Stubblefield Learning Center in Lufkin will now have a new place to call home. Thanks to a grant from the TLL Temple foundation.
The $660,000 grant will allow Angelina College to buy the old Carroway-Claybar Funeral Home on FM 819, which will become the new home for the learning center.
It will be closer to Angelina College which is good news since almost 58% of Stubblefield's graduates attend AC. Some say it is a much needed move.
Sallye Darmstadter, director of the Stubblefield Learning Center, said, "It is a much needed move, the extra space will allow us to add additional programs."
They will now be able to have an ESL program, and a dual-enrollment for Angelina College.
