CSH projects still on task



“We need to establish a friendly, green environment in everything we do on this campus,” Rowe said.

Board member Dr. Stas Preszewski said grants for these endeavors are real.

“Some are matching, which basically take your cost to 50 percent. This gives you a decisive advantage. This is a terrific idea,” Preszewski said. 

Darrell Davis, former laboratory director for the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), mentioned the agency's interest in the Walker Building for an analytical training laboratory in October.

Davis said Central State suited the needs for a lab space dealing with numerous forensic sciences. The former director met with an interested DEA administrator recently.

Couch said having someone with credentials like Davis adds to the Walker project urgency. Davis intends to pursue funding before the end of the year.

According to the authority's interim executive director, the Walker Building is more than two years from becoming funded, renovated, equipped and outfitted for a laboratory.

“We won’t have the Walker Building done by the time he gets funding. He is very aggressive and has a vision. I don't think he is going to stop as far as this program goes,” Couch said.
