Lanier Technical College held the grand opening of its Forsyth Conference Center & Healthcare Building on Tuesday.“It was a long time coming but it was well worth waiting for, because they really did a great job with it,” District 27 state Sen. Jack Murphy said after the event. Murphy, the ceremony’s keynote speaker, is credited with securing the majority of the funding for the $14 million structure.“The first thing I did [after being elected in 2003] was meet with the governor,” Murphy said. “I kind of started the ball rolling trying to get the money, but believe me there’s a lot of people that’s helping us to get the money…the delegation got right behind me and got behind Lanier Tech.”
