S.C. Could Close Historically Black Tech CollegeMarch 8, 2018 |
by Bristow Marchant
One S.C. technical college’s 70-year history could come to an end if a recommendation by a state board is approved.
Faced with declining enrollment and concerns about the school’s finances, the president of the state technical college system is recommending Denmark Tech close its doors – at least as an independently run college.
Local leaders are worried about the effect of losing the small-town institution in an economically challenged rural area, 50 miles south of Columbia.
