Huntington Learning Center held the official grand opening Wednesday of its new St. Cloud office location on 13th Street between Home Depot and Wal Mart with a ribbon cutting attended by the St. Cloud Chamber of Commerce and other local luminaries like St. Cloud Mayor Nathan Blackwell.

“I can’t think of a more significant way to impact the community and change lives through education,” he said.

Wey Wey Wong, franchise owner of the St. Cloud location, said she and the learning center have been welcomed by the community.

“We hope to change the future by changing education,” she said at the ribbon cutting. “We are partners to school.”
