Worcester, Ma – A significant amount of excavation on the campus of Quinsigamond Community College began in April necessitating moving Worcester County’s Tornado Memorial to a safe storage facility. The memorial stone will be relocated upon completion of all excavation work, which is leading to the building and paving of a new road circling internally around the entire campus.

A meeting with a number of the original members of the Tornado Memorial committee will be scheduled late in the summer. Members will be asked to assist the College in finding a permanent location on campus for the memorial. A rededication ceremony will be scheduled thereafter.

Quinsigamond Community College is the most affordable higher education in Worcester County. As a regional leader in education and workforce development, QCC serves the diverse educational needs of Central Massachusetts by providing affordable, accessible, and high quality programming leading to transfer, career, and lifelong learning.
