The MACC-Hannibal Area Higher Education Center moved to the former AT&T building on 141 Communications Drive in July 2009 after crews worked tirelessly on a quick renovation before August classes began. Two years later, MACC continues to be grateful to AT&T for providing this affordable space for the Center.
Thursday, April 6 MACC signed another two-year lease agreement with AT&T to continue offering classes in the building.
“AT&T is very pleased to be a partner in the progress of higher education in Hannibal, Missouri. Our new lease agreement with the Moberly Area Community College to continue classes at our old call center building is a lease that will save the College approximately $200,000 over the course of two years if they were to lease space at a comparable property. We remain committed to assisting the area with affordable higher education,” said Craig Felzien, AT&T - Regional Director of External Affairs.
The AT&T building is a temporary location for MACC. MACC hopes to remain in the building for the next couple of years while the permanent Hannibal Area location is being constructed near the Hannibal Regional Hospital.
The MACC Hannibal Area Higher Education Center currently has over 440 students enrolled. MACC realizes the need for affordable, quality education is great in the region and looks forward to its future expansion enabling it to service more students than ever before.
