SCC expands Keokuk campus to help unemployed people find jobs

KEOKUK, Ia. (WGEM) -

Lee County continues to have the highest unemployment rate in Iowa.

Southeastern Community College is expanding its services in Keokuk to help give people the work skills they need.

SCC is expanding its adult education, workforce readiness and training programs.

To do that, the Keokuk campus is adding a portable classroom that holds about 50 students, and officials say it will assist people in getting back out into the workforce.

"People are looking for ways to be able to get a job or to get a better job, but it is also what we are hearing from industry and business. What they need in their workforce and so we are trying to be responsive to them and skill development," said Teresa Garcia, the Dean of the SCC Keokuk campus. 

The portable classroom will arrive next week and officials they plan to starting using it soon.
