Flathead Valley Community College officials have announced that they've been given $4 million from the Broussard Family, which marks the largest donation ever given to the college.

The money will be used to build a Nursing and Health Education Center as a tribute to the late Rebecca Broussard. College officials say the facility will house classes and labs for FVCC nursing programs as well as other allied health programs. It also will include a student health clinic to provide affordable basic health care services to FVCC students.

"FVCC touches the lives of so many people in our community in many ways," said Jerome Broussard, Rebecca's husband. "We wanted to recognize Becky's extraordinary life as a nurse and philanthropist and build a lasting legacy for Becky who deeply cared about nursing and the community."

"This building will honor Becky for her commitment and dedication to nursing education and the community," said FVCC President Jane Karas in a press release. "The facility will enable FVCC to enhance our nursing education programs and provide our students limitless opportunities. We are sincerely grateful to Jerome and his daughters, Sarah and Rebecca, for their generosity and continued commitment to education and our community."

The Broussard's gift will cover the bulk of construction expenses for a proposed $5 million building on which the college plans to break ground in the spring of 2012.
