Property that was once a hub for several of Haywood Community College's Continuing Education courses was recently sold to Haywood County. Four buildings which served as classrooms for such continuing education courses as stain glass, jewelry, basic law enforcement, nurses' assistant, phlebotomy, and various emergency medical service courses suffered severe damage during the 2004 floods caused by Hurricanes Katrina and Ivan. The property is located on Glance Street in Clyde.
In October 2006, Haywood Community College received permission from the State Board of Community Colleges to dispose of the property and the HCC Board of Trustees approved the sale of the property in a July 2007 Board meeting. The value of the property was appraised at and sold for $1,023,000.
