Crawford County will get its first institution of higher education with the Crawford Connection Center. Plans to renovate a vacant county-owned building in downtown Bucyrus, across Walnut Street from the courthouse, got a big financial boost Thursday. The Timkin Foundation is contributing $500,000 toward the new site of North Central State College. N-C State President Dr. Dorey Diab says this $2.1-million project fits in with the college's mission. The Community Foundation of Crawford County looks forward to this addition. When renovations of the 9000 square-foot building are complete, and it opens in the fall of next year, it's expected to spur more development. The Crawford Connection Center is expected to have an enrollment of 75 students in its first year, and will provide workforce development training to at least fifty workers in each of its first two years.
