CRC breaks ground on new housing complex

PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) - Crowley's Ridge College broke ground on an all new housing complex on it's campus on Friday.

The Joe A. and Wanda Hall Johnson housing complex project is now officially underway on the college's campus.

The new housing facility will be used as the new home to some of the school's honor students. President Ken Hoppe said this is something the campus has been needing, "Within the last five years we have seen an increase in our student population," he said, "That in turn has put a strain on our student resident halls on campus."

The project is expected to be completed by fall of 2012.
