The new Prairie Lakes Healthcare Center for Learning officially opened on Monday following a ribbon cutting by South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem.  The new facility, on the campus of Lake Area Tech, is a partnership between Lake Area Tech and Prairie Lakes Healthcare, who purchased the naming rights for the building at a cost of $3.1 million. 

The new addition adds capacity for 300 more students on the campus of Lake Area Tech.
