Colby Community College received a $10,000 gift from the Thomas County Community Foundation to be used for the new agricultural center on campus. Foundation Director Jada Tubbs made the presentation Wednesday night at halftime of the Trojans men's basketball game.

"On behalf of TCCF, I would like to express our excitement for the new Agricultural Center," Tubbs said. "Our board agrees this is a worthwhile cause to fund and looks forward to its completion."

Construction began in October on the 12,400-square-foot facility and is expected to open in time for the fall 2023 semester.
