COLUMBIA, S.C. (WJBF) — A bill in the South Carolina Statehouse could close Denmark Technical College. Now a rally is scheduled at the Statehouse to express the need to keep the school as is. 

The rally will take place on the Statehouse steps on Wednesday, April 3 at 3 p.m. 

There will be a number of speakers including students, alumni, and legislators.

Meanwhile, if the bill is passed Denmark Tech would temporarily close and a nine-member committee will study the possibility of re-opening it as a trade school.

The rally was originally scheduled for Tuesday, April 2.
