Lake Cumberland Regional College & Workforce Center architects rendering.

The new Lake Cumberland Regional College and Workforce Center will offer opportunities to receive college academic and technical degrees for all sectors of the population. The center is being constructed on the grounds of the Russell County High School but will be a resource for the entire region, (Russell, Adair & Casey Counties). Branscum Construction has been hired by the Russell County Board of Education as the Construction Manager for the new Lake Cumberland Regional College and Workforce Center.

The Lake Cumberland Regional College & Workforce Center is not just a high school vocational education facility. It is a College and Workforce Center that was visualized by a wide array of community partners with varied perspectives, needs and ideas in which this project was conceived. The new technology center will provide training in five areas; Advanced Manufacturing, Healthcare, IT Services, Construction Trades, and Automotive Technology and will serve over 2,000 high school students from the region. Additionally, over 600 adults will have access to the programs in the evenings.

The new LCRCWC is a partnership of Lindsey Wilson College, the Kentucky Community and Technical College System, Eastern Kentucky University and Western Kentucky University to provide Associate to Bachelor programs. Students work toward an Associate Degree in high school and enroll in an institution of higher learning to complete a four-year degree. Certification programs will be offered as well.
