Christian Opportunity Center (COC) will hold a ceremony to dedicate the COC Administration Building in honor of Bruce Nikkel, a former COC Executive Director tomorrow.

The building will be named the Bruce Nikkel Administrative Building. Nikkel was Executive Director from 1973 to 1976. During his tenure, Nikkel successfully secured funding and oversaw the construction of the main office. At the time of his hire in 1973, COC was only special education classrooms with approximately 25 students enrolled. Nikkel fostered community partnerships and was successful in raising over $400,000 to construct a new building for COC.
