SC4 celebrates 85th anniversary in 2008
St. Clair County Community College throughout 2008 is celebrating the 85th anniversary of its founding.
The college officially was created June 11, 1923, as Port Huron Junior College by a vote of the school board for Port Huron Area School District. At that time, the junior college was governed by the school district. The junior college opened for classes Sept. 11, 1923, with six instructors teaching 34 students in 16 classes.
A vote of the people June 12, 1967, officially transformed the junior college into a countywide community college renamed as St. Clair County Community College.
Today, the college is an educational leader, annually serving more than 7,500 students on its 25-acre Port Huron campus, at five extended learning centers and through online classes.
The college will incorporate the anniversary as part of events for students, faculty, staff, alumni and the community throughout 2008. Also planned for this year are special scholarship opportunities and a fall homecoming event.
Sharing the college’s 85th anniversary are two other milestones for SC4.
This year marks the 50th edition of Patterns, a literary and arts publication featuring student work. Patterns is the longest continually published community college literary and arts magazine in the state. This year, two volumes will be released, the first a compilation of work from the past 49 years and the second containing new work by current SC4 students.
Also, the college’s Main Building opened 100 years ago this year, on Sept. 8, 1908. It originally served as the third Port Huron High School building before the college permanently occupied the building in 1957.
