JWCC's Golden Anniversary


Founded in 1974, John Wood Community College will soon enter its 50th year with a full slate of activities to recognize the Trail Blazers who forged the first half-century and create opportunities to help more students find their path to success.

To mark the Golden Anniversary, JWCC will launch a Pathways to Promise Scholarship Fund Drive, establish the Trail Blazer Network, and publish a commemorative book chronicling the College’s first 50 years.
