It’s been a long journey, but Catawba Valley Community College finally held its ribbon cutting for the new home of its Furniture Academy on Thursday.

The program is going from 6,000 square feet at its old location in the East Camps of CVCC to 38,000 square feet at the facility on Locust Street in Newton (Old Hickory Tannery). The college closed on the facility in May.

North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory also was on hand during the ribbon cutting.
