Congressman Roger Marshall, M.D., visited the Garden City Community College Campus on Thursday, April 20. Dr. Marshall was in town to open up his new office just across the street from the college. GCCC President, Dr. Herbert J. Swender and numerous GCCC Employees helped to welcome Dr. Marshall, during the Garden City Chamber of Commerce Ribbon Cutting on Wednesday, April 19.
On Thursday, April 20, Congressman Marshall, M.D., toured the campus to look at facilities and programs. The first stop was at the library and Student Support Services. From there, Dr. Marshall visited with Department of Public Safety Students participating in earth day activities in the PENKA parking lot. DPS students were in the parking lot working the Simulated Impaired Driving Experience (SIDNE) program, where students learn about the hazards of driving while impaired or distracted by texting. The tour moved across the street to Task Force Broncbuster, and the welding facility. Over 16 area high school students were working hard in the welding facility at a competition during the visit. From there the tour made a quick stop at the GCCC John Deere program facility.
In a facebook post, Congressman Marshall shared, “I couldn't be happier to open a new base of operations in Garden City. This is a community on the rise, and full of great examples of innovation and growth in our district. Our office and staff in Garden City will be vital in keeping our finger on the pulse of Southwest, Kansas.”
