ACC’s concrete technology celebrates 50 years

The 50th year anniversary of the Alpena Community College concrete tech program will be the spotlight of a celebration this week.

The celebration will start at 2 p.m. Friday at the World Center for Concrete Technology on the ACC campus.

“We’ve invited alumni, different industry contacts, instructors and more. We want to celebrate one of the programs that’s so beneficial to ACC,” Communications Technician Jess Ruppert said.

She said the event is open to the public and everyone is welcome. There will be a few speakers and afterward there will be tours of the building.

“I think it’s awesome for any of our programs, especially the concrete tech program because of the roots with the Alpena area. It’s an area we’ve been able to work with the community,” she said.
