On December 19, 1991, Dyersburg State opened the newly constructed Gibson County facility next to Peabody High School in Trenton. The first classes were held in the Center in January, 1992.

Since opening its doors more than 20 years ago, over 6,500 students have attended classes at the DSCC Gibson County Center. Many of these students have commented that they would never have started college if it were not for the DSCC Gibson County Center.

The Center itself houses six master classrooms, all of which include Sympodium interactive displays; an interactive television (distance learning via videoconferencing) classroom; a mathematics lab with 30 computer stations; a general purpose computer lab with 20 computer stations; a Learning Resource Center equipped with 20 computers; and a combination science classroom/lab which includes 24 lab stations. In addition, the Center has a large commons area which houses six computer stations and a bookstore.

The Tennessee Early Childhood Training Alliance (TECTA)  was one of the first programs to be administered by DSCC and housed at the DSCC Gibson County Center. This is a statewide training system designed to provide child care workers with up to 30 hours of free instruction in five areas: infant/newborn, school age, administrator, center-based car, and family-based care.
