Eastfield College Pleasant Grove campus opens with big celebration
On Monday, Dallas County Community Colleges District celebrated the opening of the Eastfield College campus in Pleasant Grove. Leaders and citizens alike were excited about the new campus at 802 S. Buckner Blvd.
Not only will the campus be used for educating Dallas citizens, but it will also house the Southeast Dallas Chamber of Commerce, the Southeast Dallas Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, and the Wilkinson Center.
Eastfield Pleasant Grove already has 300 students registered for the Fall Session. The theme of the day was how the Dallas workforce lags behind in the area of education, and that DCCCD is the largest college system in Texas. The citizens of Southeast Dallas have another landmark to be proud of, and hopefully the city as a whole will embrace it.
