State awards Tech $50 million
The end results of the improvements, Reneau said, will be a “fantastic campus,” with a tremendous economic impact on the city of Ruston.
“This is a hope and dream come true,” Reneau said. “(Rep.) Hollis Downs did an outstanding job for Tech, and we are all appreciative. There’s a lot to be done, so we’ll roll up our sleeves and get to work.”
One of the university’s projects expected to help keep college graduates in the area and stimulate economic growth is the Tech Research Park Campus, for which the university will receive $25 million to develop and build.
