LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Some officials want their community college district to open an education center in far southeastern Nebraska.

Beatrice radio station KWBE (https://bit.ly/1QjgkWP ) reports that former Auburn Mayor Bob Engles and other members of the Southeast Career Development Committee made the request at Tuesday’s meeting of the Southeast Community College board in Lincoln.

Engles say that when students from his area go to the district campus in Lincoln for classes, they end up getting jobs in Lincoln and don’t return to their hometowns in far southeastern Nebraska. He says his group members think there are good jobs waiting for trained workers in southeast Nebraska.

College President Paul Illich says the 15-county district is looking at ways to expand its reach beyond its campuses in Beatrice, Lincoln and Milford.
