Georgia Highlands College has received a total of $4.1 million in state funding to renovate its Winn Building in Dallas near the current Paulding instructional site. The project will transform the facility into a modern academic building and expand degree and program offerings in the area. GHC was approved for funding under the fiscal year 2019 state budget which was approved by Legislature and signed by Gov. Nathan Deal. The Winn Building, a former bank building, was gifted to GHC in 2010 from Paulding County. “The new academic building will include more classrooms, a physical education lab, an academic success center for tutoring and advising and a new chemistry lab to accommodate students who take classes at our Paulding location,” GHC President Don Green said.
