Officials from the city of Noblesville and Ivy Tech Community College will host an event Tuesday to celebrate the completion of $30 million in improvements to the school’s campus in the Hamilton County city. The work includes a new atrium and refinished gymnasium at the campus, which previously served as a Noblesville High School building.
The grand opening will be attended by outgoing Ivy Tech President Tom Snyder, Central Indiana Region Chancellor Kathleen Lee and Noblesville Mayor John Ditslear.
