FRESNO, Calif. - The west side of Fresno will be getting it's very own college. A satellite campus of Fresno City College is expected to be built on the corner of Church and Walnut. Terance Frazier, the CEO of TFS Investments, owned the 13.5 acres of land where the new school will be built. He sold half of it to the State Center Community College District and donated the rest.
Frazier wanted to build low income housing on the land, but said when he had the opportunity to give it to education, it was a no brainer.
Frazier closed escrow last week.
The land is worth more than $1.3 million dollars, but the district says it only spent $675,000 for the whole site. Parnell and Frazier both agree though, that it's not about the money. They said it's about giving children in a poverty and crime stricken part of town, a glimmer of hope for the future.
