Guam - The Guam Community College will receive $9.4 million from the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act funding to cover capital improvement projects. According to President Mary Okada, GCC took the approach by using components outlined in their facilities master plan.

Projects include the building of a new student center, the completion of the Learning Resource Center, the construction of a generator building, a redundant network, along the replacement of a paint booth to support the auto body shop and the remodeling of their parking lots.

She says projects have already begun, explaining, "We've already got some on a roll. We do have the LRC that has already been in construction. We identified a bridge or gap funding to bridge the funding to ensure that when the funding comes in, that we can reallocate those resources. We've got that under construction already."  As for the other projects, Okada says once the funding is completely secured, the bids will go out.
