SOUTHBRIDGE — Quinsigamond Community College's local campus inaugurated its new science labs Friday afternoon, May 4, with various college and public dignitaries cutting the ribbon on rooms for biology, anatomy, and certified nurse assistants' training.

"This will enable them to pretty well round-out their pathway to health or basic science requirements," said college President Gail Carberry of the 500-plus students currently in health care-related programs. She said the school expects that number to rise to around 800 over the next few years (not all of them in Southbridge).

Part of that rise, she observed, is coming from people laid off from other jobs because of the economy.
