The trustees of James Sprunt Technical College Thursday approv ed a plan to build a new student center and expand the college head quarters building. The trustees asked Herb McKim - of Ballard, McKim and Sawyer W Architects of Wilmington to present sketches of several plans for the center at their next meeting. The cost of the proposed con struction is estimated at $662,000. The school has $500,000 from the state and $50,000 from Duplin County for capital outlay in addition to some reserve funds. The college expects to save money on the job by having its building-trades students help. ) The approved project includes a one-story, 9,800-square-foot student center near the middle of the compus about equidistant from the Mc Gowen, Hoffler and Herring build ings, the three main buildings of the institution. Estimated cost is $490,000. It also includes a 5,700-square-foot addition to the McGowen building, the college's headquarters, and renovation of it. That is expected to cost about $172,000. The student center is now in the McGowen building. Its relocation and the expansion will provide space for the health education and human resources divisions in the McGowen building. McKim discussed several other plans, which called for additions to the present buildings rather than construction of a new one. The estimated costs of the alternative plans were about the same. "This will get rid of those trailers on the campus," Trustee W.E. Craft said. McKim said the finance commit tee had told him to make plans that would provide more space for the student center, health education, business education, the high tech nology program, industrial training and the human resources program. Students are enrolling for the fall term. Alfred Wells, student affairs officer, said 752 had registered through Thursday. This is about 10 fewer than the enrollment of the 1983 fall term. Wells said he expected another 125 students to enroll through this week. Gayle Weeks, head of nursing education, reported that 18 out of 19 nursing education graduates recent ly passed their licensing test. She said 17 are employed, while the 18th recently had a baby and has not sought employment. Since 1973, she said, 228 of 229 nursing graduates have passed their test. ? Work Bumps Small Town BUMP - Bump, N.C., doesn't appear on any road maps. Bump, N.C. does appear fre quently in the conversation around k C.M. Outlaw's store at Secondary ? Roads 1300 and 1301, about three miles east of Warsaw. The mound of earth on the road in the background is the beginning of the end of Bump, however. C.M. Outlaw said the stop sign at the intersection was changed about five years ago. Previously the east west traffic had to stop at the inter section. For five years the north south traffic has had to stop. Even though the right of way changed, traffic continues to en counter a bump in the road that had not been a problem when cars had to stop. To solve the problem, the state installed an orange and black sign proclaiming "Bump." Local residents soon put up their own identification sign, reading ".Bump City Limit." They added a second sign below it, "Nu? S?no tuary." All the signs are to come down. Moe Mosley, one of the store set, said, "I don't know what they're trying to do to us. Ruin us, 1 reckon. We still got six license plates with 'Bump, N.C. Nut Sanctuary.' " Outlaw said, he's seen no diffe rence in the accident rate since the right of way was changed. "It seems like there've been just as many accidents since as when they were going the other way," he said. f Duplin Agribusiness Fair October 1-6 James Kenan Students Recognize Faculty In Fair Exhibit. jSchool Art Displayed At County Fair.
