South Plains College brings millions to Levelland economy

Posted: Updated:

Levelland residents say that in addition to bettering their workforce, South Plains College also brings tremendous economic growth to the city.

They say the college has a huge influence on surrounding businesses, while various events put on by the athletic, musical and theatrical departments also bring money to the area.

South Plains College President Kelvin Sharp says, "I think the role of South Plains College is pretty important - not just from the monetary standpoint, the economic standpoint - but also what we contribute to the community."

Dr. Sharp estimates the current students here will generate about $13 million dollars in annual labor.
