CLERMONT — Throngs of interested officials and students on Monday walked into the new Science-Health building at Lake-Sumter State College’s South Lake campus.

More than 150 people showed up to peek inside the 51,000-square-foot facility off Hancock Road and see its rows of untouched computers and laboratory space.

“Our students will now have state-of-the-art equipment and be led by high-quality faculty,” said John Moore, president of South Lake Hospital, which donated $1 million to the project.

The new building will be used by Lake-Sumter students and dual-enrollment high school students attending the Health Sciences Collegiate Academy.

Students from Lake Minneola, South Lake and East Ridge high schools, along with Montverde Academy, a private international boarding school in south Lake County, may apply for a rigorous education that can end in an associate in arts degree from Lake-Sumter along with their high school diploma.

“I believe the Health Sciences Collegiate Academy has made south Lake County a destination,” Moore said.

The associate degree will come “at no additional cost to either their families or themselves,” college President Stan Sidor said.
