Roxbury Community College's "Reclaim, Rename, Repurpose" project will support renovations to the historic Dudley House at RCC. Thanks to Senator Ed Markey securing $4 million in congressionally directed spending for the project, the newly revitalized facility will be used to expand RCC’s green energy instructional spaces while providing a new venue for community engagement and recognition of RCC’s history.
On June 2, 2022, Senator Markey joined Interim President Jackie Jenkins-Scott and State Representative Chynah Tyler to formally announce the “Reclaim, Rename, Repurpose” project.
“This $4 million investment is important for two reasons. Not only will this project revitalize this historic landmark, but it will also revitalize our workforce,” said Sen. Markey.
“On behalf of the entire Roxbury community, I want to say thank you, Senator Markey,” said Interim President Jenkins-Scott. In just a few years, our neighbors will be able to look at this building with pride. They will be able to see a building that they’re proud of, that is clean, that is renovated. They will see a building that they can use. They will see a building that their children and grandchildren can come and learn in. And they will see a building that benefits the entire community. So I know speak for thousands of people in this neighborhood when I say thank you.”
