The new 18,000 square foot addition is located on the north side of the Wharton County Junior College’s Johnson Health Occupations Center. The two-phase, $6.5 million project is expected to expand and renovate Wharton County College’s Johnson Health Occupations Center. The work has progressed on a new 18,000 square foot addition being constructed on the facility’s north side. The project began in June of 2017, with a formal groundbreaking ceremony held on Oct. 26, 2017.
