, Jim McGee, and Amy Ward. We’d also like to thank student committee member Luis Garcia.”
