Despite wet conditions earlier in the week, North Greenville College was successful in keeping the old Tigerville Elementary School building a part of the rural community landscape. The college moved the seventy year old building a few yards down N. Tigerville Road to a prepared location facing the main college campus.
North Greenville College’s rapid growth from 329 students to 1,800 over the past decade has caused the school to need additional facilities for its academic programs.
Permission was granted last fall by the Greenville County School Board for the old structure to be given to the college and is ideal for one of the college’s needs.
“The building will be converted into a 100-seat theatre and classrooms for our theatre department,” stated NGC President Dr. Jimmy Epting. “We hope to have the building operational by next spring or fall 2006,” Epting added.
The college is thrilled with the addition of this historic structure to their campus. “The building is historic to this area and we are honored to make it a part of our campus and keep it in the community,” Epting said.
