Legal Entity:  
The Polk County Economic/Industrial Development Corporation, a 501(c) (3) non-profit corporation, and its executive board have served as the steering committee for the Polk County College/Commerce Center project.

The Polk County Higher Education and Technology Foundation was chartered June 11, 2009 as a non-profit organization with the purpose of providing greater educational access and the opportunity for economic development within the county and surrounding area and provide a better quality of life for the residents of Polk County.

Angelina College has entered into an agreement with the Polk County Higher Education and Technology Foundation to lease and be responsible for the curriculum, operation and maintenance of the college facility. This purpose is also within the statutory mission of Angelina College, a public state/supported community college.  Polk County is within the state-mandated service area of Angelina College.

Angelina College, located in Lufkin, Texas, serves Polk County and the surrounding counties of East Texas. Angelina College presently offers a nursing training program located on the fifth floor of Memorial Medical Center of Livingston. As the community grows and the need for health care grows the
College will eventually lose their opportunity to use the hospital facility.
